Pool Heating

Get the Most From Your Pool

Living in Florida for many families includes an active outdoor lifestyle. If you’re fortunate enough to have a pool, the hot summers take on a new level of adventure. But it doesn’t have to end there.

Did you know that with either a solar pool heater or a heat pump, you can extend your pool-time well into the spring and fall seasons?

Solar Pool Heater

Solar pool heating systems operate by pumping pool water through solar panels, which absorb radiant heat from the sun and transfer it to the water in the panels, after which it is circulated back to your pool. With a solar pool heater, your family can experience 7 to 9 months of comfortable swimming rather than the typical 3 to 4 months in an unheated pool.

Heat Pump Pool Heater

Would you like to maintain a consistent pool temperature regardless of weather conditions? Electric heat pumps operate by extracting heat from the surrounding air and transferring it to your pool. Thanks to today’s advanced technology, the annual operating cost to heat the average pool to 85°F from April to October is approximately $350. Either on its own or combined with a solar pool system, a heat pump is an excellent option.

Pool Heating FAQs

Is an electric heat pump less expensive to operate than a gas heater?
Yes, on average, the electricity to run a swimming pool heat pump costs about one-third of the cost of propane gas, almost half the price of natural gas.
How does a swimming pool heat pump work?
A swimming pool heat pump works the same way your home’s air conditioning unit works to heat your home during the winter months. The only difference is that instead of absorbing heat from the outside air, passing through the refrigerant, and then transferring that heat into the indoor air, it transfers heat into the swimming pool.
How much of the year can we expect to swim if we don’t heat our pool?
A Jacksonville screened-pool will typically be at least 80°F or warmer for about three months, from mid-June to early September. Open pools are a bit warmer because the pool surface receives more direct solar energy, and may stay comfortable for an extra month.
Is there any operating cost to a solar pool heater?
No, a solar pool heating system operates using free available energy directly from the sun.
