You may love your Florida pool but you often don’t think about the energy consumption — and bills — that are a part of pool ownership. You can have a more sustainable pool and reduce your energy costs for the pool by following these five tips.
- Install a Solar Pool Heater
A cool pool is a refreshing treat during a steamy Florida summer, spring, or autumn day. In winter, low temperatures reach the 50s in the Tampa Bay region, so a pool heater helps you enjoy comfortable swimming year-round. However, a gas-fueled or electric-powered pool heater is not the most sustainable way to achieve a cozy pool temperature when the temperatures drop in February.
If you've been thinking of installing or replacing a pool heater, a solar heater is an excellent choice for performance and sustainability. Solar heaters are easy to install in both pools that have never been heated and pools that have existing heaters.
