I've read this forum for some help on other issues so I'd like the input on this on.
I currently have an old Emerson 1081 pump, 2HP pump. Not sure how old it is but it's at least from 2007 and most likely earlier. I've been looking into getting something that is more energy efficient but am torn on what to get. I was considering a variable speed pump when I came across people talking about 2 speed pumps having a somewhat similar outcome at a lower price. My question is, should I go for the variable speed, since NV Power is currently giving a $250 rebate or just go for the 2 speed? I figure both should give me a good amount of savings over what I currently have but not sure which is better. Power rates here are $.124/kWh.
Thanks for any input
P.S.I am unsure of how long the rebate will last and I'm not quite ready at this moment to pull the trigger on replacing the pump.
I'd like to install this myself. I'm somewhat mechanically inclined and saw a video that didn't look too difficult. Should I attempt this or break don and pay someone to do it?
