If you’ve been braving the chilly water in your pool, it’s understandable that you’ve considered the idea of having a pool heater installed. We get it – the thought of warm water is pretty appealing! If you’ve been thinking about investing in a pool heater Perth but aren’t sure whether it’s actually necessary, we’re here to help. Today, we’ll tackle some of the most common myths about having a pool heater installed so you can separate fact from fiction.
Myth #1: Pool heaters are expensive to run
When it comes to misconceptions about pool heaters, this one has got to be the most common and so many people stay about from the idea of pool heater due to concerns about cost. It’s true that pool heaters from back in the day did chew through electricity. However, these days there are far more efficient options to choose from, including solar pool heaters, which won’t make a significant dent in your power costs.
Myth #2: Pool heaters aren’t necessary in Australia
Yes, it’s true that the Australian summer means that we welcome the relief of cool water. However, in most parts of Australia the temperatures in the cooler months means that not many of us are willing to brave the water. With a pool heater, you’re able to extend your swimming season and enjoy the water for longer. They’re especially good if you have children who love the water but feel the cold.
Myth #3: Pool heaters are too noisy
This is a valid concern – the last thing you want is to be kept awake all night by a pool heater. However, modern pool heaters tend to make very little noise and won’t interrupt the ambience. If noise is a concern for you, ask your pool technician if they have any recommendations for a heater which makes minimal noise.
Myth #4: Pool heaters are bad for the environment
It’s understandable that some people are concerned about the environmental impact of adding in another power-guzzling piece of equipment to the pool. However, the effect on the environment is minimised thanks to a large number of solar pool heaters which are available on the market and rely on the sun to heat your pool.
