Heat Pump vs Electric Pool Heater

When it comes to finding the perfect pool heater, there are multiple options on the market today. However, not all pool heaters are created equal — especially when you consider a heat pump vs. electric pool heater. And although both use electricity to operate, the way that they use that electricity and the amount of electricity used is vastly different. Discover the option that offers efficiency and performance at a cost you’ll love.

Electric Pool Heaters

An electric pool heater is often an attractive option to pool owners due to the price tag upfront. However, you will quickly find that it comes with operating expenses that may surprise you. Electric heaters use resistance heat to heat the water, which means that you will be paying a high price for each kilowatt-hour of power used. Not to mention, these heaters are often much less efficient than heat pumps, meaning that you will spend even more money on electricity in order to keep your pool heated. As the lifetime of an electric pool heater increases, heat output can decrease, costing you more and more money as the years go by and the price of electricity continues to rise.

AquaComfort Solutions’ Heat Pumps

In comparison, an AquaComfort heat pump is a highly efficient and cost-effective way to heat your pool. Although electricity is used to power your heat pump equipment, it is not used to heat your water. That’s because, unlike electric heaters which simply heat the water directly, heat pumps move heat from one location to another with energy-efficient precision. This means that they are able to capture heat that is already present in the air around your pool equipment, making them less expensive to operate as they draw in existing heat and convert it into usable heat for your pool water. This pool heat management option means incredible efficiency, low operational costs, and optimal performance that won’t decrease as your heat pump ages. And with minimal electricity used to run the equipment, electrical costs can be minimized to a fraction of the cost of an electric pool heater.

At the end of the day, heat pumps offer a more efficient and cost-effective way to heat your pool compared to electric pool heaters.

Whether you are looking for maximum heat output or want to save big on your energy bills, AquaComfort Solutions’ heat pumps are the clear winner. Enjoy lasting savings and exceptional performance swim season after beautiful swim season.
