Electric Heat Pumps
Electric heat pumps are an incredibly energy efficient way to heat your spa. They actually act like an air conditioner in reverse – pulling heat from the surrounding air and then transferring it into the water. These operate extremely well even in very low ambient temperatures and they cost very little to run. You can find electric heat pumps to suit all size spas.
Gas heaters are very popular for spas as they are safe, quiet and very easy to install. As well as all that, they also heat the water very quickly, so you aren’t waiting ages for the spa to reach your desired temperature. Gas spa heaters are available in a range of sizes and can be bought within any budget. They are improving in efficiency all the time which means that they can transfer more heat into the water while using less gas, resulting in a smaller bill for you! All gas spa heaters come with thermostats so you can set the water to the perfect temperature.
For the ultimate in energy efficient spa heating, you really can’t go past a solar heating system. The spa water is circulated through the solar collector which is mounted on the roof. As the water circulates through the collector, the sun warms it up (the water absorbs the sun’s heat). The heated water is then returned to the spa. Solar spa heating systems use very little amounts of electricity to run if any at all, saving you big dollars on your electricity bill!
