While it’s not usually something homeowners think too hard about when planning a pool or spa addition to their backyard, normal operations of a pool can add unexpected energy costs…while having a negative effect on the environment. If you’re not careful about the equipment you install, this impact can be significant. That’s not to say there hasn’t been a number of improvements made in pool pad technology over recent years to increase the efficiency of those units; it’s that these devices all work independently of one another, oddly enough even when sourced from the same vendor.
