Have you just built your own pool? With a special heating system, you can enjoy your pool all year round. By following this article, discover the different types of heaters suitable for a pool.
The different types of low-cost pool heaters
Several types of heaters are available to keep the pool water warm. For example, there is the solar heater which requires the use of solar panels. It is ideal in sunny areas. However, you need to provide a large space to accommodate the solar collectors.
As for the solar cover or bubble cover, it is more economical compared to the previously mentioned device. In addition, in a few minutes, it increases the temperature of the pool water. By being installed over the pool, the bubble cover limits water evaporation.
To be able to swim even during windy periods, choose a pool cover. It both heats and maintains the temperature of the pool water.
Other pool heating systems available
Among the many pool heating systems, there is the electric heater. It is perfect for above-ground pools. The disadvantage of this type of heater is that it requires a large amount of energy. To do this, the installation of resistance at the level of the filtration system is essential.
To save energy, use a heat exchanger. It is easy to set up. In addition, using your boiler or heat pump, this type of heating allows you to optimize the temperature of the water in the pool. The heat exchanger is available in several models depending on the volume of water to be heated.
To benefit from an independent heating system, you can use the heat pump. It allows you to use your pool before and after the season. It is installed in the filtration circuit of the pool to obtain a better performance.
Selection criteria for pool heating
Before choosing the right heating system for your pool, consider its use. Will it be used for prolonged swimming, for year-round swimming, or for a second home pool?
Next, consider the features of the heater. Do you prefer a silent, versatile, ecological or economical system? You also need to consider such things as how long it takes to heat up, how efficient it is and how it heats up. Also, be sure to analyze whether it will be used occasionally or only occasionally.
Then, take into account the type of pool you have: outdoor, indoor, above-ground, underground, semi-buried, or buried. The volume of water, the type of water treatment and the lining are also to be considered.
To find the appropriate pool heating system, the installation method and the type of investment are other parameters to take into account. If after all these tips you are still unable to select the right pool heating system, seek professional advice
