22 x May 17 – June 6, 2018 x Every Day Is Pool Day! Pool Heater Rentals Revolutionizes Heated Pools and Spas Pool homes are a staple in Florida. Whether someone calls Central Florida home or is vacationing here with family, the luxury of a pool and spa is an expected one. What can be unexpected; however, is the cost of installing, repairing or maintaining a heat pump for that perfect temperature. That is where Pool Heater Rentals comes in. A traditional heat pump can cost thousands of dollars in upfront fees and even more for maintenance and repairs. With Pool Heater Rentals, the costs dwindle to only a low monthly payment. “The concept of renting a pool heater is popular in Canada and Europe, but it’s still a revolutionary and cutting-edge idea in the American market,” said Cleiber Silva, the company’s general manager. This innovative concept is being spearheaded in Central Florida by Pool Heater Rentals, giving residents the opportunity to have a high-end heat pump for a fraction of the cost. “What makes this rental package so revolutionary is how it makes heating your pool easy and affordable,” Silva said. “Instead of paying thousands of dollars upfront, you’re guaranteed a five-year warranty and professional pool services for just a low monthly payment of $98.” Much like leasing a vehicle, Pool Heater Rentals carries the burden of maintaining the equipment while the pool and/or spa owner reaps the benefits with an all-inclusive pool heater rental package. Installation is free, maintenance is included, there are no credit checks and no payment for the first 30 days, and free annual tune-ups. Its warranty covers all maintenance and repairs for up to five years. And, with this leaseto-own program, the customer gets to keep the pool heater at the end of his or her contract. With benefits like that, it’s hard to deny yourself the luxury of a heated pool. Silva has seen the high demand in Orlando for a cost-efficient way to upgrade or maintain a heated pool. In less than a month, his team has contracted to install more than 120 heat pumps. “We offer state-of-the-art equipment to our customers with our Raypak pool heaters, and we include equipment training as part of our all-inclusive services,” he said. “That way, our customers have a quality product and also understand how to use it energy-efficiently.” Pool Heater Rentals is a subsidiary of Falcon Commercial Pools, a respected commercial pool company that has been in business for 15 years. Falcon’s client list ranges from Universal Studios to Walt Disney World Resort to Marriott to Hilton and more. Pool Heater Rentals is fully licensed and bonded, and employs a staff of experienced technicians. “Our licensed team of pool professionals takes care of all maintenance and repairs for our clients,” Silva said. “We want our customers to PROMOTIONAL FEATURE enjoy their heated pool year-round, without any of the hassle.” All types of pool owners can benefit from renting a heat pump. Some of the more common circumstances are those who have a broken heater in their hot tub or spa and have been putting off the expense to fix it; those who have a pool, but want to upgrade to a heated pool; and those who have rental properties or vacation homes and can use the temperature control as an upsell feature on the property. Pool Heater Rentals is also a hassle-free solution for commercial properties, such as hotels, motels and condominiums. Vacationers are often sold on a property based on the amenities. One of the most popular is having a pool. Having a heated pool or spa is a luxury sure to set any property high above the rest. For entities that have several properties or homes, Pool Heater Rentals alleviates the burden of dealing with a new vendor at every location. Silva said he has started to see the old mentality of having a heated pool or spa as being overly expensive start to turn around. It is a common misconception that electric bills will skyrocket with the use of a heat pump. In reality, Pool Heater Rentals’ units only use about $3 per day of electricity for a medium-sized pool. Having a heated pool isn’t just for people who don’t like the cold water; it also comes with both mental and physical health benefits. For seniors or anyone with joint concerns, using a pool for exercise is low-risk and high-reward. The water creates resistance for a full-body workout without the hard impact of running or aerobics, and its weightless environment makes every movement low-impact. Heavy gym users and athletes also benefit from the warm, soothing water to rehabilitate strained and sore muscles. The pool has a purpose for people of all ages and lifestyles, from seniors to busy professionals to families. Let Pool Heater Rentals make the pool your favorite gathering spot all year long. As Silva says, “With Pool Heater Rentals, every day is pool day!” Pool Heater Rentals’ packages start at $98 per month.
