When you bought a new pool or purchased a home with a pool in South Miami, you may never have expected you would need a pool heater. But as the months went by, you probably quickly discovered that using the pool in the summer months can be an unpleasant experience. Pool heaters can allow you extra months of enjoyment, exercise, and family fun, but there are actually a few different types of swimming pool heaters to choose from.

When you decide it’s time to heat up your pool for the winter, call the experts at Air on Demand for expert installation and advice on pool heaters in South Miami.

Gas swimming pool heaters used to be the norm, using the natural gas from the utility company to power the outside unit. Gas units operate using combustion to generate heat and a heat exchanger to transfer that heat to the water. Water continuously cycles through the unit and back to the pool. Gas swimming pool heaters are still widely used, but they’re generally considered best for heating a pool for only a short period of time. This is best for pools that are used infrequently and need a type of heater that will work quickly.

Heat Pump Pool Heaters

But there are other options for you to choose from, and it’s better to let a professional help you select the proper unit. One of the most popular types in use today is the heat pump pool heater. These are extremely efficient because they don’t actually have to generate heat. Instead, they use a refrigerant blend to absorb heat from the outside and move it to the condenser coil. As it condenses it gives off heat, which transfers to the water cycling through the unit and back to the pool repeatedly.

Heat pump pool heaters are one of the most efficient and effective units out there, but it’s important to let a professional help you to make a final decision. Any pool heater must be sized to meet the needs of your pool and the outdoor climate.
