Using swimming pool heaters in the winter is a fantastic way to keep your pool active regardless of the time of year. Additionally, your pool heater should keep your swimming pool system functioning properly throughout the winter. It will prevent pipes from becoming too cold and eventually bursting.
When it comes to selecting what type of pool heater you would want, there are plenty of options. Solar pool heaters work well in Arizona due to the immense amount of sunshine we experience on a weekly basis. While the installation of solar panels can be expensive, the costs afterwards are dramatically decreased as there is no charge for using sunlight. Solar heaters are the most popular method used by our Gilbert pool maintenance and repair company.
Another option is gas pool heaters. Being very energy efficient, these pool heaters always provide a quality product. Gas pool heaters also warm up your pool at a considerably faster rate than solar pool heaters. Electric pool heaters are another choice, although while they are a quality product, they tend to be more expensive than their counterparts. This is due to the fact that you will see a rise in your energy bill, depending on how often you utilize the heater.
Similar to electric pool heaters, propane pool heaters are another expensive option. They are great to use if you are not using your pool that often, otherwise operation costs will rise drastically if you use your pool frequently. Propane heaters do heat your pool up at a faster rate than electric or solar heaters though.
Swimming pool heaters do serve the purpose of keeping your pool comfortable enough to swim in regardless of how cold it is outside. Make sure to do proper research when choosing a pool heater, as individual circumstances may dictate which pool heater will work best for you. Definitely make sure to consider whether or not a seller is willing to do the installation themselves, or if that is something that will need to be done separately.
After considering all of the following, you should be able to feel confident is purchasing the best pool heater for you. If you need help with installation, make sure to call your local Gilbert pool maintenance and repair company to do the job the right way, the first time.
