Pentair Pool and Spa Heaters
What should I consider when selecting a new pool heater?
Pool heaters are a wonderful convenience in the cold New Hampshire climate. We typically only have a couple of months of a real summer season. By the time the pool warms up naturally from the weather, the time we have to enjoy it is reduced. A pool heater can be a great investment so that you can use your pool for a longer amount of days during the season. Or of course, if you wanted to use your pool year-round, a heater is a must even for indoor pools. There are several great options for pool heaters and you should consider the usage of your pool before you decide.
What is your existing fuel type or what fuel sources do you have in your home? Is it propane, natural gas, or oil? There are advantages and disadvantages to each, but the type of fuel helps narrow down the options.
Usage and Recovery
This is possibly the most important thing to consider. Are you looking to maintain a constant warm temperature or are you looking for an occasional warm up the pool a bit type of heater? A heat pump is built for a lower recovery than a gas unit. Heat pumps are generally far more efficient but gas gets you warmed up quickly. This is important to decide which you are more likely to benefit from.
