There are many joys to owning a pool – especially for Phoenix residents – but spending more on your electric bill is certainly not one of them. The costs of running a motor, pump and lighting in your pool can add up, but there are steps that can be taken to make these components cost-effective. Poolman’s Phoenix pool services provide several repair options that will help you save money on your electric bill.

Variable-speed motors and pumps: The cost of running a motor and pool pump can be very expensive, especially if these parts are set to operate on a high single-speed setting. Arizona law mandates that any replacement of a pump or motor in a residential pool needs to have a variable-speed capability. Fortunately, this repair comes with the advantage of significantly bringing down your electric bill. Replacing your single-speed motor or pump with a variable-speed one could reduce your annual electricity spending by up to $1300.

LED lights: If your pool lights are old and flickering, you may want to consider replacing them with new LED lights. Not only are LED lightbulbs more cost-effective and durable than conventional incandescent and fluorescent ones, they are also a more environmentally friendly option, as recently substantiated by a June 2012 Pacific Northwest National Laboratory report. Plus, LED lights are available in a variety of colors, such as red, blue, green and amber, making them a very aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional white pool lights.

If you want to cut down on your electric bill by making one of these adjustments, look no further than Poolman. Our seasoned employees have the experience needed to make your pool the most energy-efficient one in the neighborhood. Give Poolman a call today.
