Seasonal or All-Year Pool Heating – Knowing Which Heater to Choose

Installing a pool or getting your current one up and running can be an expensive mission that leaves you wanting to get the most use as the season progresses. The best way to extend the swimming season is to invest in the right heater for your usage, but before you can you need to decide how many months of the year you want to swim for. From regular season to extended season heaters and even all-year options, we have the information you need to help you make the right choice.

Standard Season Heaters

If you just want to swim during the summer months before covering your pool until next year then choosing a standard pool heater will work well for you. These heaters come in all shapes and sizes and can be a good addition if you want to swim early in the morning or late at night when the sun is no longer beating down. They are also cheaper to run than extended or all-year options as they won’t be used as much and offer an affordable solution when budget is important.

Who This is Best For?

If you aren’t going to be using your pool constantly or you are planning to stick to swimming only on hot days then a standard pool heater is a great idea and gives you the ability to take the chill off the water when you want to dive in.

Extended Season Heaters

There are many reasons why you may want to invest in a more powerful heater, including the ability to extend your swimming season. These heaters will give you the opportunity to open your pool earlier in the year and close it down only as autumn approaches. They are also a great option if you want to be confident that your pool can be enjoyed even when the summer days become overcast and chilly.

Who This is Best For?

Extended season heaters are great for pools that don’t get much natural sunlight as well for people who want to jump in during the early or late hours. They are also great if you have a family who wants to swim with you but who will not get into a cold pool!

  • Gas or oil boilers
  • Electric heaters
  • Air source heat pumps

All-Year Heaters

If money is no object and you are keen to swim all year round then you will need to be willing to pay for a top-of-the-range heating solution. These heaters tend to be larger and cost more to run but offer the ability to keep your pool warm even in the coldest months.

Who This is Best For?

All-season heating is great if swimming is your only exercise and if you want to be able to jump in whenever it suits your schedule. It’s also great for any pro-swimmers who want to be able to practice from home.

The Types of Heaters Available

When it comes to all-season heating, you will need to be prepared to pay for a powerful product that has the capabilities you need. Some of the best options include:
