Heating Your Inground Pool

Much colder weather and a rare blue moon are expected later this month. The latter will light up the Halloween night sky in Spooktacular fashion and will be viewable in all time zones for the first time in 76 years. We can’t think of a better way to observe it than while in an inground pool, heated to a comfortable temperature, of course.

Factors to Consider

Gas heat and heat pumps are two of the most popular options for heating your inground pool. Before deciding, it is essential to consider such factors as the pool’s surface area and your desired temperature, even in the coldest month of use.

Additional factors that may affect the heater’s efficiency include house orientation, wind exposure, and humidity levels. A Phoenix pool builder can provide recommendations and help you make an informed buying decision. 

Types of Pool Heaters

Gas Heat

A gas heater can heat your pool with more incredible speed than other types. These a popular option for residents who want to heat the water to a comfortable temperature as needed quickly. There are different ways to heat your pool if you prefer consistency. Because gas heaters use either natural gas or propane, they perform well in any climate, making them an excellent choice for Arizona’s high country.

Heat Pump

Heat pumps are ideal for valley residents because they rely on the ambient temperature in the air to maintain the perfect water temperature consistently. They are equally environmentally friendly and energy-efficient. According to Hayward, heat pumps can deliver savings of up to 70 percent. Alternatively, these can be set to cool the water, which is especially helpful when temperatures exceed 110°F.
