Energy Efficient Heaters

Pool heaters let you increase your pool water temperature, but the costs of doing so can add up quickly, but with an energy efficient heater, you get the same pool heating abilities at a fraction of the energy cost. Energy efficient pool heaters are affordable and easy to install. Keep your pool at the perfect temperature for family enjoyment even when the temperature drops below  swimming weather! Who wouldn’t love another few weeks (or with our crazy weather, even months) of water fun?!

Solar Pool Heaters

Using the sun’s rays, solar pool heaters bring your pool water to comfortable temperatures. Imagine! With just one initial investment, you can enjoy a heated pool anytime without paying the price on your energy bill! The perfect addition to any pool, solar pool heating can typically keep your pool’s water in the low to mid 80’s. Use your pool year round, or at least for a longer period than you are used to.

Solar Pool Covers

Another option is to use a solar pool cover. With a variety of options to fit any size pool, a solar pool cover will use the power of the sun to warm pool water during the day and trap in heat overnight. At zero energy cost and a minimal initial outlay, solar pool covers provide the most affordable way to extend your pool season. Simply keep the pool covered when not in use, and reap the benefits of a warmer pool when you want to swim!

Most Houston-area pool owners want to save money, conserve energy, and lower their carbon footprint. Using these cost effective pool heating methods, you can do this and enjoy a pool that is always at a comfortable and relaxing temperature.
