Inground Pool Heaters
Cold weather can’t be stopped, but you don’t have to close your inground swimming pool right away. Inground pool heaters are the perfect solution to warm your swimming pool water to the perfect temperature during impending cold days or nights, and can occasionally last the entire season. Most types inground pool heaters provide heat on demand when you need it most.
Before you purchase an inground heater, it’s important to first determine how much and how often you’ll be heating your pool. If you live in colder climates, and need a heater for your inground swimming pool that will warm the water quickly, view the selection of gas or propane-powered heaters. They don’t rely on the temperature outside to warm your water. If natural gas or propane isn’t readily available in your area, view the selection of electric heaters. They’re reliable, easy to use and designed to fit in tight spaces.
There are two types of electric heaters for inground swimming pools: basic electric and heat pump. Electric pool heaters work by heating a coil that heats the water in the pool. However, keep in mind that these inground heaters take longer to heat the water and are ideally used in climates above 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
Heat pump electric pool heaters are an effective way to heat the pool with electricity, and they don’t take as long as a coil system. Inground heat pumps work 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. This is an efficient use of electricity because the heat is transferred, not generated. Heat pumps are a standard choice among pool owners who live in warmer climates, since they do rely on the temperature outside to heat the pool water.
