Luckily in South Florida, we don’t need to worry too much about those chilly days where we can’t enjoy our pool, but for those that enjoy a year-round warm pool there are several heater options that may be a fit for you!
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, there are energy conscious ways to heat your swimming pool. The most popular way is an electric pool heater. Heat pumps are electric pool heaters that use electricity to collect heat and move it around to warm the water in your pool. You may pay a little more upfront for something like this, but the operating costs are usually lower than expected (especially in South Florida since you will not use this year round). If these heaters are well maintained, they can last you quite some time.
On the eco-friendly site of things, homeowners can heat up their swimming pool with a solar heating system! With this system, your pool is able to jump up a good 10 to 12 degrees in difference of water temperature. Naturally, when the sun goes down the heating system shuts off. However, the best part about this is that there is no continuous electric or energy bill to go along with this heating system. Clean energy from the sun can heat your pool very effectively.
Lastly, another option can be by simply purchasing a swimming pool cover which allows your swimming pool to store the heat that is already in there. Sometimes, homeowners may not want to deal with this due to the labor that goes into removing the cover. However, if you see this being an issue you will benefit by buying a cover that you can work with easily so that you will use it consistently.
