The Different types Of Pool Heating

Solar-Heat-Pumps-ClickerThere are different types of pool heating systems. To choose the best system for your pool, you need to consider certain things, they include: your desire, needs, physical location of the pool, budget and the house. Your location will in fact play a significant role in your decision because the varying weather condition and different energy pricing by different states usually influence your overall decision. Here are basic information that will help with your decision.

Solar pool heating

This system has become increasingly popular obviously because it uses free energy from the sun, which gives it a kind of edge and advantage over other pool heating systems. The system works by direct heat transfer. Your pool water is circulated through the collector, which is often located somewhere on the roof. Many of these systems use a digital controller that sends water all the way to the roof whenever there is a good amount of sunshine only if the pool is not already at the appropriate temperature.

The system is best for recreational pool owners who need a heating system that is cost effective and in turn provides a warm pool whenever people desire to swim in it. The only additional expense after the initial installation cost is the operation of the booster pump and this is highly recommended basically because its dependent on weather conditions, the system usually provides a consistent temperature on the summer and a fluctuating temperature rise at the end of the season in late spring as well as early autumn.

Whenever you are considering the installation of a solar heater, the most important factors are the collector design, collector area proposed and quality of the material. The sun will only provide energy at a fix rate, so your system stands to gain more heat if your collector is large.

Gas heater

They are often used in large numbers on spas and pools because they usually give great flexibility to the owner of the pool as they heat rapidly and they are robust. This system can perfectly maintain any desired water temperature because typical sizing is usually based on providing heater capacity that is able to achieve a 14 degree Celsius in water temperature within 24 hours. This easily heats up a cold pool to a temperature between 28 and 30 degree Celsius in just one day and even in winter. The awesome heating strength makes gas the best choice for entertainment pools.

Considering the cost of heating, the continual maintenance of a pool temperature using gas is applicable during the warmest months. But the pool heated with solar will differ in temperature during this season. Gas heated pools are usually maintained at the owner’s preferred temperature. The cost of heating gas is modest as the requirement of heating of the pool is relatively low.
