Are you someone who feels like you aren’t getting that much use out of your pool year-round? Do you only spend one summer season swimming and then close it up for the rest of the year? If this is you, and you want to enjoy your swimming pool more we highly recommend investing in a pool heater. However, that’s the problem. Investing? What is the price of pool heaters? How much will it actually cost?
While investing in a pool heater might seem like a lot up front, it helps you maximize your investment by being able to use your pool for much more of the year. Between setup and operating costs, a pool heater costs between $300 and $5,000, with the average cost around $2,000. However today, we’ll be explaining more the cost of each different pool heater you can invest in.
Solar Pool Heaters
If your home is in a sunny state such as Florida, a solar pool heater may be the best option for you. A solar pool heater is free to run because they run entirely on solar energy, so that’s why it’s a good idea if you live in a sunny state! While the cost of them to run is free, and they will save you money in the long run, the investment is more upfront. The initial pool heater cost of a solar pool system in Orlando can be anywhere from $3,000 and $4,000 to buy and install, however, the cost also depends on the size of your pool. You’ll need an area of solar panels that spans at least half the surface area of your pool.
While it’s not the cheapest option upfront, you will see a return on your investment over the years.
Gas Pool Heaters
Gas pool heaters are known to heat your pool up very efficiently. They aren’t the eco-friendliest option, but if you are looking for a type of pool heater that can heat your pool up within minutes, we recommend going with a gas pool heater. A gas pool heater cost is anywhere between $2,000 to $2,800. Additionally, they can cost between $300 and $500 a month to operate.
Electric Pump Pool Heaters
The last type of pool heater we will cover today is an electric pump. They run on electricity and can be effective in both sunny or shaded environments. An electric heat pump can cost between $2,000 and $7,000
and up. However, you’ll save a lot of money long-term with the lower monthly operating costs typically costing around $50
or more per month to operate
