Did you know that the most common source for heating swimming pools has been gas? Many people have been using Deerfield Beach gas pool heating for decades simply because of lower gas prices. However, with pricing fluctuations, new technology, and efficiency, how can you be sure that gas is still the best option for you? For many pool owners, just working with the right team will get you all of the answers you are looking for.
Why Gas Heaters for Pools?
For certain situations, a gas heater will be your best choice. No matter what, you need to remember that a pool heating method that works well for someone may not work for another. Everyone has different swimming pools and environments. When you are working on selecting a heater, you need to go beyond the features alone.
There are two kinds of options for Deerfield Beach gas pool heating, which include natural gas heaters and propane heaters. You will need a propane tank or a natural gas connection to use either of these heating options. Because so many homes are already connected to a natural gas source, installation tends to be less expensive and a bit easier.
If you do not have natural gas hookup already at your home, you will have to get a propane tank that gets filled periodically. Depending on the pricing at the time and in your area, propane is often more expensive than natural gas.
Just like other gas-powered appliances, including water heaters, a gas heater for your swimming pool comes with a combustion chamber that works to heat copper coils. As the pool water gets run throughout the coils, it gets heated before returning to the pool—the air transfers to water that is moving through the exchanger.
Heating Your Pool Water Faster
Because of the design, a pool heater that runs on gas will heat your water faster than other methods. Depending on the heater size, an average unit can boost the pool water temperature anywhere from 2 to 5 degrees per hour. This is one of the main reasons that a gas pool heater is a nice option for any pool that is used sporadically or for a short time.
Gas pool heaters are not impacted by the air temperature around them, unlike an electric heat pump. Additionally, a gas pool heater can operate even when the weather is gloomy, rainy, or cloudy, unlike a solar heater.
