Gas Pool Heaters
Gas pool heaters are very effective, but they are also the most expensive way to heat your pool. Newer models are far more efficient than those available just a few years ago, but the cost of operation makes them more suited to those consumers heating their pools only occasionally.
These heaters are fueled by either natural gas or propane. A pump circulates the water, which is drawn through a filter into the heater. The water is then returned to your pool in a continuous loop. It is important that your gas pool heater is installed properly to ensure that you get the most efficient operation from it. Any repairs or maintenance should only be performed by a professional trained to service pool heating equipment, so call us with any issues you are having.
Solar Pool Heaters
If you live in a consistently sunny climate then heating your pool with solar energy may be the best option for you. Solar heaters consist of a collector to harness energy from the sun. They system’s pump circulates the pool water through a filter and the collector, returning heated water to the pool. A flow control valve moderates the amount of water coming through at any given time. Don’t be deterred by high initial costs if this sounds interesting to you. Solar heating is by far the most cost–effective way to heat your pool after you make the initial investment.
Because of climate specific variables, such as the materials that collectors are made from, it is important that you have a knowledgeable professional help you in the decision making process. Leslie Heating & Cooling is happy to answer any questions you may have as well as perform all necessary pool heater services, including regular maintenance, so let us know what we can do to help you.
Electric Heat Pump Pool Heaters
While electric heat pumps won’t heat your pool as fast as gas, they are much more efficient. This is due to the fact that, rather than burning fuel to create heat, heat pumps transfer preexisting heat to cooler areas. As water is pumped through the heat pump a fan takes outside air and blows it over the evaporator coil, which is filled with refrigerant that becomes gas after absorbing heat. The compressor increases the heat and the condenser transfers the heat to the water which is then returned to your pool. As with solar pumps, heat pumps cost more than gas heaters to purchase but operate at much lower costs due to the heat transfer method.
