Variable Speed Pool Pumps:
How Do Variable Speed Pool Pumps Save Energy?
Conventional pool pumps use the same high pump speed regardless of the task assigned even though filtration, the number one task of a pool pump, requires one-half the speed (using one-eighth the power) of pool vacuuming. Variable speed pool pumps deliver the right speed for different tasks, using much less energy.

Did you know that heating and cooling represents about 50 percent of your home's energy use?!
Follow these easy tips to optimize your heating and cooling equipment:
Ducts that move air to-and-from a forced air furnace, central air conditioner, or heat pumps are sources for air leakage. Have a HVAC professional test your ducts for leaks; sealing and insulating ducts can improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system by as much as 20 percent — and sometimes much more!
When it comes time to replace your HVAC equipment, SEER matters. SEER, which stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, is the measurement of your air conditioning system’s cooling efficiency. The higher the SEER rating, the more energy efficient the system. The current minimum standard for an air conditioner in Texas is 14.5 SEER.
