An outdoor pool is a wonderful luxury for a home. It’s not only a perfect place to relax or exercise, but it’s also a fantastic centerpiece for parties during the summer and adds immensely to the value of your home. You want to get the most use out of your pool as possible during the year. Although you won’t be able to use it during the deeps of winter, you can stretch its use into the cooler months of spring and fall with an effective pool heater —and you’ll be able to enjoy it in the summer evenings as well.
A pool heater is much like other home heating systems: it must have installation from experienced professionals. Baxter Comfort Solutions has more than 75 years of history helping homes in Baxter, IA, and our technicians have the training and experience to make sure you have the perfect heat pump for your pool. We provide heating services to Baxter, IA and in the “golden circle” between Ames, Des Moines, Newton, and Marshalltown.
Most pool heating systems use natural gas, which allows for high levels of heat at low cost. When heating professionals install a new gas–powered pool heater, they must make certain that the heater can handle the pool size. You can’t simply determine this yourself by using the volume of the pool: what’s important is the speed at which heat is lost from the surface of the pool. The pool heater must match this heat loss to be able to replace it and keep the water at a pleasing temperature. The installers will calculate various factors to determine what size of pool heater is required for the job.
A pool heater isn’t much different in operation compared to other heating systems, and just like those systems it can occasionally malfunction and need to have repairs. Don’t make a DIY attempt to fix any problems, especially if the pool heater uses natural gas. (In most jurisdictions it isn’t legal for anyone except a licensed professional to service an appliance connected to a gas line.) Our technicians are glad to come to your home and fix the pool heater so it runs the way it should.
It’s also a smart idea to have maintenance for the pool heater once a year. You can arrange for it during one of your HVAC system maintenance inspections. Just ask us about our regular maintenance plan.
