Summer is almost here and with it comes the use of swimming pools and ceiling fans to try and keep cool.
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is offering tips to save energy this summer:
· Upgrade. Upgrade. Upgrade. If you own a pool, you know it consumes a lot of energy. If you’re using a standard single-speed pool pump to circulate clean, clear water, you can cut your energy use in half by upgrading to an energy-efficient, two-speed or variable-speed pump. Two-speed and variable-speed pumps are also more durable and offer better performance and water filtration.
