Wouldn’t you like to enjoy your pool year round? Are you looking into purchasing a swimming pool heater and want to know which is best for you? This is a big problem for many people because there are many different types of heaters, heat pumps and solar heaters. There’s 2 basic questions people want to know when It comes to a new product. How much is the initial cost and how much does it cost to run.

Heat pumps are electric pool heaters that run like a reverse air conditioner. An air-source heat pump uses electricity to transfer heat, instead of creating heat. Depending on the specific unit it produces more energy than it uses. The efficiency of a swimming pool heater is measured by its coefficient performance. The main advantages of an air source heat pump is the low operating costs, long lifespan, and very Eco Friendly. All swimming pools can add an electric pool heater sometimes a breaker has to be added for the extra power consumption.

Gas Heaters are most efficient when heating pools for a short period. They can heat a pool in a few hours. Gas heaters use natural gas or propane. As the pool water circulates through the heater the gas burns a combustion chamber, generating heat that transfers to the pool water returns. Unlike heat pumps and solar pool heaters. Gas heaters can maintain water temperature in any conditions because they can heat so quickly.

Solar pool heating is a set of panels either set on your roof or in your yard that is plumbed into the pools water system. You can significantly reduce swimming pool heating cost by installing a solar pool heater. The initial cost is very competitive with the other 2 options. But this option has very little to no monthly cost. A solar pool heater is great for the environment. A solar water heater is great to maintain that warm water all year round.
