Having a heated pool means having fun year round with your family and friends. Here are a few options for your consideration when investing in a heater for your pool.
1. Gas v. Electric Heater
An electric heat pump is a type of pool heater that will use the warm air from outside and run it through the compressor to heat the pool by converting the air to heated water. The upside of a heat pump is they are usually less expensive to run, the downfall is they can be very slow to heat up the water and do not work well once the outside temperature drops much below 55 degrees.
A gas pool heater is very efficient a quickly heats up the pool water. The downside to a gas heater is the cost of fuel fluctuates and the maintenance on the gas heater is much higher than electric. However, the gas heater works well no matter what the outside temperature is.
