Babcock Ranch is known as the first Solar City for its centralized solar electricity energy source. But did you know that it’s shaping up to be a hotbed for solar pool heating, too?

With so many pools being installed, residents are looking for the ideal way to provide needed heat to enjoy their purchase. Natural gas is piped into homes in the community, but that is the most expensive way to heat a pool aside from liquid propane. While it is fast, gas is the least environmentally friendly method to heat a pool. We don’t understand why so many pools are going in with gas as the primary heating method.
Solar is the Answer
The good news is that solar pool heating panels work great with gas. You get the best of both worlds – a pool that is always warmed by the sun, every day of the year, without planning ahead, and at no additional operating cost. Gas allows you to quickly heat spas, top off heat in pools, and deal with those times when you need a last minute boost in your pool temperature.
So Babcock Ranch is heating up, literally and figuratively. We are installing solar pool heaters to satisfy the demands of clients who are looking for a great Florida outdoor lifestyle while keeping costs down and being good stewards of the environment. There is no better way to heat your swimming pool, so whether you are installing a new pool or want to retrofit one that was recently built, we are ready to help!
