In Canada, a pool heater is virtually a requirement if you want to use your swimming pool for more than just a couple of months out of the year.
With a heater, you can enjoy your pool from spring until fall. A pool heater must be carefully sized to the width, depth, and volume of the pool. The faster a pool is heated, the more powerful the heater needs to be. No matter the dimensions of your pool, spa, or hot tub, you can find a natural gas heater to fit your needs.
There are several types of pool heaters, including natural gas, electric, and solar. The majority of Canadian pool owners use natural gas heaters. All gas heaters are installed by licensed gas contractors at Rep Air Heating and Cooling.
Does the pool need its own gas line?
For safety reasons, yes. A pool heater needs its own gas line so that there is no chance of the pool’s water contaminating the home’s drinking water.
Is a pool heater expensive to operate?
The operating cost of a pool heater will depend on the type of fuel it uses and the current market price of that fuel. Generally speaking, natural gas pool heaters are less expensive to operate than electric pool heaters.
What are the benefits of using a pool heater?
There are many benefits to using a pool heater, including extended pool season, increased pool usage, and improved resale value.
- Extended Pool Season: A pool heater allows you to extend your swimming season by keeping the water warm well into the fall and spring months.
- Increased Pool Usage: Warm water is more inviting than cold water, so you’ll likely find yourself using your pool more often if it has a pool heater.
- Improved Resale Value: If you ever decide to sell your home, potential buyers will be impressed by the fact that your pool has a pool heater. This feature can add value to your home and help it sell faster.
