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 put 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 an ideal choice to help 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. A proven thermal engineering concept, solar heating allows you to make the most of summer while saving thousands on electricity or gas bills. Solar enables 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 you want to extend the number of months you can swim either side of summer, installing a swimming pool heat pump can give you the flexibility that 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 a half a day to set up, your pool can be ready for an early morning dip the day after installation!

Gas Pool Heaters
For a fast and reliable heating solution, an energy-efficient gas pool heater might be your best option. Gas heaters excel at rapidly heating pools by using constant, direct heat from a flame, through either 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, therefore reducing your energy bills. A gas pool heater is an ideal choice 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 in conjunction 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 in the heat and also significantly reduce pool evaporation. A pool cover is a must-have investment that will pay for itself several times over.
