One of the factors that determine whether you need a heater for your pool is the climate where you live. In warmer climates, the sun and heat can be enough to keep the pool comfortable for swimming most of the year. However, if you live in a cooler place like Alaska, it'll take longer for your water to reach a comfortable temperature. This is where heaters come in - they're especially helpful in colder climates because they extend the season when your pool can be used. The most common pool heaters are solar pool heaters, gas furnaces and heat pumps.
Solar pool heaters use the sun's energy to heat your water. They cost a few thousand dollars, and are most effective in areas with a lot of sun; solar pool heaters need about four to six hours of direct sunlight per day to heat a pool. They work using solar panels, after your filter cleans the water, a pump then sends it through the panels to heat up. This heated water then goes back into the pool. At night when you're not using the heater, you can also cover your pool with a solar blanket. This will take advantage of any available sunlight and will keep your water at a comfortable temperature below the blanket.
Gas pool heaters are an affordable, quick, and easy way to heat your pool. It usually doesn't take a lot of gas to get the job done. Depending on what your utility company charges, you might save some money with a gas heater instead of an electric one. Or maybe you'll prefer solar heaters that use the sun's energy for heating. If so, you can find our eco-friendly models online at Wotech Heat Pumps for all your spa heating and pool heating needs.
