Extend Your Swimming Season With A Pool Heater
Are you looking to lengthen your swimming season? Then you will want to consider a Pool Heater. They are a great way to quickly heat your water, and allow you to enjoy your pool after the end of normal swim season. Ideal for in-ground pools, heaters are designed to extend the season into the early spring and late fall by keeping your water at a comfortable swimming temperature. There are so many water heaters out there on the market, knowing which one to pick will be difficult. However, some people make use of reviews from WaterHeaterReviewsSite, for example, to make sure they have the correct pool heater for them. Keep your swimming pool in use over winter with the help of one of these heaters!
A Heat Pump is an efficient and useful way to heat your pool. Purchasing a Heat Pump will give you warm water even during cold weather at low operating costs. Heat Pumps work by gathering warm air around the pool, compressing and heating it, and using that hot air to heat the pool water that runs through. Heat Pumps are designed to raise the temperature of a pool up to the perfect swimming range, between 78 – 82 degrees Fahrenheit. But because they work by taking in air that is already warm, they work best in humid areas where the temperature stays above 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Most Heat Pumps will still operate if the temperature goes below 60, but will automatically shut off if the temperature reaches 50 degrees or below to prevent damage. The last thing anyone would want to do is figure out how to fix a water heater leak in their heat pump in such cold conditions, after all. Heat Pumps usually offer ranges from 50K BTUs for smaller pools, up to 135K BTUs for larger pools. Heat Pumps are cheap to run, easy to use, and need minimal maintenance. They are cost-effective and environmentally friendly because they do not use fossil fuels to heat the water.
Gas Heaters run on either propane or natural gas, depending on the model, and run at up to 80-95% energy efficiency. Whereas melting drums and drum heaters are used for the purpose of keeping materials at a constant temperature. Gas Heaters are some of the most effective heaters on the market. They are designed to raise the temperature of a pool up to the perfect range, between 78 – 82 degrees Fahrenheit. Most Gas Heaters are capable of increasing the water temperature 30 degrees or more. Gas Heaters usually range from 125K BTUs for small pools, up to 400K BTUs for large pools. Most Gas Heaters meet or exceed Low NOx Emissions Requirements, meaning you are getting the most advanced, eco-friendly heaters available that will keep your pool and your family safe and healthy.
For those who want to go the extra mile, without retaining the heat in your pool much of the energy that is used warming the pool will dissipate into the air. Using a solar cover along with a heater can save you as much as 50% of the cost of energy it takes to heat your pool. Combining a solar cover with a Heat Pump will heat your pool more quickly, and will keep the pool warm long into the night.
Pools come in all shapes and sizes, so the heat needed for each pool can vary to reach comfortable temperatures. If you are not sure what size pool heater you should be looking for, a Pool Supply Warehouse professional is available at our retail store or at 623-939-1346 for any questions you have.
