Did you know that pool pumps are sometimes referred to as the heart of the pool system? That’s because they pump crucial chemicals throughout your pool and bring water to the filter, chlorinator, and heater to be sent back to your pool clean and sanitized.
Upgrading your pool pump to a variable speed pump could save you thousands of dollars in just a few years. How? Read on for more!
What Makes Variable Speed Pumps Different?
Variable speed pool pumps work on the same principle as hybrid cars. They use an advanced permanent rotary motor that’s much more efficient than any single- or two-speed pump.
In fact, variable speed pumps are so efficient that they offer energy savings of up to 90% compared to traditional pool pumps.
Today’s variable speed pool pumps also offer other features. Depending on the model, you might get:
- An easy-to-read rotatable keypad
- Advanced programming capabilities
- The ability to add features without affecting pump performance
- Real-time clock and advanced digital keypad
- Ultra-quiet motor
How Much Could You Save?
Your energy bill savings will vary depending on your pool size, energy rates, type of pump you have, and other factors. However, here are some estimates about how much money you could save with a variable speed pool pump compared to a single-speed pump running 12 hours a day, based on a 20,00-gallon pool:
- At $0.16 per kWh, you could save up to $1500 a year
- At $0.20 per kWh, you could save up to $1800 a year
- At $0.30 per kWh, you could save up to $2700 a year
The larger your pool and the higher your energy rates, the more savings you’ll see on your electric bill every month.
How Can I Save Even More Money?
As long as you’re upgrading your pool system, why not add a solar pool heater? Use the sun to heat your pool and save even more money on your electric bill each month.
For the ultimate way to save money – and the environment – why not go ahead and add solar panels, too?
Solar energy is more environmentally conscious and sustainable than just about any other type of energy. Even seemingly harmless energy sources like nuclear and hydropower require dams that permanently change the natural environment.
