There is nothing quite like swimming in a warm pool in autumn, when the summer heat has faded. But that comes at a price. The average cost to heat a pool can range anywhere from $300 to $1,000 per month, depending on the size of the pool. Don’t stress though, there are plenty of ways to heat your pool for a lot less. Here are the seven cheapest ways to heat your pool this off-season.One of the most cost-effective methods for retaining heat in a swimming pool is a solar cover. The root cause of heat loss in a pool is evaporation. Heat rises, so the warm water rises to the top of the pool, and then evaporates into the air. This occurs most during the day, when the pool is exposed to the sun. A solar cover acts as a protective lid and is designed to absorb solar heat and reduce evaporation. The initial purchase rate can vary depending on the size of the pool, but the initial cost should not come anywhere near breaking the bank. (Source:

Solar sun rings work in a similar way to solar covers. It really is personal preference whether you want to have one full cover to place on top of the entire pool, or multiple smaller rings that can be moved around. Just like solar covers, sun rings prevent evaporation and warm the pool through solar heat. Solar rings can be moved around on top of the pool. Additionally, it is easier to use solar rings to cover a pool rather than find a solar cover that fits the pool perfectly. (Source: paylesspower.com)
