In 2001 Stefan de Vrij Netherland Jersey , data collected by the U.S. Energy Information Administration indicated that heaters used in hot tubs, spas, and pools accounted for approximately 2,300 kWh of electrical use per household annually. That added up to a combined 7.6 billion kWh in the approximately 3.3 million households where the units were present. At the current national average cost of electricity ($.12 per kWh), that's about $276 per year, per household. Since it's safe to assume that the number of hot tubs Ron Vlaar Netherland Jersey , spas, and pools in the country has increased over the last decade, that's a staggering amount of dollars and power going toward heating water.

Solar pool heaters, which are easily priced competitive with gas and heat pump units, can substantially reduce energy use in this area while lowering power bills and offering fewer maintenance issues. Unlike the photovoltaic cells with which most consumers are familiar, solar pool heaters use a thermal solar configuration. Basically Robin van Persie Netherland Jersey , water from the pool passes through a filter to remove debris before circulating through a solar collector where heating occurs. A pump circulates the water, which is diverted back to the pool itself with a manual or automatic flow-control valve. The most sophisticated units include temperature sensing devices that only circulate the water when heating to maintain a pre-determined temperature is required.

These solar systems come in either glazed or unglazed models. Unglazed units work best in regions where the temperature stays above freezing. They consist of heavy-duty rubber or plastic tubing treated with chemicals to withstand ultraviolet light. Glazed systems are protected by an iron-tempered glass covering and are made of copper tubing mounted on an aluminum plate. Equipped with heat exchangers and transfer fluids, these systems capture heat more efficiently during cold weather, but can also be used year round in most climates. They are more expensive, but can also be adapted for domestic water heating. (Note that both types of systems should include freeze protection in given regions.)

Estimated cost of the components and their installation is $3,000 to $4 Riechedly Bazoer Netherland Jersey ,000 with an expected payback on the investment in 1.5 to 7 years depending on location and annual electrical rates. The systems are largely maintenance free. Washing to maximize heat penetration is recommended and homeowners should consider the caveat that any pump or pipe can become clogged by debris if the system's filter is breached.

Homeowners interested in solar pool heaters should evaluate their site to ensure that a collector can be placed at the correct angle relative to their longitude and latitude to receive optimum sun. Most likely working in concert with a professional, determine how large the collector should be and investigate relevant local building codes and homeowner's association covenants before proceeding. The estimated operational life for a solar pool heater is 10 to 20 years, offering an excellent long-term return on the investment in both material costs and annual energy savings.

Car Wraps & The Subject Of Marketing For L&P July 13, 2014 | Author: Paula Hess | Posted in Marketing

Marketing campaigns can be some of the most effective that can be imagined, some of them able to stand out more than others. Those who work with vehicle and car wraps can tell you that advertising methods like said wraps are utilized for certain reasons. They have been around for a while, so there’s a level of reliability to take into account. With that said Quincy Promes Netherland Jersey , it seems like the latest campaign done by L&P is one that can only be described as a bold move in the way of advertising.

According to an article on PSKF, the soft drink company known as L&P decided to make an ad campaign at the tail end of summer in New Zealand. The way that this was done is actually very creative, as the ad actually engaged people passing by with tangible results. More specifically, individuals could actually pull flip-flops and towels as they walked by. To say that this is a different take on marketing would be an understatement but it is a take that I’d like to see emulated more often.

It seems like freebies are the best items to put into place for the sake of earning consumer trust early on. Keep in mind that the freebies in question do not exactly have to be ones that are costly; they simply have to be of some kind of worth in order to stand out. For this reason, the idea of free towel and flip-flop distribution by L&P makes sense. It displays a great level of generosity on the company’s part but I also feel like it shows initiative on the company in question to appeal to the masses.

Manufacturers of car wraps will be able to tell you that the idea of appealing to a wide group of people can present something of a challenge. Colors and designs alike have to be utilized and they have to be done in ways that make sense. Even then there is an element of challenge to consider but it seems like L&P was able to come up with something so unique that they were able to overcome typical obstacles in marketing. For this reason, advertising authorities the likes of JMR Graphics should take notice.

As New Zealand slowly finds itself inching from the summer months Patrick van Aanholt Netherland Jersey , it’s clear that companies will take advantage of that. L&P is no exception to the rule, as this particular report showcased. It is clear that some ads are never going to be able to appeal to everyone, which is understandable given that not every company is going to.
