What to Consider Before Buying the Best Solar Pool Heater

Shopping for the best solar pool heater is no easy feat. There are so many things to consider, but with UMA you’ll know that you’re getting a quality solar pool heater for the best price possible.

That being said, it’s important to take a few things into account before you make the plunge and purchase a solar pool heater for your family. Let’s take a look at the most important considerations to remember when you buy a solar pool heater.


The Climate

If you live somewhere super sunny, then a solar pool heater is going to be amazing for you. Places like California and Florida get loads of sunlight, which can be stored by the solar system until you need to use it to heat your pool. Whilst it’s normally sunny, during the winter months you’ll definitely need some form of heating to keep using your pool, and a solar pool heater is perfect.

However, if you live in a freezing cold area of the USA, a solar pool heater might not be for you. Sure, some super cold areas get some good sun exposure, but if you need to heat your pool up quickly then you might need to opt for a gas heater.


The Size of the Pool

Pool heaters come in all shapes and sizes, just like the pools that they are servicing. If you need to heat a huge pool, then you will need to get a bigger solar heater. Alternatively, if you have a small pool, a small solar pool heater will be better suited. It’s also important to remember what you need the pool for.

If you have a chilled pool that the family sits around on a sunny day, then it might not be crucial for you to have one of the top end solar pool heaters. However, if you’re an athlete with a large pool that you’re training in, you might want to opt for a more top of the range solar pool heater that will give you uber specific temperature readings.
