Indoor Pool and Spa Heating
Indoor swimming pools have the advantage of not being subjected to the weather conditions outdoors. Yet heating indoor pools does create three needs: The pool water must be heated, the pool room must be dehumidified, and in the winter the room air must be heated. These issues have the potential to increase energy costs.
Pool Water Evaporation and Pool Covers
Pools lose energy in a variety of ways,
but evaporation is by far the largest source of energy loss for swimming
pools. Covering a pool when it is not in use is the single most effective
means of reducing pool heating costs. Savings of 50-70% are
possible. Pool covers on indoor pools reduce evaporation (and
consequently the need to ventilate indoor air and replace it with conditioned
outdoor air). Exhaust fans can be shut off as well when the pool is
covered, reducing energy costs further. Because most indoor pools are
used year-round and have no opportunity to gain solar heat, pool covers can
keep the pool temperatures higher without having to run a pool heater as
Indoor Pool Proper Ventilation
Swimming pool rooms require proper
ventilation in order to control the indoor humidity and condensation caused
by the large amounts of evaporation. Without effective dehumidification
and ventilation, you risk the appearance of mold, corrosion, structural
damage and an uncomfortable pool environment. Mold and mildew feed in
warm, moist environments plus chlorine added to the warm air attacks ferrous
metals and accelerates damaging corrosion. Another issue with high
humidity is wood rot.
Indoor Pool Heating Options
Heat Pump for Indoor Pools
Indoor installation of a heat pump not only heats the pool, but
provides the added benefit of dehumidification of the pool room. Plus
if a cover is used on the pool, both the humidity and the heat loss will be
greatly reduced to the point where a heat pump's run time of only a few hours
per day, will maintain pool temperature as well as keep the room
Gas Pool Heater | Natural Gas or Propane
Another pool heating option is a
gas operated heater. Gas pool
heaters use either natural gas or propane so they must be installed outdoors.
They're most efficient when heating pools for short periods of time, and
they're ideal for quickly heating pools.
Electric Pool Heaters | Spa Heaters
Electric element pool heaters
are also known as tank-less heaters. They are less expensive to buy
initially and are convenient for spas because they don't take up much space
and can be put indoors.
