One of the questions we get a lot at Las Vegas Retreats is, what about heating the pool? Is it realistic in the winter and do I really need it in the summer? The easy answer is that it depends on how much you want to use the pool, but there really are a couple more things to consider. Especially when it comes to seasonal considerations.
In the winter, most of our homes will offer pool heat as an option. Though it does get cold in Las Vegas, sometimes very cold, we do not really get too much in the way of inclement weather. Snow here is rare, for example. Also, we are aware that many visitors come from parts of the world where it is always cold, so having a warm pool is always an attractive option.
We recommend pool heat in all months, except in possibly July and August when even the night times in Vegas are above 90 degrees. Then the pools will be nice and toasty without any help. At other times though, the evaporation rate in super dry Las Vegas will keep them a little chilly and in need of help.
