Experience Gulfport backyard entertaining this Fall with a heated swimming pool!
If you’re finding yourself missing your pool during the winter months, you may want to consider investing in heating. While heated pools are usually considered extremely costly, there are things homeowners can do to reduce the costs and keep their heat all winter long.
Solar Power Your Pool
Solar power is just as effective during the winter, if not more so. You can offset the costs of your heated pool by installing a solar generator, and you can also invest in solar pool covers. Solar pool covers aren’t true solar batteries, but they do absorb the heat from the sun and transfer it into the pool water. Solar pool covers are better used during mild weather, while solar panels can be used anywhere.
Heat Your Pool Effectively
Intelligent heating mechanisms can be used to heat the pool only as much as is required. The pool can be kept just above freezing at all times and only be brought up to swimmable temperatures when it is actually in use, which saves a homeowner considerable amounts of money.
Consider a Smaller Pool
If the costs of heating your large pool are too prohibitive, you may want to consider installing a smaller heated pool next to it, a spa or a hot tub. This can give you the best of both worlds at a far lower price. Small features such as spas and hot tubs increase property values and also give you a wonderful place to relax with your friends or your partner.
The winter months don’t have to be cold and uncomfortable. There are many ways to tackle the winter doldrums for those that are prepared to explore alternative methods of heating and energy. If you’re interested in installing a heated water feature in your home, you can consult a professional about your options.
