Home Living : August 23rd 2011
HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, August 23, 2011 7 HOMELIVING to energy efficiency The fibreglass pool from Capital Country Pools has a number of energy and environmentally-efficient features. Heat pumps use electricity to capture heat and move it from one place to another. They don't generate heat, they gather heat from the surrounding air by drawing it through the unit. This is then transferred to the refrigerant inside pipes, where the temperature is increased by compressing the refrigerant. That heat is then transferred to the pool water contained in adjacent piping. Gas heating This is a fast and efficient way to heat your pool to a comfortable temperature at any time. All gas heaters are fitted with thermostatic controls, ranging from simple, mechanical thermostats to sophisticated, digital controls with temperature and status readout. Pool pump costs Electricity consumed by the pump contributes significantly to the operating costs. Motors use many times their initial cost in electricity consumption over their life and often consume several times their cost in the first year alone. But by using properly sized energy-efficient pumps and motors, you can significantly lower the electrical consumption portion of pool operating costs by an hour or more. Timers You can install a timer to control the pump's cycling. If debris is a problem, use a timer that can activate the pump for several short periods each day. Filter during off-peak times You can help everyone by filtering your pool during off-peak hours. Avoid operating your pool filter between the hours of noon and 6pm. This will help reduce the demand for electricity, conserve natural resources and save money.
