What are efficient ways to heat swimming pool water? Symbiont Service Corp. professionals answer 

There are many ways in which to heat the water in your swimming pool. The geothermal professionals from Symbiont Service Corp. regularly get asked, “what are efficient ways to heat swimming pool water?” One of the best ways is by using a heat pumps. This piece of equipment provides an energy-efficient way to keep the pool water warm. The way a pool water heat pump works is that it utilizes electricity to transfer heat from the area surrounding the pump aka the ambient air, through the device and then transfers it into the pool water. Rather than generating heat, as most other models do, the use of the ambient air to heat the pool water is a more energy efficient way to extend your pool swim season.

To maximize energy savings, you will want to work with your pool heating professional to make certain you are investing in the proper size equipment for your unique swimming pool.

What does proper sizing mean and what determines that?geothermal heating

  • What temperature do you want the pool water?
  • What is the average temperature of the coldest month of the year that you will use the pool?
  • How many degrees will the temperature need to rise in order to make the water swimmable?
  • How big is the pool?
  • What kind of landscaping surrounds it? Is it shaded? Open to wind? Secluded?

What are efficient ways to heat swimming pool water?

In addition to the water temperature you will want to talk with us about the energy efficiency rating of the pump you’re looking to invest in. Energy efficiency is measured through COP — coefficient performance. A technician from Symbiont Service will walk you through the process. We recommend using an AquaCal swimming pool heat pump. It it one of the most durable and cost-efficient model on the market. These heat pumps are both environmentally-friendly and significantly less expensive to operate than using a gas or electric heating unit for your pool water.

An AquaCal heat pump provides temperature flexibility and control because it has a programmable thermostat.

Do you want to extend the months of use that you can enjoy in your family swimming pool in Florida? If so, give us a call and let’s talk about the installation of a heat pump.

Should I Get A High Efficiency Air Conditioning System

Should I Get A High Efficiency Air Conditioning System

Homeowners and business owners in Florida will ask themselves, “Should I get a high efficiency air conditioning system?” when they are shopping for a new build or a replacement unit for their home or business. At Symbiont Service Corp, we urge our customers to “take a long-term approach” when making a decision.

Here are a few things to consider:

  1.  An air conditioner may cost less to install, but it doesn’t mean you’ll save money in the long run, in fact, the opposite is quite often true.
  2. The air conditioner chosen impacts electric bills for decades.
  3. Check the energy efficiency of various models as they are not all created equally.

Most high high efficiency air conditioning systems have a higher price point but the return on your investment in the long run of operating the unit during a sultry Florida summer needs to be considered. Ask the retailer for a breakdown and comparison on the initial cost of the unit versus the overall long-term use operating costs.
