Variable speed pump rebates are over... But don’t worry, some utility companies are extending their offer time frame for these energy efficient pumps into 2015, but not all. If you don’t have a variable speed pump yet, this is the year to get one. Most utility companies will pay you to get one too, some up to $600!
Heat Pumps | Coolers
Heat Pumps are a great way to save some serious money on your utility bills and still heat your pool effectively. Today an emerging method of heating pools is the swimming pool heat pump. A heat pumps efficiency is dependent on the outside temperature and since pools are usually used during warm and mild weather, heat pumps are a very efficient method of heating pools. Heat pumps do not generate heat, they simply capture it and move it from one place to another. The best way to size a heat pump is to multiply the surface area (avg Length x avg Width) by the desired tempurature rise multiplied by 12.
Glacier Pool Coolers offer a very efficient way to cool water without refrigeration. This type of cooling is different than using a heat pumps with the cooling option. Heat pumps that both heat and cool use refrigerant to chill the water.
