Summer is such an enjoyable time of year and part of that very enjoyment is spending hours and hours with family and friends swimming in your pool. Summer is certainly a short-lived season and the amount of time you spend enjoying the family pool is minimal as well. In some locations, however, you can actually extend the number of weeks and months you have to swim in your pool, but having a pool heater will be essential to this quest.
Simple Insight on Swimming Pool Heaters
Whether you use your pool regularly, cover it at the end of every summer or use it only occasionally, regular routine maintenance is still essential. Cleaning the pool filter plays a significant role in the overall performance of your pool. Further, proper care and maintenance of your pool heater is every bit as important to the functionality and performance of your pool as is the pool filter. In both instances, the pool water is passed through either the filter or heater and is then filtered back into your swimming pool. In essence, the water is being recycled and made clean and healthy to allow everyone to enjoy their time relaxing and swimming.
Various Pool Heaters
There are three specific types of pool heaters available today. One is electric, one is gas and the other is a solar heater. We would like to take this opportunity to explain the difference between the three.
A gas heater is a good option if your home is equipped with natural gas which is ever so affordable. Despite the fact that gas emissions work rather quickly and are accessible all year round, however, we want to remind our clients that gas emissions are known to be remarkably harmful to the environment. For this reason, many people shy away from this option.
Solar heaters only perform well in sunny locations and areas. This option can be incredibly cost effective, but again, it has limitations as to where they can perform best.
Finally, electric heaters, which are often referred to as heat pumps, are by far the most eco-friendly of the options. Using electricity to heat your pool, these heaters are very affordable to use. They present with a longer lifespan and are sure to perform consistently so long as you don’t experience a loss of power.
Having shared this information with you here, we also want to advise our valued clients that it is best to partner with the right electric company when it comes time to install your pool heater. The right experience, expertise and know-how is necessary when working with any type of electrical installation and that certainly includes installing a state-of-the-art heater in your home pool. Electricians can easily answer all your questions and discuss in detail any concerns you may have prior to your installation.
