A pool heater is a long-term investment. The most important factors to consider are:
- Initial price (including installation): Did you know that some fossil fuel heaters such as natural gas heaters, though the heater is lower priced than a heat pump, can cost $1000 to $2000 more to install than a heat pump?
- Operating costs: Did you know that fossil fuel heaters (natural gas, propane and oil fired) cost 4-5 times more to heat your pool than a heat pump? See our Heating Cost Comparison for details.
- Ease of operation and maintenance.
- Product life expectancy: Did you know that the life expectancy of a heat pump is twice that of a fossil fuel heater?
- Attractive, durable design: Does the heater compliment your pool/patio design?
A swimming pool heat pump removes “FREE HEAT” from the air and transfers it to the freon via an evaporator. The heated freon passes through the heat exchanger where the heat is transferred to the pool water. The main reason heat pumps are becoming so popular is that they are efficient and effective, offering very significant operating cost savings compared to fossil fuel heaters.
