There are several pool heating options that can help you enjoy a warm swim in the winter and autumn months. Each has its pros and cons, and it is important to weigh each one carefully before deciding which is best for you.
While you can pick any, when is it best to opt for an electric pool heater? Here, we look at some instances when an electric pool heater is the best option for your heating needs.
Large Enough Budget
Electric pool heaters are often more expensive than other pool heating options. The higher price tag usually translates into more efficient and powerful heating. Plus, they have a longer service life with proper maintenance.
If you can afford the initial high cost of buying an electric pool heater, this is a great option. Additionally, thanks to its high efficiency, it consumes more energy than other heaters. That translates to higher monthly utility bills but also faster heating times. If you are willing and can foot the bills, install one.
Year-Round Warm Pool
As long as there is electricity, an electric pool heater will serve you well throughout the year. Even in the coldest winter months, you can rest assured of enjoying a warm and comfortable swim. While other heating systems can still work during the cold months, they aren’t as reliable as an electric pool heater.
You won’t have to worry about the heater freezing. It works throughout the year, regardless of the temperature outside. Just switch it on, and your pool will get heated quickly. If you want to enjoy a nice warm pool all year round, an electric pool heater is the best option.
Planning Your Swim
Heating an entire pool takes time. It’s not as easy as switching the heater on and jumping in the pool the next minute. It takes hours.
The time an electric pool heater takes to heat your entire pool depends on a few factors. First, it’s the size of the pool and the amount of water in it. The larger the pool, the more energy and time it takes to heat all that water.
Second, it’s the temperature you want your pool to be. The higher the temperature, the more time it will take to reach that level. Lastly, it’s the climate condition around the pool. If it’s freezing cold outside, the water will take longer to achieve the desired temperature.
So, if you can plan your swimming schedule, an electric pool heater can serve you well. Switch it on a few hours before jumping in, and it’ll do its job perfectly.
