Swimming pool heaters are used to keep the water temperature in swimming pools at a consistently warm temperature.
This allows a pool owner to extend the swimming seasons, by two or even threefold. There are three basic types of swimming pool heaters: gas heaters, electric heat pumps, and solar-based heaters. Each type has its advantages and disadvantages. Below we will give a brief example of each and this way you can determine which is best for you.
- Heat pumps – Rely on electricity to operate. Air is pulled into the heat pump coil, and heat from the air is then transferred to the pool water. The warm water is circulated to your pool using your filter pump. This is ideal for athletes and pool owners that wish to benefit from consistent warm waters. They can maintain a consistent temperature regardless of the weather, and they also tend to keep the water warmer than others systems. This is one of the best options for homeowners.
