4 Ways to Make Your Pool More Energy Efficient

energy efficient pool ideas

Owning a pool is an amazing experience. Spending time in a pool always makes you feel refreshed. Imagine if you could enjoy your pool even more because you know you are saving money on its upkeep. Goodall Pools & Spas has been operating in Pennsylvania for almost 60 years. Let our friendly, knowledgeable staff help you with upgrading your pool and its equipment for savings galore. Here are 4 ways to make your pool more energy efficient. 

We carry high-quality energy-efficient equipment to help with this goal. Any and all of these equipment upgrades will help put savings back in your wallet.

Start Saving with a Pump Switch-up

Getting a variable-speed pump is the first way to make your pool more energy efficient. Single and double-speed pumps have been getting pools through swim seasons for a very long time. However, pool equipment manufacturers have worked to create a better option and have succeeded with a variable-speed pump. 

As its name suggests, a VSP has various speeds to utilize for various pool maintenance tasks. These pumps are known for their longevity and for less noise. This Pentair’s pool pump savings calculator can help you determine the approximate amount you would be saving. A VSP also helps a pool’s filtration system with its important work, which makes it a great investment all around.

Lessen the Light Running Bill with LED Lights

You are probably familiar with the term LED lights, but maybe you’ve never considered using them in your pool. LED bulbs use much less energy than regular bulbs, no matter where you put them to use. They also last longer than their counterparts.

Another perk of LED pool lights is the versatility and variety they provide. You can find multi-color lights, underwater lights, and even floating lights to make already enjoyable swimming even more exciting. Night swimming with your spectacular LED lights will be a favorite family activity.

Extend Your Swim Season with an Energy-Efficient Heater

Perhaps you and your family are always eager for summer swim season to arrive and very disappointed to see it go. An energy-efficient pool heater will give you the flexibility to comfortably start swimming in late spring and to keep swimming until the coldest days of fall arrive. Its energy efficiency will not add stress to your budget for these additional days of aquatic entertainment.

Strengthen the Savings with a Solar Cover

One more very affordable method for cutting costs on pool operations is to use a solar cover. A solar cover first helps to keep chemicals from evaporating. Since chemicals are an inevitable expense of pool maintenance, preserving them is saving you money. 

A solar cover also helps to maintain the temperature for comfortable swimming, especially when nighttime temperatures start to dip a little bit. Finally, a cover also helps to keep debris out of the pool. This helps lighten the load on your filter. 

These 4 ways to make your pool more energy efficient are definitely ways to make costs for running your pool considerably lower. Any of our staff at our five retail locations can help you get the money-saving upgrades you need for ultimate pool enjoyment.
