  • 2. South facing pools are generally warmer than pools that face in any other direction. South facing pools have the advantage of the sun from sunrise to sunset in all four seasons of the year. West facing pools have sun from noon to sunset, while east and north facing pools have the least sun.
  • 3. Pool heat is recommended from Oct 1- April 30th. If you are traveling during these months you may want to watch the weather forecast before your trip. If the weather is consistently below 70 degrees you may want to opt in for the pool heat. If you decide to opt in for the pool heat, have it turned on the day before you arrive. Your pool will be warmed to a daytime temperature of between 75 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit for your arrival. It takes the pool 24- 48 hours to heat up. All pool heat pumps are operated on a timer and do not operate at night time due to local bylaws. You will find that your pool is noticeably cooler at night. Be sure to use a pool blanket, if provided, to preserve the heat within the pool.
  • 4. Most vacation rental homes charge between $25-35* nightly for pool heat. Prices are generally determined by the size of the pool. Pool heat is most often electrically heated. Electric pool heaters don't operate efficiently below 55 degrees. If the air temperature in the morning is lower than 55 degrees - or if there is a wind chill, your pool pump will turn on, but it will not heat the pool. *Electricity costs are so high that owners barely break-even with the electricity and operating costs from the pool heat option.
  • 5. For us, having the pool heat during our winter month visits has been an absolute delight. We visited last March with our kids who were on spring break. After the first day, my son requested we turn on the pool heat. What a difference it made and we all looked forward to using the pool in the evenings when we returned home from the parks.
