Relieves Stress in a Heated Pool
One of our favorite benefits of swimming are the wonders it can perform in reducing your stress levels. There’s nothing more relaxing than taking a dip in a heated pool in fall or winter. Swimming during the winter can also help combat depression and seasonal affective disorder.
Avoids Cold Shock
When you swim in cold water, you can shock your body and decrease your pool’s health benefits. Cold water can worsen respiratory problems, make your joints stiffer, and is simply uncomfortable. A heated pool lets you take advantage of your pool no matter the time of day or year. Installing a heating system in your pool is one of the many ways you can keep your home comfortable in the winter.
If you experience respiratory problems or want to improve your lung capacity, swimming in a heated pool can help you. Swimming, in general, is a great way to improve your lung capacity, but you’ll need a heated pool to reap the benefits throughout the whole year. In the winter the air becomes dry, causing respiratory problems to worsen. Heated pools are a great way to help reverse these respiratory irritants.
