One of the beautiful things about living in Arizona is the enjoyable climate during the winter months. One of the misconceptions, though, is that Arizona is always hot.

In reality, Phoenicians with pools know that heaters are required to enjoy their investment for much of the year because of the low evening temperatures that make swimming uncomfortable. There are numerous benefits to having a pool heater. Here are five.

 

Extend Your Swim Season 

There is simply no reason to limit pool use in the Phoenix area to April through September. As the evenings cool off, set your heater to comfortable water temperature for a swimming pool and enjoy a pleasant swim. With the right heater, you can reap the benefits of your pool for most of the year.

Enjoy Time with Your Family

80-degrees is a comfortable water temperature for the swimming pool. It helps entice you and your family to spend time together in the comfort of your pool. Play family games and get some exercise at the same time. It doesn’t matter if the air is not at a comfortable swimming temperature as long as the water is warm.

Experience Night Swimming 

In unheated pools, water temperature fluctuates in relation to variations in air temperature. With a heated pool, however, the pool temperature can remain static, no matter the air temperature. This comes in handy in the event you and your family enjoy early morning swims or evening pool parties.

Reap the Benefits of Good Health 

Swimming is a low-impact aerobic workout that is easy on the joints. That is good for you, no matter your age. In addition, swimming for exercise is better in a heated pool because it protects against the stiffness, aches and joint pain that sometimes occurs in cold water. Warm water also soothes sore muscles and provides calming relaxation.

Make the Most of Your Investment 

If a pool is a worthwhile investment that adds value to your home, then a pool with a heater does so even more. A pool heater also generally has low upkeep and maintenance so that you are free to enjoy the warm water and time with friends and family. Occasional service will ensure your pool continues to bring you joy for many years to come.

 

Now that you know about some of the benefits of having a pool heater, you will want to explore which type of heater is right for you. At Aqua Science, we have three different types of pool heaters.

 

Types of Pool Heaters

Electric Heat Pumps

Electric heat pumps maintain consistent temperatures during both cool and hot months. They are also energy efficient.

Solar heater

This is a great way to protect the environment and save money over the long-term. With solar heaters, there is no monthly recurring payment. Also, there are options that can help cool the water in the hot summer months.

Natural Gas

Natural gas heats pools quickly. If the heater has been off for a while and the water is cool, a natural gas heater will warm the water quickly to a comfortable swimming temperature.

As standalone, natural gas heaters are popular with families who don’t swim as frequently and are looking for a quick way to heat their pools when they want to use them.
