How Energy Efficient is My Baton Rouge Pool.jpgAre you building or renovating an inground pool in Baton Rouge? Follow these 4 energy efficiency tips to reduce utility costs, cut down on energy/water waste, and enjoy possible tax incentives/rebates with your new or remodeled pool!

Invest in a solar cover to reduce water-heating costs during the winter

When the air starts to get a little cooler, you still want to keep your pool at comfortable temperature. But the idea of heating your entire pool makes your wallet hurt. By investing in a solar cover, you can reduce evaporation and the effect of wind chill on your pool’s temperature, as well as actually heat your pool with the sun’s rays.

Install LED lighting in your Baton Rouge in-ground pool

LED lights are 80% more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs and last three times as long. Talk about a no-brainer! 

Outfit your Baton Rouge pool with an energy efficient pump system

Variable-drive pool pumps can save up to 90% more energy than a traditional pool pump. With programmable settings, built-in diagnostics, and a dramatically quiet operation, the Pentair IntelliFlo system is ENERGY STAR® certified and fully compatible with most other pool control systems.

Maintain your in-ground pool regularly to sustain efficiency

Regular comprehensive pool maintenance can prevent major energy leaks and sustain the efficiency of your pool’s pump and filtration systems.  As Certified Pool Operators™, the service and maintenance technicians at Lucas Firmin Pools will keep your pool in tip-top shape all year long, so you don’t have to spend your free time testing water balance, cleaning filters, and waging war against pollen.
