Should I get a Gas, Electric or Solar Pool or Spa Heater?

There is no right or wrong answer to this question.  You just have to look at the pros and cons.

Gas pool and spa heaters:


  • Quick to heat your water
  • Cheap to run
  • Create less greenhouse gasses than electricity


  • Higher initial cost
  • Gas is required at your property

Electric pool and spa heat pumps:


  • Low maintenance
  • Can be set to run in low tariff times of the day


  • More expensive than gas
  • Create more green house gasses than gas

Solar Pool and Spa heaters:


  • Low maintenance
  • Very cheap to run


  • Extend the use of your pool  by about 2 months per year so can't be used in winter

In a nut shell, gas, solar and electric pool and spa heaters work like an instant host water system at your house.  The water from your pool or spa circulates through the system which heaters the water as it passes through the pipes.  The only difference is where the heat comes from.
