Gas vs. Electric Above Ground Swimming Pool Heaters
Swimming pool heaters use either gas (natural or propane) or electricity to heat the water before returning it into the pool. Electric and gas pool heaters heat your pool water quickly but tend to vary in upfront and long-term cost.
For instance, a gas above ground swimming pool heater generally costs less than an electric heater to install but more to operate over the long term, costing about $200-$400
per month to run, compared to $100 to $200 to run an electric heat pump.
Of course, this average can vary, depending on how often you run your heater and the cost of gas, propane, or electricity in your area. It always helps to compare these costs before deciding which type of above ground pool heater you choose. With that being said, gas above ground pool heaters are still the more popular heater choice compared to their electric counterpart.
If you do not have a gas line readily available, an electric above ground swimming pool heater makes warming your water simple as well. Of course, Choosing the Right Pool Heater
for Your Pool will ultimately come down to your preference.
Alternative Pool Heating Options
If affordability poses a problem, you could always consider covering your pool with a solar cover
, especially if you live in a warmer climate or don't use your pool frequently enough to justify an above ground pool heater purchase.
