Why You Should Use Propane to Heat Your Pool in MA & CT

Most people think of gas grills when they consider outdoor uses of propane. While grilling is a popular use of propane, propane is a highly versatile fuel that can be used with many appliances. Did you know you can use propane to heat your pool? While it may be blazing hot outside, your pool water might be ice cold, deterring you from going in. With a propane pool heater, you can keep the temperature exactly where you want it. Using a propane heater for your pool comes with a number of benefits:

  • Easy to install and maintain
  • Durable
  • Eco friendly
  • Highly efficient
  • Extends pool season

Heating your pool with propane comes with several advantages over other types of heaters. For example, with electric heat pumps, the pump pulls heat from the air to warm the pool, which may not get the water as warm as you’re expecting, and heating takes much longer than it would with propane. Also, solar pool heaters require a system that’s equal to at least 50% of the pool’s surface, and the pump, which is electric, must run for the heater to work, possibly raising your electric bill. Propane is an easy, hassle-free way to get your pool heated fast without digging too much into your budget.
