Fall Season Means Heater Time!

by | Sep 25, 2018 | Home & Garden

 With cooler air temperatures blowing in of fall, we also get cooler pool water. Oftentimes, this is when most pool owners use their heaters (or install new ones), so it’s a good time to review the basics of pool heaters and their operation.
If you think of buying a pool in the same way you think of buying a new car, see a heater the same way as adding a radio or air conditioning to an automobile. It’s an extra convenience you don’t use all the time, but it adds much more to your enjoyment. With a pool heater you can swim anytime you choose.
Gas Heater: Gas-fired pool heaters remain the most popular system for heating swimming pools, and it’s also one of Alex B Pool Service specialty. Gas swimming pool heaters use gas or propane, depending on the type of heater. The ones that burn natural gas must be hooked up to a gas line, and the ones that burn propane require propane tanks. They’re particularly useful for heating up water quickly, bringing a spa up to 101°F in less than an hour. The burning gas warms a combustion chamber, and the heat that’s produced is then transferred to the pool water. Today you can find new gas-fired heater models with much higher efficiencies than older models. A new gas heater will last six to eight years.
