If you are installing a new swimming pool, or you already have one in place, you may be thinking about installing a pool heater to go along with your pool. There are many benefits associated with installing a pool heater. Taking the time to learn about these benefits can help you decide if installing one is worth the investment for your pool. Here are a few of the benefits of installing a pool heater:

●        Ensures Your Pool Is At Your Desired Temperature Setting

The greatest benefit associated with installing a pool heater is that it ensures your pool is at your desired temperature. Some people simply do not like cold pool water. They like the water to be warmer so they are comfortable when they get in. If you are one of these types of people, a pool heater helps to ensure that the pool water will be at your desired temperature setting.

●        Ensures an Extended Swimming Pool Season

The second benefit of installing a pool heater is that a heater can extend your swimming pool season. When you have a pool heater installed, you may get a few extra weeks of swimming time at the beginning and end of the pool season. You can heat the water when it would otherwise be too cold to go swimming. This helps to maximize the use you get out of your pool.

●        Can Increase the Value of Your Home

One of the lesser known benefits of installing a pool heater is that it can increase the value of your home. People who are looking to purchase a pool home prefer homes with a pool heater and pay a little extra for those with a heater already in place. If you are thinking about selling your home in the future, a pool heater may be beneficial to you.

●        Can Also Heat a Spa

The final benefit of installing a pool heater is that your pool heater can also heat a spa. If you are thinking about adding a built-in spa to your pool area, you will need a heater anyway to heat up the spa. The same heater that heats your pool can heat your spa. As such, adding the heater now will make it easier and a little bit cheaper when the time comes to add your spa.
