Nothing says “summer” like spending the day playing in the swimming pool (using lots of sunscreen, naturally).

But don’t slip into your swimsuit just yet.

You may be taking a summer break, but your pool pump is working harder than ever, increasing your energy usage during one of the biggest energy seasons (just ask your HVAC).

Turns out, upgrading to an ENERGY STAR® certified pool pump is a great way to save, especially with $400 in rebates from us!

Why energy-efficient pool pumps beat conventional

Conventional pool pumps are inflexible, inefficient, and expensive because they deliver high flow all the time, whether they’re cleaning or filtering.

In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, your pool pump could be your home’s second largest energy user (after your HVAC), costing you as much as $260 in extra energy every year!

Unlike conventional models, ENERGY STAR certified pool pumps save energy because they can run at different speeds and can be programmed to match the pool operation with its appropriate pool pump speed. By reducing the pump speed by one-half, the pump uses just one-eighth as much energy!

Plus, they use more efficient motors, more advanced hydraulic designs, are much quieter, and can help your pool’s filtration system last longer.

How much can you save?

ENERGY STAR certified pool pumps can pay for themselves in less than two years. But the savings don’t stop there!

  • Certified in-ground pool pumps use 18% less energy than conventional pool pumps, and can save you $290 in energy costs over the lifetime of the product.
  • Certified above-ground pool pumps use 11% less energy and can save you $80 in energy costs over the lifetime of the product.

Overall, ENERGY STAR certified pool pumps reduce energy use, lower utility costs, run more quietly, and extend the lifespan of your pool’s filtration system.
