NVenergy is offering a discount for pool owners that replace their existing pool pump with a variable speed pump. Pool pumps are notorious for being energy hogs. It’s not unusual for older pumps to demand as much power as many large household appliances (i.e. refrigerator). The latest breakthrough technology allows the pool owner to drastically reduce energy usage from 30% – 90% and save hundreds of dollars per year. The Pentair IntelliFlo, is one such brand of variable pumps, that uses a magnet motor similar to those used by hybrid cars. These permanent magnet motors are fundamentally more energy efficient. Secondly, the variable speed capability allows the pool owner the ability to run the pump at different speeds based on the seasonal requirements.
Compared to a 2HP pump (standard) running between 6 and 12 hours per day at the national average of 15¢ per kilowatt hour in a 20,000 gallon pool, IntelliFlo VS-3050 will typically save between $621 and $1,356 per year!
