If you’re lucky enough to have a pool heater in place, you don’t need to worry about contending with chilly water and it also helps to extend your swimming season well beyond the summer months. However, many people worry that their pool heater is impacting on their electricity bill. If that sounds like you, we’re here to share out tips for making your pool heater run more efficiently.
Manage your temperature
Although it’s tempting to crank up the heat of your pool, even a couple of degrees can make a big difference to energy efficiency. The optimal temperature of your pool is generally anywhere between 26 and 28 degrees but remember to lower the temperature when the pool isn’t in use if you want to keep your heater running.
Use a pool cover
A pool cover is almost a necessity to be used in conjunction with a heater. Using a pool cover means that you can run your heater at a lower temperature and the water will stay warmer for longer. Invest in a good quality pool cover and you’ll find your heating costs dramatically reduced!
Choose an energy-efficient heater
If you don’t have a pool heater in place yet or are looking to update your old system, the best thing you can do for optimal efficiency is to install a good quality heating system. Although options such as solar heaters and heat pumps tend to be more expensive with the initial outlay, they are also very energy efficient and inexpensive to run which leads to long term savings.
One of the best ways to ensure that your heater is running efficiently is to have regular professional maintenance from a certified technician at least once a season. Heaters are one of the more complicated pieces of pool equipment and your technician will able to inspect everything to confirm that it’s running optimally. If you suspect there are issues with your heater, contact your technician as soon as possible to avoid bigger problems developing.
