Investing in energy-efficient pool equipment is a wise decision that can benefit your pool, your finances, and your environmental health. Nowadays, manufacturers have developed more efficient alternatives for almost every type of pool equipment.
If you are interested in reducing your energy costs, we at Goodall Pools & Spas offer a range of options such as variable speed pumps, LED lights, heat pumps, electronic controls, solar covers, and more. We are always happy to provide suggestions that may help increase your pool's efficiency and save you money in the long run.
You can improve your pool’s efficiency in numerous ways. When it comes right down to it, every component you see on the equipment pad and in the pool itself has an energy-efficient option available in the market. Below, we have listed some of the most prevalent pool equipment options that can help improve your pool’s performance, save you money on electricity bills, and lower your carbon footprint.
A variable-speed pool pump allows you to adjust the speed of the motor to match the pool's needs, whereas a single-speed pump runs at a constant speed, regardless of the pool's requirements. This means you can lower the pump’s energy output when the pool is not in use.
According to ENERGY STAR, using a variable speed pump can result in saving up to 75% of your original pumping bill. We can even use an energy calculator to help you estimate your potential savings by switching from a single-speed pump to a variable speed pump.
Would you like to extend your swimming season in the spring and fall? With a heat pump, you can easily add a few extra weeks to your pool season, while also saving on energy costs compared to using gas heaters.
You can achieve energy savings beyond your pool pump and heat pump by using cartridge filters. They offer convenience, value, and the best overall performance compared to sand and diatomaceous earth (DE) filters, which use more water and can create a mess when backwashing. Cartridge filters require no backwashing, and therefore can help you save on both water and pool chemicals as well.
LED lights with their long lifespan can help reduce both the energy use and cost of replacing bulbs.
A solar blanket is a thick, durable cover made of a special material that allows sunlight to pass through and traps heat inside the pool. By covering the surface of the water, the solar blanket reduces heat loss through evaporation and can help keep the water warm even on cooler days. This can significantly reduce the amount of energy needed to heat the pool, ultimately saving you money on your energy bills.
