One of the most popular ways of heating a swimming pool is a gas-powered pool heater. They are great for quick heating and can maintain your desired water temperature no matter how cold the weather may be.
This type of heater is made up of several copper tubes that run back and forth above a burner tray. The tubes are warmed by the ignited gas, and filtered water runs through them. As the water travels through the pipes, it absorbs heat as it returns to the pool.
Any type of gas line installation, however, requires the expertise of a professional. At Reliable Electrical Services, we will have your line up and running quickly and efficiently so that you can start enjoying your pool regardless of the temperature outside.
How to Select the Right Size of Gas Pool Heater in South Florida
There are a few important considerations when determining the gas pool heater that is right for you, with one of the biggest being the size. There are several factors that go into determining the correct size, so you should have a professional help. Here are some of those factors:
- The size of heater that you need largely depends on the surface area of your pool. However, it also depends on the difference between the average air temperature and the temperature of your pool.
- The heating load of your device will be largely dependent on other factors, including the humidity level, the temperature at night, and the typical speed of the wind. If you are in an area that has lower humidity and average wind speeds, and the weather typically turns fairly cool at night in the fall and winter, then you’d need a larger heater.
- The larger the heater you need, the larger the gas line will need to be. At Reliable Electrical Services, we will make sure that your gas line installation goes smoothly and is the exact size needed for your heater.
- Your heater’s efficiency will depend a great deal on the quality of the installation. Not only will you need to hire a technician to install your heater, you’ll also want a technician to help make sure the model is properly maintained.
