Swimming Pool Construction: Include a Heater
Even weather perfect San Diego, cooler winters and evenings can put a damper on your swimming plans. That’s why with every swimming pool construction project, we recommend installing a pool heater. We are all familiar with the great benefits swimming offers. From improved health and reduced stress to good old fun and relaxation, a pool heater ensures you get the most out of your pool all twelve months of the year.
Ask your swimming pool construction company.
When considering a pool heater, your best bet is to talk to your swimming pool construction company. Here is a primer so you can get that conversation going.
Three different types of heaters.
Much like stoves, pool heaters offers various options for generating heat.
- Heat Pumps
There are two types of heat pumps: those that transfer heat from the air and those that transfer it from a water source. Heat pumps are environmentally friendly because they rely on renewable energy and emit no pollution. They are economical to operate, but expensive to install, running between $2500-$4500. They also take a long time to heat your pool.
2. Solar Heaters
Solar heaters use solar panels to heat water as it passes through. Ranging from $5000-$7000, they are more expensive than heat pumps, but require minimal if any monthly expenses. They are environmentally friendly, but take a while to heat a pool and operate less efficiently on cloudy days.
3. Gas Heaters
Gas heaters heats water as it passes through coils. These are the most common pool heaters. They offer several benefits: inexpensive to purchase (roughly $2000) and they quickly heat your pool. However, they come with a high monthly gas bill and are not environmentally friendly.
If you’re in the market for a new pool, talk to your swimming pool construction company about a heater. They can advise you on the best option for your lifestyle.
