Is A Gas Heater or Pool Heat Pump Right for You? 

Sunlover Heating New South Wales are experts in pool heating and if you’re wanting to swim all year round, you need to determine what product would be the best investment for you and your pool. Having a pool in your backyard is many homeowners dream and having it a comfortable temperature all year round requires some great heating products.  

An important question to ask before investing in pool heating is whether a Gas Heater or Pool Heat Pump is right for you? There are many factors in deciding which is the best to invest in for your pool.  


Gas heating is ideal for on-demand heating such as in cases of using the pool for a party or general spa heating. It is a popular choice as it raises the temperature of your pool quicky, making it a great choice for those who want a quicker heating option. A Pentair MasterTemp Gas Pool Heater is a great option when you’re needing to heat your pool or spa quickly and occasionally.  

Depending on the size of your pool and the climate you live in a Gas Heater may be the best option. It is important to note that Gas Heaters can potentially use a lot of energy to run which could be costly to operate overtime. If you are only needing to heat your spa or pool occasionally, this would be a good option as it isn’t needed to be running for long periods to heat your pool to the desired temperature. Regular maintenance of your Gas heater is also required to keep it in tip top shape.  


Pool Heat Pumps are also another popular and great option for pool owners. If you’re someone who likes to invest in energy efficient products, an electric heat pump would be a good addition to your pool. Sunlover New South Wales pool heat pumps are also environmentally friendly as they release no emissions. Pool heat pumps can be slower to heat a pool, especially if it is quite a larger pool, so it is best to keep in mind it would take longer than a gas heater. 

If you do live in a colder climate like New South Wales and have quite a sizeable pool, this may not be your top heating system to use. If you also live in an area that has high electricity rates, this may not be a suitable option as it is required to be on longer than that of a gas heater.  

As a general rule, if you are going to heat your pool all year round at a consistent temperature and want to be more efficient and sustainable in the way it is heated, our team can go through these options with you. At Sunlover New South Wales we have a fantastic range of heating options that will suit your needs and personal lifestyle. Depending on the different factors of size, budget, climate, ongoing maintenance, and cost, it is important to make an informed decision.
