Winter doesn’t have to mean the end of the swimming season and a slowdown in business. There are various heating options available so you can still enjoy your pool and spa throughout the year. Cont…….
Our final instalment – Gas Heaters
Swimming Pool Gas heaters are used in large numbers on pools and spas and give great flexibility to the pool owner because of their rapid heating ability and robustness.
Swimming Pool Gas heaters can easily maintain any desired water temperature as typical sizing is based on providing heater capacity capable of achieving a 14°C rise in water temperature in 24 hours. This allows a cold pool to be heated to a beautiful 28°C to 30°C in around one day – even in winter. This heating strength makes gas perfectly suited for pools that are used for entertaining.
From the point of view of heating costs, the constant maintenance of pool temperature with gas is quite viable during the warmest months of the year. Whereas the solar-heated pool will vary in temperature during this season, the gas heated pool is maintained at the owner’s preferred temperature. Gas heating costs will be modest, as the heating requirement of the pool is relatively low. Likewise, owners with gas heating have the added flexibility of heating for specific events such as birthday parties or barbecues, or for longer periods such as September school holidays.
A gas heater is ideally suited to be added to a solar heating system, as it will offset solar’s inability to work at night or in poor weather.
