5 Cost-Effective Ways to Heat Your Swimming Pool

5 Cost-Effective Ways to Heat Your Swimming Pool | Residential, Commercial, Industrial Plumbing Services

Since we’re right smack in the middle of summer, we thought homeowners throughout the Bay Area might be interested in the most cost-effective ways to heat their swimming pools. At Benicia Plumbing, we don't work on peoples' swimming pools, but if we can help you to save energy in any way, we're there to help. So, here are 5 cost-effective and simple ways to conserve energy while keeping your pool at the temperature you desire. 

Having a swimming pool in your backyard can be a wonderful thing. You can have pool parties. The kids can be entertained for the entire summer. You can get a nice tan. You can use the pool for exercise. And, you can use it to simply relax when you’re not working. Sometimes, the family dog loves it too! But...heating it can get expensive.

So, here are the 5 best ways to reduce the costs of heating your pool:

  1. Using a pool cover
  2. Using a high-efficiency heater
  3. Controlling the water’s temperature
  4. Using a smaller pump
  5. Using the pump less frequently

You’ve probably already noticed that heating a swimming pool can increase your heating bills significantly. Not only that, but it uses a lot of energy too. If you’re serious about reducing energy and heating costs associated with heating your pool, we recommend: 1) installing a solar or an energy-efficient heater, 2) always using a pool cover when you’re not using the pool, and 3) managing the pool’s temperature.

According to energy.gov, “Covering a pool when it is not in use is the single most effective means of reducing pool heating costs.” So, if you don’t already have a pool cover, we recommend getting one as soon as possible.
