Get a $400 rebate on an ENERGY STAR-certified pool pump.
Warm weather approaches, and swim season is just around the corner! But more pool time could mean higher energy usage as your pool pump works harder—potentially costing as much as $560 in energy every year. That is, if your pump isn’t ENERGY STAR-certified.
Conventional pool pumps are loud and inflexible—they deliver high flow all the time whether they’re tasked with cleaning or filtration. But ENERGY STAR-certified pool pumps use more efficient motors, more sophisticated hydraulic designs, and advanced variable speed technology to deliver the appropriate flow depending on the job. That means they use less energy, are quieter, and can extend the lifespan of your pool’s filtration system.
Wondering if an upgrade is worth it right now? Let’s take a closer look:
ENERGY STAR certified in-ground pool pumps use up to 65% less energy than a standard pool pump, while certified above-ground pumps use about 17% less energy. That means you could save up to $450 a year on your energy bill just by upgrading. Put another way—a certified pool pump will pay for itself with the energy savings alone in less than two years.
Reduce your out of pocket costs with help from PSO. PSO offers valuable rebates for pool pump upgrades when installed by a qualifying service provider.
How much savings? $400. Yes, that’s right: you can save $400 instantly just for upgrading to an energy-efficient pool pump.
But it’s not just the money that makes an upgrade worth it. Certified pool pumps help to protect the environment by using less energy.
Consider this: If every pool owner in the U.S. upgraded to an ENERGY STAR-certified pool pump, we’d collectively lower greenhouse gas emissions by 11 billion pounds! That’s the emissions equivalent of one million vehicles. In dollars, that equals $770 million each year in energy cost savings.
Not to mention, when you upgrade to energy-efficient products like certified pool pumps, you help lessen Oklahoma’s need for additional energy supply, which helps us keep the cost of electricity affordable for everybody.
How do I upgrade?
Simply contact a qualifying service provider. The service provider will help you find the right pool pump to maximize your savings and then schedule an installation. Your rebate is then applied against the service provider’s invoice, which means the savings are instant—no need to wait for a check in the mail. Pretty cool, right?
So what are you waiting for? Dive into savings and get ready for a great summer!
