HEATING SOLUTIONS TO EXTEND THE SEASON
A pool heater or a pool heat pump are the most common heating solutions that allow you to maintain a continuous temperature in warm and cooler weather. Both enable energy-efficient heating for every budget. Brent and Derrick Marth have the manufacturer training to help you consider the various factors and recommend the best heating solution for your pool.
3 FACTORS TO CONSIDER
- Size & shape of the pool
- Season length: Summer vs. Extended Season
- Heater Size in BTUs
A pool heat pump takes heat from the air and transfers it into your pool water. They are extremely energy-efficient to operate and deliver savings of up to 70% versus a gas heater. A heat pump is not meant to raise the temperature of the water quickly, but can maintain heat and extend swim season. If you have a party on the weekend, turn it on earlier in the week to warm the water. Another advantage: the heat pump can keep your water cooler on the hottest summer days.
A gas pool heater burns gas to heat water for your pool, making it the ideal pool heating solution if you have low-cost access to natural gas or propane. Gas-fired pool heaters pack a powerful punch and can heat your pool’s water faster than a heat pump.
CHOOSING THE CORRECT HEATER FOR YOUR POOL
Either fuel will make your pool just as warm and comfortable as the other, but differences in energy content, distribution methods and fuel cost need to be considered. Caution: only a licensed gas plumber can hook up the gas line
