Electric pool heater information and compare pool equipment, gas vs. electric water heater for safety and ultra clean technology.
Electric swimming pool heaters are similar to a hot water tank for your home.
The water is warmed by emitting an electrical current to the heater coils.
As the water passes over the coils it becomes warm, and that warm water goes into the pool.
Now your family and friends can swim earlier and later during the swimming season, even on those not-so-warm days.
You may not need a pool water heater, but a good electric swimming pool heater may be helpful in getting the most out of your pool.
Today, electric swimming pool heaters are very well made and should last a long time.
They have quality components, are very functional, and have wonderful safety functions. Some very popular models are the Raypak pool heaters.
As compared to a propane pool heater, solar swimming pool heaters, wood pool heater, or natural gas pool heaters, using an electric swimming pool heater is a slow process. Some may say that because of the cost of electricity in parts of the country, an electric heater may be a poor choice.

Swimming Pool Solar Heater - Solar swimming pool heaters are also an excellent way to save on your energy and pool costs.
This one is pretty easy. For a normal rectangle pool, about 14X30 or less, you’ll probably need an 80,000 BTU electric swimming pool heater or larger.
For a larger pool, about 18 x 36 or over, you’ll need a 100,000 BTU unit or larger. It’s better to go just a hair bigger because you’ll want a slight “buffer” if the temperature suddenly dips down a few degrees.
If you’re looking for the best pool heater (above ground swimming pool heater) and your pool is less than 22 ft., you could use an 80,000 BTU unit. For round pools wider than 30 feet, a heater with at least 100,000 BTU electric pool heater is recommended.
If you have a solar cover, which I recommend, you can use the same size heater up to 30 ft. around. Any pools larger than 30 ft. and you may want to consider a 100,000 BTU electric pool heater unit, or larger.
Using a solar cover saves on chemicals, help keep down water evaporation, heats the pool even faster, and saves on swimming pool maintenance.
When you’re serious about looking around at the many electric swimming pool heaters available, you may want to ask these questions:
