Swimming pools and spas are great for cooling off on a summer’s day. Yet, they can also consume huge amounts of energy and water.
According to the Australian Government’s Department of Industry, for a typical home, maintaining an in-ground pool can account for up to 30 percent of a household’s energy bills. A pool pump can be the largest user of electricity in a home—sometimes using more energy than your washing machine, clothes dryer and dishwasher combined!
At CSA Services, we want to help you transform the way you create and use energy. Our expert energy management helps homeowners, businesses and communities to reduce energy costs, increase property values and lock-in savings for years to come.
Be efficient and save money
The way you use and maintain your pool and spa can have a great impact on your energy bill.
We suggest you:
Reduce energy, water and chemical use during winter months
In winter, you can afford to run your pool pump less and use fewer chemicals but make sure you get advice from your local pool shop.
Keep an eye on the chemicals
You can save water and energy by ensuring you use the correct chemicals for your pool, saving you from having to empty and reheat your pool or spa. Remember to seek advice from your local pool shop.
Minimise evaporation and heating requirements
Reducing evaporation and heat loss by using smart design will save you money. Make sure your pool is located to gain heat during colder months if the side is windy use windbreaks such as fences and vegetation to reduce heat loss.
Invest in a pool or spa cover
Investing in a pool or spa cover reduces evaporation and heat loss and can save thousands of litres of water a year. Make sure your
spa is well insulated and in good condition to prevent heat loss and check your pool and spa regularly for cracks and leaks!
Save money with solar
You should consider installing solar to power your pool pump and save money and energy. You can also consider solar heating your pool.
