Pool and Spa Heaters
Propane water heaters can be used to warm above-ground and in-ground pools and spas with ease. High-efficiency propane pool heaters can reduce customer energy bills because they warm pools faster than electric units and better maintain heat in cold conditions. The Energy Department reports the initial cost of electric heat pumps is higher than that of propane and other gas pool heaters. Heat pumps start losing efficiency once ambient temperatures fall below about 50 degrees Fahrenheit, which means they use considerably more electricity to maintain water heat. Solar heating, of course, works only when there is a steady supply of sunny days. Visit buildwithpropane.com for more information on pool and spa heaters.
