Pool heaters help to keep your pool at the optimum temperature for your comfort. However, there are potential problems you may face with them that can affect their efficiency and cause hazards. Here are four dangers you should be aware of regarding your pool heater in Hobe Sound, FL:
Electric Pool Heaters
Electric pool heaters can develop problems with the electrical wiring inside the service panel. Smoke is a sign of potential problems with your heater. If you notice smoke, you should turn off the breaker immediately and contact a comfort specialist for maintenance and repair.
Inhouse Pool Heaters
You can choose to have your pool heaters installed inside rather than outside. Indoor pool heaters are easier to maintain and easily accessible no matter the weather conditions. Glazed and unglazed collectors are most suitable for heat indoor pools.
Gas Pool Heaters
Many pools use natural gas or propane for heating. This can pose serious carbon monoxide and fire problems. Ensure that professional comfort specialists properly install and maintain your gas pool heaters. As a result, you’ll protect your family from harm.
Common Gas Heater Problems
One of the most common problems with gas heaters is failure to ignite. You can check to make sure the heater switch is on and whether the thermostat is set to a temperature higher than the water temperature. You can call a comfort specialist to check the pilot and the gas supply valve to ensure it’s in the correct position.
If your heater isn’t heating your pool to the desired temperature, it may be due to the thermostat. Other reasons include your heater being too small for your pool or an inadequate supply of gas to your heater. Consult a comfort specialist who can fix your heater to improve its performance.
