We service and replace all brands of residential and commercial pool heaters, whether natural gas, liquid propane or electric.
Indoor or outdoor installations are no problem. Feel free to call Don for help with questions about pool heaters, and ask about our premium equipment and warranty. For new installations, pool heater size and type are determined by the following factors:
- Square footage of exposed water surface
- Above ground or in ground style
- Type of construction (plaster/gunnite, vinyl liner, fiberglass, etc.)
- Indoor or outdoor
- Exposure to weather and seasonal conditions
- Covered or open
- Availability and cost of power (gas, propane or electric)
- Homeowners desire for balancing performance and economy
Types of pool heaters:
Solar panels: The Pros are solar is less expensive to heat with, environmentally friendly and has a mid range installation cost. The Cons are a slow heating rate, limitations due to season and weather, probable pump and plumbing upgrade requirements, a dedicated surface necessary for mounting large panels, and a separate plumbing and temperature control system.
Heat Pumps: The Pros are heat pumps use about one tenth of the energy cost of gas or electric, are environmentally friendly, and have a self contained temperature control system. The Cons are they require 40-60 amp electrical service, perform at a minimum ambient air temperature, need a strategic outdoor location, and have an expensive initial installation cost.
Natural Gas/Liquid Propane: The Pros are gas heaters are quickest to heat, within the medium price range, very versatile to install indoors or outdoors, not dependent on weather or seasonal conditions, and able to heat your pool and spa simultaneously with just one heater. The Cons are they require fossil fuel, and have a mid range operating economy. Pictured: a natural gas heater configured for outdoor installation: Raypak
Full Electric: The Pros are Electric is a more environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuel heaters and has a self-contained temperature control system. The Cons are an expensive initial cost and the highest operating cost. Electric also takes a very large electrical service and is the most vulnerable heater type to poor chemical management.
