Although Arizona offers warm weather year-round, the temperatures in the winter can be less than ideal for swimming. That is unless you consider installing a water heater in your pool. A water heater can help raise the temperatures of your pool to a more comfortable level, letting you enjoy your pool no matter the outside temperature. There are a variety of different types of pool heaters, and each has different pros and cons. A No Limit Pool builder Phoenix, we can help you find the perfect heater for your pool. Here is a rundown of the best pool heaters available to get you started.
Solar Pool Heaters
Solar pool heaters use the sun to power the heater and use your existing pool pump to circulate warm water. The solar panels are usually installed on your roof out of sight and run during the daylight hours. Solar heaters are great because they have no operational costs. Depending on the size of your pool, they may be more expensive to install than some of the other options, but they ultimately save you money in the long run.
Gas Pump Pool Heaters
A gas pump pool heater uses natural gas or propane to heat your pool. The system uses a combustion engine where the heat is generated and then transferred to your pool. Gas heaters can be an extremely affordable option depending on your pool size. However, they require storage for a propane tank or a natural gas line they can tap into. These heaters are great for intermittent heating, if you want to only run them on occasion.
Heat Pump Pool Heaters
Heat pump pool heaters use electricity to generate heat. They work by extracting the warm air into a compressor and then transferred to the pool water. Heat pump pool heaters tend to be the most expensive option but are the most effective and least obtrusive of all of them. We highly recommend this heater for anyone using water therapy or sports training.
Deciding which heater to use depends on a couple of factors, but your No Limit pool builder Phoenix rep can help. We’ll assess your needs, pool, and find the option that is right for you so you can begin to enjoy your pool all year long.
