Spa pools are mainly used for relaxation purposes and therefore it is common to have a heating system installed in them. Spa pool heaters not only provide a comfortable soothing experience that is perfect for unwinding after a long day, they also extend the season of the spa pool so that they can still be used during a cold weather.

The normal range to which a spa pool is heated is 97 to 102 degrees. This is considerably higher than the normal temperature of a swimming pool but spa pools are much smaller, typically not more than eight square feet and less than four feet deep. As a result the requirements for a heating system are less than those of a swimming pool.

There are four main types of spa pool heaters that are available today. The most popular ones are gas heaters which use propane gas or natural gas to heat spa pools. Many heaters such as the Raypak 2100, Raypack Millivolt and Laars Lite can be used to heat a spa or pool.

In a gas heater the water is channelled through a heat exchanger and then back to the pool. An oil fired heater is very similar but uses diesel as the energy source. Your choice of fuel type may be determined by your domestic heating, for example if you are already storing diesel for that purpose then it may be sensible to also use it for the spa heater.

An alternative is an electric spa heater. The electric heater has a slower heating and recovery time than the gas heater and it requires a high amp circuit to operate. Because of this, it is only advisable to use electric heaters on smaller spa pools to save on the heating costs. Electric heaters work in much the same way as gas heaters in that they heat the water directly.

Because of the popularity of being “green” these days, the environmentally friendly spa pool heaters are quickly starting to gain a following. The choice here is between solar heating systems and heat pumps. Solar heaters gain heat from the sun through solar panels and are controlled by a time clock and thermostats.

They are often used in conjunction with gas heaters so that the amount of fuel required for the latter will be lessened. Heat pumps do not actually generate heat they “pump” it from the surrounding air into the water. Heat pumps are extremely efficient but they are low powered compared to other types of heater and are reliant on the temperature of the air.

There are many options to choose from so you should be able to find a heater, or maybe a combination of heaters, that meets your needs and your budget.
