Heaters that use electricity can greatly save energy costs, since you’re not relying on the cost of fuel in your area. They work by heating a coil that in turn heats the water in the swimming pool. Some electric models take longer to heat your pool than a gas or propane heater. In this scenario, a heat pump is an effective way to heat your pool water using electricity.
An electric heat pump functions by transferring warm air to the water. The heat pump compressor heats the air and transfers the heat to the water using a heat exchanger. Keep in mind that using this type of electric heater is most effective when the outside temperature is higher than 40 degrees Fahrenheit. For this reason, electric heaters and heat pumps are more common in warmer regions. If you want to save energy, money, and have a limited amount of space for a heater, choose an electric model. You’ll be surprised at how much longer your swim season will last.
