Capture Florida’s Warm Air Efficiently with a Swimming Pool Heat Pump
Swimming pool heat pumps capture warm air and transfer it to your pool. Heat pumps work best in air temperatures above 50°F and provide very effective heating in South Florida’s mild climate. These heaters have no temperature limitations during cool winter months, are not impacted during cloudy weather, and can heat at night offering more consistent heating than a solar pool heater. Heat pumps are less costly to operate than gas heaters and work without fossil fuels. We can install any brand heater but recommend using a local manufacturer to ensure prompt service, repairs, and maintenance when you need it.
Electric Pool Heater Investment
Electric pool heat pumps are sized based on your specific needs using factors such as your pool size, temperature expectations, and cover use. The cost of installing a high-quality heat pump is comparable to installing a solar pool heater, approximately $3000.00 to $4500.00. Annual operation costs will vary based on temperature settings, unit efficiency, and pool cover use during cooler months. Heat pumps require annual check-ups and with proper maintenance will provide up to 10 years of worry-free operation.

Gas Pool Heating – Unlimited Temperature, With Quick Results
Gas Pool Heaters use either propane or natural gas. As the pool pump circulates, water passes through the heater combustion chamber, which super-heats the water and returns to the pool. Gas heaters are best when you require a warm spa or year-round warm pool temperatures (85-104˚F) regardless of the weather or climate. This might be important if you have an in-ground spa or swim for therapeutic exercise. A gas heater is currently the most expensive way to heat your pool. It is best when installed as a hybrid system or a backup heat source to supplement a primary solar pool heater or pool heat pump.
Hybrid Pool Heating – Best of Both Worlds
If high energy or gas bills prevent you from using your pool heater and enjoying your pool as often as you would like, add a solar system to create a hybrid heating system and stop worrying about high heating costs. In a hybrid system, solar is the primary source of heat, and the existing heater provides backup heat only when needed to achieve desired temperatures. Since solar energy is free, this enables you to significantly reduce your operating costs compared to using a gas or electric heater alone.
