In the Arizona heat, a pool is the perfect oasis. The cost of having a pool? Sometimes, that can be another story. Pools can require a large amount of electricity to run, keep clean, and maintain proper temperature. Solar panels and other modifications can significantly decrease the cost of running a pool. Solar is a great energy solution in sunny Arizona, and going solar can make a splash when it comes to cooling down in your pool (and saving money) all summer long.
A 2-kw solar panel system can run a 1-hp pool and the pump for up to five hours a day, with no excess energy required. Typically, a rooftop solar panel system is larger than 2-kw – that means your solar panels should be able to run your pool with plenty of energy to meet other energy needs at your home or business, too. Solar is a great way to decrease your pool’s average operational costs, so you can boost your savings even more!
Looking for more pool energy solutions? Our variable speed pool pumpis the perfect addition to an Arizona pool. Instead of using the typical one-speed functionality, this product gives you the ability to slow down the pump at certain times so it uses less energy. This is helpful in the summer when the pump will be working a lot to adjust to vast temperature changes. Variable speed pool pumps can reduce your energy consumption by 2/3 of what a standard pool pump would use. Check out this video to learn more about this energy-saving option:
