Swimming pools and hot tubs use a great deal of energy, resulting in higher electric bills. Pool pumps, for example, can use more energy and cost more to run than all your home appliances combined.
Connexus Energy suggests these energy-saving practices for home hot tubs and swimming pools.
Set the hot tub thermostat between 100°F and 102°F, as recommended by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Most hot tubs have a factory setting of 104°F.
Create a windbreak with privacy panels, shrubs, or fencing to prevent the wind from cooling your water.
