Conserving Energy Means Saving Money
The typical Southern California pool owner runs their pool 40% more, annually, than someone who lives elsewhere in the country due to our mild climate and the fact that we don’t drain our pools and shut them down during the colder winter months.
Because our run time in Southern California is year-round, our pool pumps continue to consume electricity every single day of the year, which is an important reason to make sure you don’t overlook how your pool pump is contributing to your high utility expense.
Mediterranean has been installing pool pumps since the 1970’s, always resulting in huge utility savings and a quieter outdoor living space for our customers.
The Department of Energy says that you can replace your pool pump and run it TWICE AS LONG and still save 50% in energy and expense. This is possible because it takes far less energy to move the large amount of water in a pool slowly rather than quickly. You can compare it to driving a car at a lower speed. Although it may take more time to get to your destination driving 60mph rather than 75mph, you will use 24% less gas (www.eia.doe.gov). Replacing a power-hungry, single-speed pool pump with a slower, more efficient variable-speed pump can have a major impact on your monthly utility expense.
All of the local utility providers offer generous rebates for upgrading to a variable speed pool pump in 2011. Below is a savings example provided by Southern California Edison:
A Mediterranean expert can determine which pump is correct for the size of your pool, spa, waterfall, or outdoor water display, and can provide you a cost savings analysis for your usage.
