The Best Way To Heat Your Pool | Billabong Pools

Whether you have an inground or above ground pool at home, keeping it at a comfortable temperature all year-round with a pool heating system maximises your investment.

As the water heating system can consume a significant amount of energy, it’s important to choose pool and spa heating equipment that’s as efficient as possible. In Australia, the three most popular water heating systems are electric, gas and solar, so which one’s right for your pool?

Electric Heating

Electric heaters are still a popular way to keep pools warm and inviting all year-round. Many homeowners now opt for electric heat pumps, which are a more energy-efficient way to heat pools, and depending on the location, are often more efficient than solar options. We recommend Rheem’s range of highly-efficient AccentAir electric heat pumps.

Gas Heating

Simple, effective and economical, it’s easy to see why gas pool heating systems are so popular. While electric heat pumps are ideal if you want your pool heated all the time, gas heating is the better choice if you swim occasionally and want to heat your pool quickly. Rheem’s Raypak pool and spa gas heater range is available in a variety of sizes to suit your individual pool or spa heating needs and is an excellent choice for Sunshine Coast homes.

Solar Heating

With so many sunny days here on the Sunshine Coast, solar heating isn’t only ideal; it’s now the most popular pool heating solution. Easy to install, energy-efficient and eco-friendly, a solar system could save you significant money on your home pool heating bills and keep your pool warm and inviting. We stand by the Sunbather solar pool heating system.

Which One Is Right for You?

To choose the right heating system for your pool, you’ll need to consider a range of factors. Along with whether you want to use the pool all-year-round, also think about:

  • The location of your pool — does it get direct sunshine?
  • The climate where you live — what’s the average temperature?
  • How you use your pool — is it for swimming and relaxing, or hydrotherapy as well?
