Pool owners who want to extend the swimming season even after the onset of winter should install a gas pool heater. These increase the temperature of the water in the pool, thus making it possible to swim even in the colder months of the year. Water passes into the heater through the filter and is warmed in its combustion chamber. It is then passed back into the pool, allowing you to swim in comfortably warm water.
Your in-ground pool is a great pleasure to your entire family…3 months out of the year. Installing a pool heater will allow your family to use your pool heater in times of cool weather as well as hot. Gas heaters are measured in BTUs, a unit of energy needed to heat water. The number of BTUs for your pool heater will be directly proportional to the size of the pool in gallons and the surface area of the water.
