A somewhat related question: I am in Peco's Philly area, with electri
rates near 12c/kwh, I believe. However I have and use the Rate time
rate for all evening uses. I pay double during peak for all uses
It is almost better as a disincentive to use elec than any rea
savings, in my opinion
My question is Can someone help me figure out how much it costs t
heat up the (cringe) spa from 70 degrees F to 95' ? This would o
course be only at the off peak rate. Just take it as 500 gals x 2.
pounds per gal. 1100 lbs.
Part 2 would be what does it cost to run the 11.5 hp pump system. I
usually gets run 1 hour, sometimes only 1x/ week. The heatup is onl
needed in the real winter months, otherwise it holds the heat ver
well. I hope to an an enclosure to reduce this loss. We don't use i
I'll do the math If I can find the formulas or factors. Thanks M
