How to Heat the Pool

Make sure to evaluate your pool heater fuel choices. Most marketplace choices are natural or propane gas, electric, solar, or oil-fired. But homeowners will want to choose a heater with a fuel option that the home already have, this strategy void the need to establish a new fuel type from nothing. Unless your home is hydroelectrically supplied, an electric pool heater is much expensive than others.

We can determine and decide on the pool heater size by accumulating the capacity of the pool water per gallon multiplied by the needed level of temperature and the value of 8.33. For instance, a 20,000-gallon pool multiplied by 20-Degree-Fahrenheit rise times 8.33 gives you about 3.3 million British thermal units (Btu) over a 24-hour period. 
Divide the value found in Step 2 by 24. This final number is the number of Btu per hour that the pool heater needs to generate for the pool to reach a comfortable temperature. This Btu value should be taken into account on each pool heater's specification sheet. 
Assess the physical characteristics of the pool heater. The outside housing must be leak-proof and firmly constructed at the seams. Water damage is one of the common main reasons why pool heaters fail.
Select a pool heater model that grants you to adjust the temperature on a thermostat with both a manual and automatic shutdown. You must be able to have a constant pool temperature or an intermittent choice; intermittent settings allow you to heat the pool over a couple of days, like the weekend, but also provides a total shutdown for the remaining days of the week. Unless you are situated in an area where it's warm year-round, there will probably be times when your pool is too cold to enjoy. Having a swimming pool heater is the best thing that lets you control the temperature of your pool and can lengthen the number of days it can be used each year. 
The swimming pool pump disseminates cold water from the pool into the heating system. The water passes through a filter and then straight into a heating chamber. As the water travel through the chamber, heat is drawn out from the heat source and pass on to the water. Then warmed water will go back directly to the pool. Gas heaters can be operated with the use of one or the other, propane gas, or natural gas from the heating chamber. The pool water is heated and warmed once it reaches the heating chamber. While on the other hand, the heat pump uses electricity.  It catches the heat from the surface air and moves it to the cold water as it substitutes from cold to warm. Solar pool heaters disseminate water through collectors that use the heat of the sun as a source. Gas pool heaters are the most common to use but, depending on your location and use, they may not be the most budget-friendly when to differentiate from electric or solar units. Electric heat pump pool heaters are better to befit for use when the outside air temperature is above 50 degrees. The cooler the outside air temperature, the more energy it needs to generate. We also have solar pool water heaters that generally provide a very low operating cost in a year. However, it is only suggested to heat the pool water at roughly 85 degrees. With proper attachment and maintenance, gas pool heaters should at least last five or more years. Electric heat pumps can last more than 10 years. And properly maintained solar pool heating system should work for up to 20 years. The actual lifespan of any swimming pool heater can be decreased by exposure to harsh weather conditions, inconsistent power supply, overuse, or improper operation.
