If you're going to heat the pool, do so by means of a high-efficiency heater. According to the DOE, you can save $315 for every $1,000 you spend annually to heat your pool by switching from a 65% efficiency gas heater to one with 95% efficiency (the Jandy Hi-E2 pool heater, pictured here, is the highest-efficiency gas heater available). For even greater energy savings, consider a heat pump (particularly if you live in a warm climate) or solar hot water panels.
