Even if you live where it is as warm and sunny as Florida, you may find that you still need a pool heater to keep your swimming pool at a comfortable temperature.

Choosing the Right Pool Heater

Yes, even pools in Florida get cold and you may find that you need to heat your pool so you can enjoy it all the time. If your pool is screened in, you may find that even in the middle of summer your pool may not get enough heat from the sun alone to keep the water temperature warm enough to enjoy it. 

If you are looking to replace the pool heater that came with your pool, you will find there are quite a few efficient heaters for swimming pools. (You may also find that the one that came with your swimming pool isn’t among them). If you find you are paying an arm and a leg for keeping your pool warm then it may be time for a pool heater upgrade. The investment you make with a new pool heater may cut your expenses in half and could certainly pay for itself in no time at all.

There are also solar swimming pool heaters you may want to take a look at. These types of swimming pool heaters collect power from the sun into cells. That power is then converted to energy that is used to heat your pool. If there isn’t enough energy collected to heat it for the entire day then the backup source of electricity will take over when it runs out. The next day the solar energy will be collected once again.

You can further reduce the amount of energy required to heat the swimming pool by keeping it covered when not in use. This will allow it to maintain the heat that it has better than when it is just being mixed with the cool night air.  The downside is it can be time-consuming to place a cover on the swimming pool though. Investing in an electric tarp is very fast and effective. They are made for all shapes and sizes of swimming pools as well.

You do need to make sure the swimming pool heater you choose is sufficient for the size of your swimming pool. Don’t try to save money by installing one that is too small for the size of it. In the long run, you will end up paying out more and furthermore, you won’t enjoy your swimming pool as much as you should be.

You may need professional to help you find the right pool heater to invest in. With solar heaters, the more panels they have the more energy they can collect at one time. You should strive to operate only on solar power for the heat instead of going back and forth between it and the electricity.

If you are shopping around for a swimming pool right now, the quality of the pool heater is something to really consider. Too many consumers don’t realize how important it really is until they already have the swimming pool installed. By knowing this is a feature you need to evaluate you can be sure you get the best possible overall swimming pool and equipment you can for the money you invest in them.

With a great pool heating system, you will be able to enjoy your Tampa Bay swimming pool all year round. You also won’t be afraid to open your electricity bill because of it!
