Common Pool Heater Issues

Pool heaters are prone to similar problems encountered by furnaces and boilers. Possible pool heater issues may include dirty burners, failed heating elements, failed electrical ignition, clogged gas lines, and other related electrical problems.

When it comes to pool heaters, maintenance is vital to make sure that the heater components are clean. Old or worn-out components must be replaced before they cause any problems with the unit. This is why we keep on emphasizing the importance of regular pool cleaning and maintenance.

One of the most common problems that are reported by clients who ask for pool heater repair service is caused by debris in the heater When too much debris gets into the pool heater, it will cause clogs and may lead to poor heating, low water flow, no power or heater shutting off too soon.

Types of Pool Heaters

Las Vegas Pool Pros can repair all types of pool heaters – from electric, natural gas and propane.

Pool Heaters vs Heat Pump
Pool heaters can use either electricity, natural gas or propane to heat the water that goes back to the pool. Heaters usually have a lower upfront cost than heat pumps. However, it may mean higher energy costs for the owner.

Heat pumps, on the other hand, use ambient air around the unit to warm the pool. A heat pump doesn’t need natural gas or propane, therefore putting operating costs lower.

Common Problems of Pool Heat Pumps

  • Corroded connections
  • Obstructions in air flow
  • High Freon pressure error code
  • Water leaks
  • Heater pilot failing to light
  • Strange noises (grinding, rattling, and squealing)

How Can I Reduce Heating Costs?

Pool heaters can be expensive to maintain and operate, even in warm climates like Las Vegas. Fortunately, there are steps to help lower energy costs while keeping the pool warm.

Consider the age
If the pool heater is more than 8 years in service, it may be wise to consider investing in a newer and energy-efficient pool heater. Setting the thermostat to the lowest setting possible can also help lower the energy costs.

Use a pool cover
About 75% of heat loss from pools is caused by evaporation. Any pool cover can help retain the heat in the water. The pool cover acts as a barrier which helps minimize heat loss. Solar covers can also help heat the water by utilizing the sun’s natural heat.
