Electric pool heaters are a very popular form of heating your pool in Arizona. Also referred to as a heat pump, an air-source electric heat pump will provide consistent temperatures during Arizona’s mild winters. Heat pumps are a reliable source of heating your pool, but offer an additional benefit: you can reverse the heating cycle in the summer and use it as a refrigeration system to cool your pool!
Electric heat pumps are the most cost efficient way to heat your pool. While gas heaters are less expensive upon installation, the monthly cost of natural gas can be cost prohibitive for families that want to swim more often. In fact, heat pumps cost up to six times less than gas heaters and electric resistance heaters per month! Electric heat pumps actually consume very little electricity, as they utilize the outside air temperature to help convert energy.
In addition, the use of an electric heat pump helps the environment! Unlike gas heaters that release carbon dioxide, electric heaters do not emit any gasses, so you are actually reducing carbon in the environment.
