Electric pool heaters more commonly known as pool pumps are one of the more popular pool heater options on the market. This type of heat pump heats your pool by sucking warm water into a heating tank and then flushing it out into your swimming pool. The constant exchange of warm and cold water will keep your pool nice to swim in year-round!
While we know there are plenty of pool heater options out there, today we’ll be taking a closer look at the benefits of an electric pool pump and why it is one of the best options.
The Cost is Low
An Electric Pool pump is a far less expensive upfront than a gas or solar pool heater option. However, the use of your electric pool pump will determine the cost each month. So we always recommend moderating the use of your electric pool heater, turn it off when you aren’t swimming in order to save some money.
Electric Pool Heaters Can Heat and Cool Your Pool
Unlike other pool heaters, electric pool pumps can heat and cool your pool. While wanting to “cool” your pool isn’t that common, sometimes on a very hot day, this is a possibility, especially if you do not have your pool screened in. This is a valuable feature in areas with extremely hot temperatures, where the summer sun often heats pool water to temperatures similar to a hot tub. However, more commonly they can heat your pool very quickly in the colder winter months to that hot tub temperature you are looking for!
Electric Pool Heaters Are Reliable
>Another pro for an electric pool heater is that they are very reliable and can last up to 15 years if taken care of properly. Many people say the most reliable pool heater you can have is an electric one! This is because solar panels are dependent on the amount of sun they receive and gas heaters can be affected by extreme temperatures. Electric heat pumps do not have to worry about any of these issues, and can be run any time of the year, no matter the conditions outside.
