If you have installed a swimming pool recently but haven’t chosen pool heather yet, you definitely should add this on your to-do list. There are plenty of pool heating solutions for you to choose from, but how do you know which one is best for your needs? The ideal choice will depend on numerous factors such as the type and size of your pool, how often and at which temperature you want to swim as well as what period of the year do you intend to use it most? A number of popular pool heating systems are briefly discussed below.
Electric Heat Pump
Electric heat pumps are the most popular pool heating system you will come across on the market today. They are highly efficient, easy to use, economical and durable. Plus, they are much more eco-friendly than gas or fuel pool heating systems and they have a long lifespan. While this type of pool heather might be a bit more expansive than the traditional gas-powered models, it consumes less energy than the gas-powered type, so you will spend less money in the long run. Furthermore, an electric heater does not emit carbon dioxide, which also helps reduce the amount of carbon in the air.
Solar energy is an efficient and environmentally-friendly method for heating your pool. Instead of heat, solar panels produce energy which is used to heat the pool with an electric heating system. The price of this system will depend on the number of panels you need, the type and quality of the solar panels and their capacity. Solar panels need to be used on a large surface, which should preferably be facing south. So, as long as you have a big budget and surface to install the solar panels, heating your pool with solar panels is a great option.
To quickly heat up your swimming pools, you can use a titanium heat exchanger. It has the capability to heat up your pool in just one day, making it perfect for those who swim only from time to time. They work in a way that electricity heats a resistor, which then transfers the heat to the water flowing past the resistance. Although this system is relatively inexpensive to install, its high energy consumption can be a problem for some people.
As you can see, each solution has its pros and cons. Take your time to weigh your options and determine which one meets your needs and budget as well. Have fun relaxing in your heated pool!
