Summer is over, but that doesn’t mean it has to be the end of pool season! Heaters give you the opportunity to extend your pool season into the fall. If you aren’t ready to say goodbye to pool days just yet, install a pool heater so you don’t have to.
Types of Pool Heaters
Investing in a pool heater makes it possible to enjoy your pool as the weather gets colder. Heaters allow the water temperature to remain comfortable even if the weather temperature is dropping. There are a few different heaters for you to consider.
Gas heaters heat your pool by using propane or natural gas. They use this fuel to heat the water before it enters the pool. This type of heating is more expensive, but it is the most convenient option with the ability to quickly heat up your pool when needed.
Heat pumps can help you save a lot of money. They have a higher upfront cost, but they save money in the long run. This is because they have less expensive energy costs. Heat pumps cost a fraction of what a gas heater costs to run per hour.
Heat pumps utilize the air around the unit to heat the pool. Therefore, they require a temperature above 50 degrees to work. This means that your location will help determine if a heat pump is the right pool heater for you.
Solar heaters use sunlight to generate heat for your pool. They’re a great cost effective and sustainable option. Solar heaters utilize sunlight to work, making them work better in areas with more sunlight exposure. Pools in areas that have a lot of sunny days will benefit the most from solar heaters.
Pool Heater Installation
Once you choose the right heater for your pool, you’ll have to have it properly installed. You’ll want a professional pool company to get your heater installed and running. Proper installation is essential to extending your pool season. There is also the added component of annual heater maintenance that must be handled and it is best to leave it to the professionals. Proper pool heater installation and maintenance will help extend the life of your heater to its fullest potential.
Even though summer is over, you can still enjoy your pool. Invest in a pool heater and extend your swim-season! If you are in need of pool professionals to help you choose, install, and maintain a heater, we can help! Contact us to set up a consultation.
