So, what's comfortable to you? Heating units are rated by units of measurement called BTU's. One BTU is capable of raising the temperature of one pound of water by one degree. So the larger your pool, the greater the required output in BTU's per hour. Most people find a pool water temperature between 78 and 82 degrees ideal, but you may like it cooler or warmer. That's where your Pinch A Penny expert comes in. Talk to him or her about your personal preferences, home design, and pool size and style for expert help in determining the proper heating system for you, starting with a free in-home pool heating analysis.

Swimming Pool Solar Panels

Solar pool heaters: Sun power at work.

It's no surprise that the sun is a powerful source of heat. With a solar heating system, you can harness that power to keep your pool warmer and extend your swimming season. Naturally, a solar heating system is the most cost-effective pool heating system around because the power of the sun is free.

Once installed, a solar heating system works by drawing heat through a panel either on the roof or at a 45° angle near the pool. Tubing filled with pool water runs through the panel, which heats the water then returns it back to your pool. If properly installed with advice from Pinch A Penny heating experts, a solar heating system can be very easy to maintain.

And Pinch A Penny can also offer you solar blankets and pool covers in a huge variety for all pool sizes to retain the warmth in your pool water overnight or during cool periods.
