The Best Ways to Heat Your Swimming Pool
When the weather is warm, and the sun is shining, what better place is there to be than swimming in your pool? But how about when the cooler temperatures start setting in? Does your pool become an unused expense sitting in the backyard? Make the most of your investment and heat your pool all year round. Your family’s needs, budget and pool set-up all play a significant role in determining the best way to heat your swimming pool. To help with your decision, we’ve pulled together some helpful information on our most popular options to help you get the most out of your swimming pool – all year round.
Solar Pool Heating
With our naturally sunny and warm climate, solar pool heating is ideal for helping you get the most out of your pool. Solar pool heating is by far the most economical and eco-friendly way to heat your pool. Solar heating is a proven thermal engineering concept that allows you to make the most of summer while saving thousands on electricity or gas bills. Pool solar panels enable you to extend your swim season, making the most of your investment and increasing the value of your home efficiently, cost-effectively, and with minimal environmental impact.

Pool Heat Pumps
A pool heat pump allows you to set the temperature of your pool, providing consistently warm water so that your pool (or spa) is ready when you are. Whether you want your pool heated all year round, or to extend the number of months, you can swim on either side of summer, installing a swimming pool heat pump can give you the flexibility you are after. Similar to air conditioners, pool heat pumps raise the temperature by pulling warm air out of the atmosphere and transferring that heat into your pool water. And with this popular option generally taking only half a day or so to set up, your pool can be ready for an early morning dip the day after installation!

Gas Pool Heaters
An energy-efficient gas pool heater might be your best option for a fast and reliable heating solution. Gas heaters heat pools by using constant, direct heat from a flame through natural gas (hooked up to your home) or LPG tanks. Because gas heats the water so quickly (up to three times faster than electricity), the system can be turned on and off to suit your needs, reducing energy bills. A gas pool heater is ideal for those who want to use their pool occasionally over the colder months, for example, on the weekends, training, or for social events.

While nowhere near as quick or efficient as other heating methods, a solar collector pool blanket (cover) will still increase your pool’s temperature by absorbing sunlight, transferring it into heat and trapping that heat in the pool area. When used with solar panels, an inverter heat pump or a gas heater, a made-to-measure cover on your pool will help save money on heating costs by trapping the heat and significantly reduce pool evaporation. A pool cover is a must-have investment that will pay for itself several times over.
