Pentair Pool and Spa Heaters
What should I consider when selecting a new pool heater?
Pool heaters are a wonderful convenience in the cold New Hampshire climate. We typically only have a couple of months of a real summer season. By the time the pool warms up naturally from the weather, the time we have to enjoy it is reduced. A pool heat pump can be a great investment so that you can use your pool for a longer amount of days during the season. Or of course, if you wanted to use your pool year-round, a heat pump is a must even for indoor pools. There are several great options for pool heaters and you should consider the usage of your pool before you decide.
What is your existing fuel type or what fuel sources do you have in your home to power the pool heaters? Is it propane, natural gas, or oil? There are advantages and disadvantages to each heater, whether heat pump or gas unit, but the type of fuel helps narrow down the options.
Usage and Recovery
This is possibly the most important thing to consider. Are you looking to maintain a constant warm temperature or are you looking for an occasional warm up the pool a bit? This will indicate the type of pool heaters you should look at. A heat pump is built for a lower recovery than a gas unit. Heat pumps are generally far more efficient but gas gets you warmed up quickly. This is important to decide which you are more likely to benefit from.
Types of Pool Heat Pump
We are your local experts in pool heat pump and heater installation. We specialize in the installation of Pentair brand pool heaters, known for their energy efficiency and durability.
When it comes to keeping your pool at the perfect temperature, there are a few options to choose from. Gas pool heaters are a popular choice, using natural gas or propane to quickly heat your pool. However, heat pump pool heaters are becoming increasingly popular due to their energy efficiency and cost savings. Heat pumps work by extracting heat from the air or ground and transferring it to your pool water, making them a great option for those looking to reduce their energy costs.

To help you make an informed decision about your pool heater, we’ve compiled a list of six frequently asked questions about pool heaters:
It depends on the size of your pool, the type of heater you have, and the current temperature of the water. A heat pump pool heater can take anywhere from 12-24 hours to heat a pool, while a gas pool heater can heat a pool in a matter of hours.
You should be able to feel the water temperature increase, and the water should be heated to your desired temperature. If your pool is not reaching your desired temperature, or if the heater is making strange noises, it may be time for a professional inspection.
The lifespan of a pool heater can vary depending on the type of heater and how well it is maintained. Gas pool heaters typically have a lifespan of 8-12 years, while heat pump pool heaters can last up to 15 years.
The cost of installing a pool heater can vary depending on the type of heater and the size of your pool. On average, a heat pump pool heater can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $7,000, while a gas pool heater can cost up to $9,000.
It is recommended that you have your pool heater serviced annually to ensure that it is working properly and to catch any potential issues before they become major problems.
While it is possible to install a pool heater yourself, it is highly recommended that you have a professional install it to ensure that it is done correctly and safely.
