Those that decide to make that investment know what great family times can be had enjoying the beautiful Florida sun frolicking in their pool. Unfortunately, the pool is typically only enjoyed in the warm weather unless it is heated, which can be a huge cost if it is electric or gas heated.  By far, the most cost efficient option, is to heat your pool with solar energy and expand the use of the good times around your pool beyond just seasonal usage.
