Comparing Gas, Solar and Heat Pump Pool Heaters, QLD & Nth NSW
Choosing the right pool heating system for your needs can be a challenging task. A pool owner must consider factors such as budget, size of the pool and the type of energy source best suited to them before investing in equipment. To help pool owners in Queensland make the right decision, Peachy Pools compares the pros and cons of gas, solar and electric pool heating systems.
Pros & Cons of Pool Gas Heating
Here are some of the advantages and disadvantages of pool gas heating systems.
Gas heaters are known for their reliability. Gas heating systems are extremely effective and do not require sunlight or optimal environmental temperature to heat large volumes of water. A powerful gas system is capable of heating a pool much more quicker than any other form of heating. Their effectiveness makes them a popular choice for heating hydrotherapy pools or heating on-demand applications often used for residential spas.
Gas heating systems are powered using fossil fuels that emit fumes and release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. These units can also be quite expensive and very inefficient in the long run.
When it comes to solar heating, the pros far outweigh the cons. Solar units use the sun as an energy source and can generate heat for a pool even in overcast weather. Solar energy is clean, efficient and helps pool owners become energy independent and offer long-term savings. Modern solar pool heating systems are extremely efficient, durable and easy to install on rooftops across Queensland & Northern NSW
Although solar pool heating systems save customers a lot of money, weather dependence can often be a turning point for those wanting a specific temperature no matter the weather or time of the year. If you are living in a region with predominantly overcast weather or your household has a lot of shade over the roof, a solar heating system may not receive enough sunlight to function effectively.
Pros & Cons of Pool Heat Pump
Here are some of the advantages and disadvantages of pool heat pump systems.
Electric pool heating systems are cost-effective solutions because they are powerful and capable of heating large pools relatively quickly. They are easy to set up and work with any kind of indoor or outdoor pool.
Electric pool heaters often require specific a new electric circuit or upgrade to the breaker due to their high power usage. These systems are sometimes costly because of the electricity they consume, which could make them expensive for most pool owners if their property does not have an electric PV Solar Panel System already installed
