Types of Pool Heaters
If you want to extend your swimming season (and in Fort Lauderdale, why wouldn’t you?), you have options. There are different heating units for different types of pools and different sizes and efficiency ratings, but we can help you sort through all that.
- Gas Heaters — Gas-powered pool heaters can be a good option if you have a large pool or want to keep your pool at a higher temperature outside the peak season. They can burn through fuel quickly, however, so they can prove rather costly.
- Heat Pumps — Electric heat pumps draw heat from the air to warm your pool. They are environmentally friendly because they use less energy than their gas or electric counterparts. They can cost more than a gas heater, but they will save you money in decreased energy costs in the long run.
- Electric Heaters — Electric pool heaters don’t rely on the surrounding air temperature to heat, but like their gas cousins, they use a lot of energy compared to heat pump systems. Typically, these are reserved for when gas is not available or small pools or spas that may only require intermittent heating.

Frequently Asked Questions
What size heat pump do I need for my pool?
Calculating the correct size heat pump for your pool depends on many variables including the area of the pool, average air temperature, humidity levels, wind exposure, and overnight temperatures. A general formula you can use to calculate the BTU output of the unit you will need is pool area x temperature rise (difference desired pool temperature and average ambient temperature) x 12.
How much does it cost to heat a pool with a heat pump?
The costs involved in heating your pool vary a lot based on the size, specific location, and type of pool heater you choose. Whether you use a pool cover also makes a big difference. For a pool around 1,000 square feet, it’s estimated that using a heat pump would cost about $125 per month on average to keep the pool at 78°F. Using a cover reduces average costs to only about $25 per month.
How long do pool heaters generally last?
With proper maintenance, your pool heater can last for years. Our techs will ensure that everything is set up properly to get you running smoothly from the start, and we’re available to provide whatever maintenance your unit needs.
How quickly can a pool heater heat my pool?
The length of time required to heat your pool depends on the size of your pool, desired pool temperature, air temperature, wind, humidity, and the size and type of your pool heater. Gas units can heat up your pool quickest, typically within 8–12 hours for a 20° rise. Heat pumps will take 24 hours or longer to achieve the same increase.
Do pool heaters require any special electrical or plumbing modifications?
Depending on the type of heating system you choose, your system may require modifications to your pool area. Heat pumps are generally the easiest to work with since they require the least energy to run.
Can I retrofit an existing pool with a new heating system?
Absolutely! We specialize in seamlessly integrating new heating systems into your existing pool setup.
