Heating & Heat Loss
Reduce heat loss by using a pool cover. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, savings of 50% – 70% are possible.
Fencing, hedges, landscaping, and cabanas that shelter your pool from prevailing winds will further reduce heat loss.
If your pool heater is more than five years old, chances are a new high efficiency gas heater could quickly pay for itself in utility bill savings.
A pool heat pump can save up to 80% in energy usage compared to a gas heater. Check with your pool professional to see if a heat pump is appropriate for your region.
If you use your pool only on weekends, reduce your heater or heat pump thermostats settings by eight to ten degrees during the week.
When leaving for vacation for more than a week, turn off the pool heater or heat pump, including the pilot light. Please use caution in freezing conditions.
According to the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals and the American Red Cross, the most healthful swimming temperature is 78 degrees. Reducing your heater or heat pump thermostat to maintain a 78 degree or lower temperature will also help conserve energy.
Install a timer or a control system to automate the hours of operation.
When reopening your pool, make sure your heater or heat pump is working properly.
