What Is the Best Heater for An Above Ground Pool?
With energy prices on the rise, carefully considering the type of heater you purchase is wise. Here at 1st Direct Pools, we are dedicated to offering our customers plenty of choices.
Our selection of above ground pool heaters consists of the following:
- Electric heaters
- Heat humps
- Solar heaters
Gas Pool Heaters
Gas heaters are noted for their time efficiency and are generally suited for those living in colder climates as they don't depend on warm air or solar power to work.
Electric Pool Heaters
Above ground pool heaters also come in an electric powered variety. Electric heaters are incredibly reliable and efficient at heating swimming pools, saving much more on energy costs than a gas heater.
Solar Pool Heaters
Solar pool heaters are extremely cost-effective and environmentally friendly as they use the sun’s renewable energy to generate heat for your pool water. The most obvious downside is that it depends on consistent sunny weather to work, which is a bit of a pipe dream with British weather.
We recommend purchasing this above ground pool heater system in conjunction with another type so you can take advantage of the full blast of the summer sun and switch to an electric or gas heater during colder seasons.
Please remember that any of these options will be more effective with a good quality solar cover to lock the heat in the pool!
