Labor Day weekend is here and with it the traditional end to summer, as sad as it is. But honestly, there are some traditions that just don’t deserve to be around. Buck the trend and keep the poolside fun going for a few extra months with a pool heater or pool pump.
Heat pumps have one big advantage over pool heaters, they run on electricity which means lower operating costs when compared to a pool heater. Plus, they can operate off of the existing electrical set up installed with your pool. An electric condenser warms cold pool water by extracting and condensing the heat from the outside air. Despite the lower operating costs and no need to install new utility hookups, heat pumps have a major disadvantage for those looking to really extend their pool season. Heat pumps cost more initially than pool heaters, and cannot operate at temperatures under 50-degrees.
Pool heaters are a bit more simple than heat pumps, and work at any temperature. They operate by using natural gas and a burner to warm pool water as it flows through the system, just like a home water heater. Natural gas is more expensive than electricity, so operating costs will be higher than with heat pumps. A pool heater will be generally less expensive upfront than a heat pump, but a high number of moving parts in the system means there’s more of a chance something might break.
