Hayward Earns 2020 Energy Star Partner Award for Second Consecutive Year

For the second year running, Hayward Industries, Inc., a leading manufacturer and global brand of residential and commercial pool equipment was awarded the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Award by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The U.S. Department of Energy recently introduced a new metric, known as weighted energy factor, designed to calculate pool-pump energy efficiency in a more realistic way. According to tests, Hayward produces the most energy-efficient variable-speed pumps pool owners can buy, including models over 1 horsepower that achieve the highest WEF scores in the industry. Furthermore, all Hayward variable-speed pool pumps outperform ENERGY STAR requirements by an average of 44%, saving pool owners up to 90% on energy costs annually over single-speed pumps.

"Winning the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year award is always an honor, but with new pool-pump efficiency regulations on the horizon, it's more important than ever to lead by example," says Scott Petty, global product manager for pumps at Hayward.

While the new DOE regulations for dedicated purpose pool pumps won't take effect until July 2021, Hayward has been working hard to ensure that their pumps not only meet the new standards, but exceed them. To this end, they now offer the broadest range of DOE-compliant models in the industry, including the most single-speed options—a popular category of pumps that other brands may not offer after the regulatory changes take effect.

In addition to innovative pump technology, Hayward is also a vocal contributor to the energy efficiency conversation, launching their new Pool Solutions app, which highlights the advantages of ENERGY STAR certified pool pumps and helps pool professionals sell them. Hayward also increased their social media reach by 18% over the last year, furthering their efforts to promote ENERGY STAR certified pool pumps among industry professionals.

If energy-saving pumps are Hayward's star product category, automation is its best supporting actor. Hayward continues to expand and improve its Omni line of smart pool and spa automation, which helps pool owners save even more energy by enabling them to control their equipment from anywhere.

"I salute the 2020 ENERGY STAR award winners," says Anne Idsal, EPA principal deputy assistant administrator for air and radiation. "These leaders demonstrate how energy efficiency drives economic competitiveness in tandem with environmental protection."
