We all know that swimming in a cold pool is not the most comfortable way of cooling down on a hot day. After your pool builder is done installing your pool, you should ask them “What is the best way for me to keep my pool temperature at a comfortable level?”. We are the top pool builder in the Katy and Houston area. Here’s our breakdown of how to heat your pool the best way.
Heating your pool and keeping it at a comfortable temperature has many benefits:
- It gives you the option to use your pool any time of the day, regardless of outside temperature.
- It increases the amount of time you spend outdoors exercising.
- Also, it provides a more comfortable swimming environment.
Here are some of the most common ways of heating up your pool.
Gas heaters are the most popular equipment used for heating pools due to their speed and efficiency in heating. You have the option to use natural gas or propane. Gas heaters are usually mid-range when it comes to pricing, but they have the advantage of keeping your pool warm no matter the outside temperature. You can easily feel a 30 °F temperature difference with a gas heater.
Electric Spa Heater
Electric spa heaters quickly heat the water in your spa. They fit in compact spaces and don’t require a gas connection. They are relatively cheaper than gas heaters, but do not last as long and are not as powerful.
Heat pumps are a great option if you want something that will also help cool down your pool. They transfer heat from the environment into the pool. They are more expensive than gas heaters and electric heaters, but are more energy efficient in the long run. While heat pumps are a good choice for maintaining your pool’s temperature at a certain level, they are very sensitive to climate variability because their main source of heat is the environment they’re in.
