The Most Magnificent Way to Extend Your Swim Season

What if you could extend your swim season deep into autumn and even start it a little earlier? 

Some say the seasons are the best thing about living in the Northeast. Others say the seasons are the worst thing about living in the Northeast. 

We love the seasons! But when autumn comes calling and it gets to be closing time for the swimming pool, well, we at Goodall Pools & Spas can understand both sides.

We offer two fantastic pool heating options: gas pool heaters and heat pumps. Let’s dive into the details and find the perfect solution for your pool!

Gas Pool Heaters: Quick Heating but Not Energy Efficient

Our gas pool heaters, such as the Pentair MasterTemp® and Hayward® Universal H-Series, are known for their ability to heat water quickly using gas or propane. They are perfect for those moments when you want to raise the water temperature for a specific event or during a few weeks in spring and fall. 

However, gas pool heaters are not the most energy-efficient way to extend your swim season, leading many customers to turn them off when not in use due to higher operating costs.

Heat Pumps: The Energy-Efficient Choice to Extend Your Swim Season

Heat pumps, like the Pentair UltraTemp® and Hayward® HeatPro®, use electricity to operate, making them a more economical choice to extend your swim season. 

Though they may have a slightly higher upfront cost, they offer significant energy savings and efficiency. Some electric companies and manufacturers even provide rebates for choosing heat pumps over traditional heaters.

The only downside to heat pumps is that they take longer to heat the water, gradually raising the temperature over a few days. However, once the desired temperature is reached, the heat pump helps maintain it throughout the summer, similar to how a home heat pump operates.

Personal Preference and Available Resources

Choosing between heat pumps and heaters to extend your swim season depends on your personal preferences and available resources. If you only want to heat your water during a couple of key points during the year, like for a party, or a weekend in early spring, and you have access to gas or propane, gas pool heaters may suit your needs.

On the other hand, if you value long-term energy efficiency and cost savings, heat pumps are the way to go. They provide gradual heating, resulting in a more environmentally friendly approach while maintaining your pool temperature throughout the season.

At Goodall Pools & Spas, we take pride in offering a wide range of pool heating options to cater to your needs. Whether you prefer the quick heating of gas pool heaters or the energy-efficient performance of heat pumps, rest assured that your swimming experience will always be enjoyable. 

The Ultimate Swim Season Experience

Imagine the delight of lounging in your pool, sipping on a refreshing drink, as the autumn leaves gently fall around you. Thanks to the incredible pool heating options offered by Goodall Pools & Spas, you can extend your swim season and make this daydream your reality

With gas pool heaters and heat pumps at your disposal, you have the power to transform your swim season into an unforgettable experience. Embrace the changing seasons and extend your swim season with a warm, inviting pool that beckons you to dive in no matter the weather.
