How to Make Your Pool More Eco-Friendly

With growing awareness about climate change and the need for sustainable living, making eco-friendly choices for your home, including your swimming pool, has never been more important. Pools are fantastic for relaxation and exercise, but they can also consume a lot of energy. Here’s how you can make your pool more environmentally friendly with EvoHeat heat pumps and simple solutions like pool covers.

1. Upgrade to an Energy-Efficient Heat Pump

Traditional pool heating methods, such as gas and electric heaters, are not only expensive to run but also have a significant environmental impact. Switching to an energy-efficient heat pump is a game-changer for eco-conscious pool owners.

Why Choose EvoHeat Heat Pumps?

  • Highly Efficient: EvoHeat heat pumps use advanced technology to transfer heat, making them much more efficient than traditional heaters. They use up to 80% less energy than electric heaters and are significantly cheaper to run than gas heaters.
  • Lower Carbon Footprint: By consuming less energy, EvoHeat heat pumps reduce greenhouse gas emissions, helping you shrink your carbon footprint.
  • Cost-Effective: Although the initial investment might be higher than traditional heaters, the energy savings over time make heat pumps a cost-effective choice. They can save you up to 70% on your heating costs annually.

Eco Tip: Pairing your EvoHeat heat pump with solar panels can further reduce energy consumption. Solar energy can be used to power the heat pump, potentially decreasing your pool heating costs to next-to-nothing!

2. Use a Pool Cover to Save Energy and Water

A good-quality pool cover is essential for maintaining pool temperature and reducing energy use. It helps retain heat, minimises evaporation, and reduces the need for frequent water refills and chemical treatments, making it a smart choice for eco-friendly pool management.

Energy Savings:

  • Heat Retention: Pool covers help retain the heat in your pool, reducing the amount of energy needed to maintain a comfortable temperature. This is especially beneficial at night or during cooler weather.
  • Reduced Evaporation: Covers significantly reduce water evaporation, which is a major source of heat loss in pools. Less evaporation means you’ll need to heat your pool less frequently, saving energy.

Water Conservation:

  • Reduced Refill Needs: By minimising evaporation, pool covers reduce the need for frequent refilling, conserving water and the energy used to heat that water.
  • Lower Chemical Use: Keeping the pool covered reduces debris and contaminants, which means you’ll need fewer chemicals to keep the water clean and balanced

3. Install Energy-Efficient Pool Pumps and Filters

Traditional pool pumps can be one of the biggest energy consumers in a home. Upgrading to an energy-efficient variable-speed pump can cut energy use by up to 90%. These pumps allow you to adjust the flow rate, using less energy when full power is not needed.

Advantages of Energy-Efficient Pumps:

  • Lower Energy Consumption: These pumps use less electricity than single-speed models.
  • Longer Lifespan: Variable-speed pumps have a longer operational life due to less wear and tear.
  • Quieter Operation: They operate more quietly, reducing noise pollution.

Pairing an energy-efficient pump with a high-efficiency filter can further reduce energy use. Filters that require less frequent cleaning save water and reduce the energy needed for backwashing.
