If you’re on the fence about getting a pool heater, we get it. After all, it can seem a bit excessive to have a pool heater when we already live in Australia! However, there are very few parts of Australia which offer optimal swimming conditions all year round and many areas are downright cold. That’s where a pool heater comes in. Today, we’ll be looking at just some of the benefits of investing in a pool heat pump.
Extend your swimming season
The best thing about having a pool heater is that you can use the water for longer. At the beginning of the season, the water might look nice but it takes a while for the weather to warm up enough to really enjoy it and then the warm weather seems to leave all too quickly when autumn sets in. A heater means you can get more enjoyment out of your pool as it provides perfectly swimmable conditions.
Perfect for families
If you have kids, you’ll know how much they love the water and hate getting out even if it’s obvious that they’re freezing. Heaters are the perfect family-friendly piece of pool equipment as they take the edge off the chill so your little swimmers can enjoy the water without turning blue. They also provide welcome warmth for parents who have to brave the water to supervise.
Energy efficient options
Pool heaters have an unfortunate reputation for chewing through energy and it’s true that older versions did take their toll on the power bill. However, technology has come a long way and leading brands are offering pool heaters which are highly energy efficient. There are also solar options which harness the power of the sun so you won’t notice a dent in your power bill.
Return on investment
A swimming pool is an investment – it often adds value to a home and is also expensive if you install one yourself. With the additional space it takes up, it makes sense that you want to get some use out of it rather than only swimming for a few weeks over summer. If you have a pool, installing a heater can help you get more out of the water which makes it well worth the cost of the equipment. If you plan to sell in the future, a heated pool can also be a big selling point. For a range of pool heating options, visit us at Pool Assist today.
