If you’re still using a standard single-speed pump for your pool, it's time to make a change that will benefit both the environment and your wallet.  According to BGE an Energy Star® certified variable speed pump uses 70% less energy and can save $300.00 on your electric bill. Since May 11th, 2015 Buddy's has helped Maryland residents earn a $400.00 pool pump rebate just for making the switch. 

In a separate study conducted by the California Energy Commission, when properly sized and adjusted, a variable speed pump can save as much as 90% in energy costs over a single speed pump.  In addition to the energy savings, variable speed pumps offer other advantages as well.  They typically run much quieter and cooler than a single speed pump and the water flow can be adjusted, which can actually eliminate the need for multiple pumps in some pool system configurations. So even if your existing pump is running fine, now is a great time to consider an upgrade.

If you would like to get an idea of the exact savings for your own pool, stop into our store and ask to for a live demonstration.  We have a full working display in our retail store with real-time electrical monitoring where you can enter information about your existing pool to see exactly how much you can expect to save.   

As an approved participating BGE contractor, a Buddy’s Pool Service technician can make a proper recommendation on the most appropriate Energy Star certified variable speed pump for your pool.  Then by having Buddy’s perform the professional installation you will qualify for the $400.00 BGE rebate and the manufacturer’s full product warranty.  Once your new variable speed pump is installed you can expect to save hundreds of dollars per season in utility costs year after year. The $400.00 rebate will only be available for a limited time, so be sure to act soon.
