Use Your Heated Pool Year Round

If you live in a warm location, you may think that you don’t need a heated pool. 

However, you would be surprised at how in even warmer climates that your overall pool temperature can dip below comfortable temperatures in the cool months.

Finding the perfect temperature in your pool is a careful balancing act. 

On one hand, you don’t want your pool water to be so warm that it isn’t refreshing. On the other hand, you don’t want it to be so cold that it takes forever to “get used” to the water and you’re left shivering and uncomfortable after your swim!

Getting a heated pool will give you the control you need to make sure the water is perfect— every time. 

In addition, a pool is no small investment! 

You will want to get the most bang out of your buck if you are installing a pool in your home for everyday use. 

Making sure the temperature is perfect is a way to ensure that your pool can be used all year round and that you will get your money’s worth out of your investment. 

Not only will you be able to use your pool year-round— you will be able to use it any time of the day. 

Many people with unheated pools hesitate to take a swim in the early mornings, rainy days, etc. They may have to wait for the pool to “heat up” naturally from the sun by a couple of degrees. 

With a heated pool, you can take a swim whenever you feel like it! 

If you like to swim in the early mornings before work, late at night, or even on rainy days, swimming will be an option for you. 

A Heated Pool Increases Your Home Value

Another primary reason to get a heated pool is that it will add value to your home. 

Adding a pool is already one way to increase the value, and a heated pool will maximize that increase. 

In the colder months, the pool will stay perfectly heated and actually prevent winter damages to the home, which is the reason for this value increase. 

A Heated Pool Improves Blood Circulation and Breathing

Swimming in a heated pool actually has health benefits that a cold pool can’t offer!

When you swim in warm water, your blood actually has improved circulation. When you are cold, your blood moves to your internal organs and you need to work to warm your body up. 

When you are warm, your blood can flow freely and actually travels to the skin. 

This is also a great way to improve your breathing. 

Swimming in cold water can actually cause unwanted respiratory responses that can be damaging to you. If the water is too cold, it can actually shock your system and cause you to have difficulty breathing. 

This is never a worry when the water is heated! 

If you think about it, when you are cold your body tightens up and you must work extremely hard to get to a comfortable temperature. While this isn’t necessarily bad, it isn’t exactly ideal for a casual dip at your home. 

Warm water allows your body to relax and open up so that you get the full benefits of a swimming pool even in the coldest of months. 

Safety for the Whole Family

Swimming in a cold pool can actually leave young children and the elderly susceptible to unwanted colds. 

An easy way to avoid this (and maximize your swimming experience!) is to install a heated pool at your home. 

This way, it is safe to use and enjoyable for anyone you want to invite over!
