Running a pool in the summer takes a lot of electrical energy to maintain desirable cool temperatures in the face of extreme heat.
This year, we’re spilling all the swimming pool energy-saving tips so you can feel better every time you take a dip:
POOL HEATING OPTIONS CAN REDUCE COSTS AND ENERGY
We know it’s hot, but pool water can still be cold! A solid pool water temperature ranges from 78 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit. But, when the pool temperature rises, so do costs. Obviously, in warmer climates, costs won’t increase as much. However, either way, costs vary depending on the location and keeping in mind the increased percentage can save energy and money!
By integrating an energy-efficient pool heater, you can start your journey to pool savings!
GAS VS. ELECTRIC POOL HEATERS
Gas-fired pool heaters use natural gas or propane to warm the water. On the other hand, electric pool heaters don’t generate heat on their own- instead, they capture heat and circulate it from one place to another through electricity. When it comes to cost, electric pool heaters do cost more. Therefore, gas pool heaters are more cost-efficient.
Electric pool heaters work the best in cooler temperatures, ideally, 45 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The colder it is outside the more air the electric pool heater pulls in and the more energy they use.
Becoming aware of pool heating options can help decrease pool operating costs and save energy this summer!
