Gas Heaters

Gas-fired pool heaters remain the most popular system for heating swimming pools. Today you can find new gas-fired heater models with much higher efficiencies than older models. Still, depending on your climate and pool use, they may not be the most energy-efficient option when compared to heat pump and solar pool heaters.

HOW THEY WORK

Gas pool heaters use either natural gas or propane. As the pump circulates the pool’s water, the water drawn from the pool passes through a filter and then to the heater. The gas burns in the heater’s combustion chamber, generating heat that transfers to the water that’s returned to the pool.

They’re most efficient when heating pools for short periods of time, and they’re ideal for quickly heating pools. Therefore, gas pool heaters can be a good choice for pools that aren’t used on a regular basis. Unlike heat pump and solar pool heaters, gas pool heaters can maintain any desired temperature regardless of the weather or climate.

SELECTING A GAS POOL HEATER

When selecting a gas swimming pool heater, you need to consider the following:

  • Size
  • Efficiency
  • Costs.
  • SIZING A GAS POOL HEATER

You should have a trained pool professional perform a proper sizing analysis for your specific swimming pool to determine pool heater size.
