GAS POOL HEATERS
Natural gas pool heaters will warm up your pool water the quickest. They work by warming up water through heated copper coils. This allows them to be independent of current weather like other heaters. They are more expensive and more costly to run if you plan on using it often.
ELECTRIC POOL HEATERS
Electric pool heaters are the most dependable and cost-efficient. They work by drawing in the ambient heat from the air and transferring that into the cooler water it draws from your pool. But, this also makes their heat pumps only effective at air temperatures of at least 50° Fahrenheit.
SOLAR POOL HEATERS
Solar pool heaters are the most energy-efficient. They work by pumping pool water through solar hot water panels — that will sit on your lawn or roof of your house. Solar heaters are the most expensive to set up, but need no monthly costs to run.
How Long Does a Pool Take to Heat?
Many factors that will affect heating time. These include: heater type, pool gallon amount, and water temperature, among others. You can speed up this process by using a pool cover — when the pool is not in use — to limit evaporation and heat loss. We can help you determine how fast it should heat for your pool setup.
How Much Does It Cost to Run a Pool Heater Per Month?
Solar pool heaters have zero cost to run per month. For gas or electric pool heaters, factors such as utility costs and how much you plan on using the heater determine cost. To get the most efficiency out of any pool heating system, quality installation and regular maintenance is key. We can help you figure the monthly cost you can expect from your system.
