A gas pool heater will keep your swimming pool at its desired temperature all year long
Going swimming is perhaps the best way to beat the summer heat. But what happens when temperatures start to drop? No more swimming? Well, no! If you love to swim, any day of the year can be your day to ‘splash around’ in your pool. To achieve this all you need is an efficient pool heating system.
Although there are different varieties of swimming pool heating systems available in the market today (electric heaters, pool heat pumps, solar heaters, etc.), pool gas heaters continue to be the first choice among most Australian pool owners.
Why should you buy a gas pool heater?
Gas pool heaters provide a great way to heat your pool and keep the water at a pleasant temperature to maximise every swimming experience. With their cost and efficiency benefits, swimming pool gas heaters are a great alternative to more costly electric heaters and come with many impressive features. Considering today’s economy and the current cost of electricity, gas pool heaters present an excellent option for every swimming pool owner. Besides, gas heaters are quiet, compact, a lot more environmentally friendly, and boast a rustproof composite exterior designed to adapt to Australia’s unpredictable climates.
Choosing the right gas pool heater
If you are currently in the market for a gas pool heater, you quite possibly might be a little overwhelmed by the choices available and the terminology used to describe them as well as all the numbers suddenly thrown at you. At times is can be hard to make sense of it all? How can you be sure you are making the right decision when it comes to heating your pool?
When choosing the right gas pool heater, there are only three key factors you will need to consider: size, efficiency, and brand.
· Size: Gas pool heaters are sized to the pool’s total surface area and the difference between air and pool temperature. Sizing a gas pool heater for an outdoor pool also requires careful consideration of things such as wind exposure, humidity levels, and overnight temperatures, as these may impact a gas pool heater’s average output.
· Efficiency: A pool heater’s efficiency is measured as a ratio of usable output to energy input. For example, gas pool heaters with an efficiency of 80% produce $80 worth of usable heat for every $100 worth of fuel consumed. This efficiency percentage is often prominently displayed on units’ nameplates and can be easily retrieved from their manufacturer’s website as well.
· Brand: Many brands manufacture high-quality gas pool heaters, but AstralPool’s range constantly tops the ratings as the most durable and efficient gas pool heaters. Powerful, convenient, efficient and cost-effective, AstralPool’s range (HX, JX, Viron and HiNRG pool heaters) will extend your swim season long after the balmy summer months have come and gone.
All things considered, it is wise to do your research before making your final decision. With the right knowledge and some elementary mathematics, you can work out which gas pool heater will suit your pool and what the cost is going to be. The ability to use your pool more, perhaps even year round, should justify the cost to install and run a gas pool heater. Just use a little thought and don’t let the jargon get the better of you.
Gas pool heaters are an excellent all-round way to increase the temperature of your swimming pool. They will raise the temperature quickly on demand and will operate at temperatures below freezing. They are simple and have quite a decent life expectancy when properly maintained. Gas pool heaters are reasonably cost-effective both to initially purchase and to run when combined with the use of a pool cover. With the right advice on selection, a gas swimming pool heater will give you a long and satisfying swimming season without a major dent in your bank balance.
