Benefits of swimming pool heaters

Swimming pools are a big investment in both time and money. Pool heating in Sydney will make it all worth the while. Why? You get to enjoy it whenever you want, all year round! A heated swimming pool will appeal to all age groups and health conditions and therefore increase the use!

The temperature within NSW, particularly Sydney, can not only vary dramatically, but it can also change quickly. It can be hot one day and cold the next. Heating your swimming pool is the solution that enables you to continue with your plans, regardless of the weather conditions.

With a gas heated swimming pool, you won’t need to worry about the weather. If it’s hot you can swim, if it’s cold you can still swim.

While the desired swimming pool temperature in Sydney is 25 to 28 deg C, most can only generally reach around 21-22 degrees without assistance. With a pool heater, you can control the temperature just the way you like it – make it warm, or just take the chill out – the choice is yours.

We live in an age of advancement, and that applies to how you heat your pool as well. Swimming pool heaters are a convenient and effective method of ensuring that your pool remains in use all year, not just in Summer.

What are you waiting for? Get full use of your swimming pool today by having Norwest Gas install your very own gas or electric pool heater.


Electric vs Gas Pool Heaters

Basically, electric heat pumps work in reverse to an air conditioner. The heating system works by extracting latent heat in the air and transferring it into the pool or spa for a low cost and affordable heating option. It is the method opted for when natural gas is not available.

Gas pool heating can raise the pool temperature by 1.5 degrees celsius per hour compared to 1/2 degrees celsius or less per hour with a heat pump. Gas pool heating is the only option that enables you to heat your pool in less than 8 hours regardless of weather conditions and/or if a pool blanket is used.

Electric heat pumps are more effective if they are used with a pool blanket. However, even with such assistance, cannot compete with the time it takes to heat a pool with gas pool heating.

If swimming is required all year round and/or you are looking for a guaranteed temperature, it is recommended that a gas pool heater is used to support the electric heat pump. Alternatively, gas pool heaters can be installed alone and will be able to meet the requirements.

Why are Gas pool heaters preferred?

Gas pool heaters are fast, reliable and efficient. In most cases, they are less expensive than electric or solar systems, and you don’t have to have ugly pipes all over your roof. Usually, the gas pool heating system is installed in one day so you can have a warm pool for an early morning swim the day after installation.

Gas pool heating can be used all year round and in all weather conditions. If you’re having the family over for a BBQ and the weather is a bit ordinary, just push the button the night before and the kids can jump in as soon as they arrive. Try doing that with solar!

Unlike other pool heating options, gas pool heaters do not require a backup system such as electric heat pumps or solar. Gas pool heaters will not disappoint in reaching your desired temperature all year round.


Maintenance and repairs

Norwest Gas also offer a maintenance program, it is recommended that we service your pool heater annually to ensure your heater continues to maintain its efficiency and prolong the life of your heater.
