While it might take a lot of energy to install an inground pool, it shouldn’t take as much energy to run one. Whether you are in the design phase or have had a pool for years, it is extremely important to consider dependable energy-efficient pool equipment that prevents energy costs from breaking the bank each month. According to our friends at Hayward Energy Solutions, an energy-efficient heat pump alone can help you save up to 80 percent on your heating costs. In addition, products that save energy, water and reduce operation expenses help protect our planet in the long haul.
So which parts are the best energy-saving and cost-effective investments when it comes to your inground pool? Here are four devices that can save you money and reduce your carbon footprint if you are considering going green.
- Pool Pump
Energy-efficient pumps that maximize water flow while minimizing energy consumption are ideal. A pump that operates at slower speeds for longer periods of time typically delivers superior filtration and performance. In addition, energy-efficient pumps tend to run cool and quiet since they filter water under less pressure.
- Pool Heater
Energy-efficient pool heaters are designed to maintain an ideal water temperature at all times. These special types of devices are also quiet and economical, while at the same time very durable. Look for compact designs that enable ease of installation and fast servicing for new or existing pools.
- Robotic Cleaner
Certain robotic cleaners typically use less energy when compared to pressure cleaners, but don’t mistake their efficiency for laziness. The right robotic cleaner covers the entire pool, including the bottom, sides and all the way to the tile line. Most are easy to use and some even arrive as a plug-and-play unit, no additional tools required.
- LED Lighting
LED lighting not only transforms the look of your pool after dark, but also uses drastically less energy and lasts up to 10 times as long as incandescent lights. Even though they are energy-efficient, LED lights deliver remarkable color, as well as amazing cost savings and installation versatility for new pools, spas and fountains.
