Do I Need a Heater for My Pool in Trinity, Florida?

Our summers here in the Tampa Bay area are long and hot.  For about 6 months every year, daytime temperatures are in the 90s (actually much hotter in the sun) and nighttime temperatures are in the upper 70s . The water temperature of swimming pools at this time is very comfortable without a heater, so do you really need a heater for your swimming pool in Trinity, Florida?

A heated pool may be useful for many reasons:
First, if your pool is in an area shaded by your house, trees or other obstructions, it may take an extra month or more in Spring to reach a comfortable temperature.
Second, a heated pool in Trinity may be helpful because the fall and spring months have high temperatures in the 80s with low temperatures that fall into the 60s or even 50s at night. The low overnight temperatures can cool down the pool water quite a bit.
At Grand Vista Pools, we want you to be completely satisfied with your pool, but we also don’t want you to pay for extra items you may not need. This is why we recommend waiting on installing an electric, gas or solar pool heater during pool construction. We recommend you take a full season to observe when and how you use your pool. If a heater makes sense for your family, we can always come back and install it later. The cost to install a pool heater later is about the same as to install it during the pool construction.
A pool heating system can increase your swimming season by 4-6 weeks in the spring and another 4-6 weeks in the fall, providing up to 12 additional weeks of swimming each year.  However, during the winter (December through February) when temperatures average 70s during the day and 50s at night, many people find it to be too cold to swim, even with a heated pool in Florida
Trinity Swimming Pool Cooling Systems?
On the other hand, some Trinity swimming pools - especially those without screen enclosures and those that receive a lot of direct sunlight  - can actually become too warm. For those pools, there are cooling system that can be installed to cool down your pool to a more refreshing temperature.
Whether a pool heating system (or cooling system) make sense for your swimming pool depends a lot on where your pool is located and your personal preferences. This is why at Grand Vista Pools, we meet with our customers to discuss all the details before we get started.
