If you live in Victoria, you probably don’t have the luxury of enjoying your pool year-round (unless you are keen on ice baths). However, you don’t have to settle for only six months of pool use, no matter where you live in Melbourne. Gas pool heaters are a perfect addition to extend your swimming season, year-round. 


How does gas pool heating work?

Similar to outdoor gas heaters, gas pool heaters burn gas to create heat which in turn heats the water that passes through their copper pipes. Unlike heat pumps, gas pool heaters do not use the ambient air temperature to function. Therefore, gas heaters work year-round, no matter the season or temperature. 

There are numerous benefits to having a pool gas heater installed in your Melbourne home. 


1/ Not weather dependent

Perfect for our cooler Melbourne mornings, pool gas heaters do not rely on the weather to raise pool water temperature. Unlike heat pumps or solar pool heaters, gas pool heaters can maintain any desired temperature regardless of the weather in Victoria. 

2/ Quick and efficient 

Pool gas heaters raise water temperatures quicker than any other type of pool heater. Perfect for those who like to use their pools regularly on our cool Melbourne mornings. Just set your gas pool heater to kick on and enjoy an early morning swim. Alternatively, if you just need to heat your pool when you (or your kids or guests) want to use it, pool gas heaters can heat the water quickly and keep your pool warm while everyone swims.

Gas heaters are also recommended for heating spas. Powerful and efficient, installing a gas heater in your spa allows you to use the spa year-round.  

3/ Add value to your home 

Without a doubt, listing a heated pool will be a bonus when selling your Brighton home. A Swimart survey found 90% of pool owners believe their pool boosted the value of their home by $30,000 on average. So if you are planning to become a pool owner, you will be joining the 1.2 million Australian households with a pool making your property more valuable to potential home buyers.

4/ Fewer repairs

Pool heater repairs in Melbourne can be costly. But, gas heaters typically run less than other pool heaters, saving the components wear and tear. Engaging a qualified gas fitter for pool heater maintenance will help you save money in the long run as you won’t be paying for costly emergency pool heater repairs.
