Why you should invest in a pool heater

The cooler months are upon us in Florida but you can still enjoy a dip in the pool every now and then too. If your pool is one of the popular areas that your neighbors love to hang out, you need a pool heater to keep your pool warm for when that weather gets a little chilly during the day or night. So, now that you’ve decided that you want a heater in your pool, how do you get one? Who can you trust to install it properly and what are your heating options? Below, you will find some questions and tips for choosing the right pool heater for you.

What are my options?

Heating a pooling is more in-depth than you think because you have many options to choose from based on the type of pool that you have. An electric heater is actually a form of solar heating where it pulls the heat from the air when the sun is out. Gas outdoor heaters use natural or propane and burn fuel in a chamber while the pool water runs through copper coils to return warm water to your pool. Solar heaters are energy efficient and quite popular. These heaters use the suns energy to circulate water through an existing pool pump that is located on the roof or in the yard.

Swim at your own leisure

Pool heaters are a beneficial investment especially because you can stretch your pool season by twice as much, longer than most (geographical) areas. Since Florida generally doesn’t have to worry too much about cold weather, a heated pool will come in handy for those months that are pretty chilly.

How much heat do you need?

If you only want to heat up to 10 degrees in your pool, you can install any heater except gas. A gas heater will allow up to 40 degrees, like a hot tub. For cooler nights that can get as low as 50 degrees, even in a tropical setting, a gas outdoor heater for your pool will do justice.

What’s my cost?

These three heaters will vary in cost and will depend on how often you use your heater. Electric pumps can be less expensive than gas pumps, saving you $5 dollars each use. Gas outdoor heaters will also vary in price depending on how often you use the pool. You could cut your bill in half by using a solar blanket throughout the day, naturally heating the pool and ultimately using less gas to heat it completely. Lastly, solar heating would be least expensive because you are solely depending on the heat from the sun to raise the temperature in the pool. You will need to keep your water filtering through the pool to regulate the water so the only operating cost would come from using the solar heating panels.

 

Whether it’s just you or you and your family that enjoy your pool year round, it comes down to how often you sue your pool to determine which heater will benefit you.

Advantages of Propane Gas 150 150 Elite Gas

Advantages of Propane Gas

We’d like to kick off this first post by welcoming you to the Elite Gas blog. We intend to provide you with tips, news, and other information related to propane gas, energy use, and outdoor activities.

To start things off, we would like to first get to one of the more important questions: why propane? There are many advantages to choosing to use propane gas over other forms of energy like charcoal and electricity. We’re going to take time to highlight some of those benefits here.

Propane is Economical

One of the biggest advantages to propane is in terms of cost. In terms of BTUs (a measure of heat energy) to dollars spent, nothing beats out propane. Since you probably won’t be worried about heating your home for most of the year, the primary place these savings are realized are in the kitchen. Propane stoves, grills, and other cooking appliances are able to heat your food for far less than electric equivalents would cost you.

These savings are especially important for restaurants where even a few dollars per hour saved running a stove can mean the difference between turning a profit and breaking even.

Heating Efficiency

Since propane is so efficient at what it does, that means it can heat things much quicker than electricity can. This is important when cooking or when heating a home. The use of a propane gas grill can help you grill up burgers more quickly, serving hungry guests far more efficiently. This is why the propane grill is as much a staple of the backyard barbeque as burgers, hot dogs, and aprons with funny slogans emblazoned on the front.

Propane is Plentiful

One of the major concerns with oil is the simple fact that we are running out. Propane, however, is in plentiful supply. This is part of the reason why it is so economical – we have a lot of it. Furthermore, since 90% of all propane is produced in the US, making use of propane will reduce dependency on foreign oil. In short, switching to propane will help to make the present energy crisis far easier to manage.

Long Term Storage

One of the great things about propane is how long you can keep it in storage for. Tanks require little in the way of maintenance and can last 40 years. This means if you stock up on propane but do not have any immediate plans for use that’s fine none of the money is wasted! You can sit on a few tanks of propane gas until they’re needed for as long as you need to… well… assuming you expect that need to happen before you retire.

Environmental Friendliness

Propane gas produces far fewer hydrocarbons than gasoline, and the gas it releases is non-toxic. This is why propane is recognized as a “green” energy, and has been since 1992. As such, if you are concerned about the environment you can be assured that using propane will give you a smaller carbon footprint than if you burn the same amount of electricity.

Ultimately, there are many reasons why propane is one of your best options for your heating and cooking needs. If we’ve convinced you, feel free to get in touch with us and we can set up your propane system.
