Should I buy a smaller pool heater to save money?

Size Matters

Unless you love the shock of cold water on your body, you'd probably like to have a pool heater. Most people prefer pool water that is around 78 degrees Fahrenheit. Unless you live in a particularly warm climate, you won't be able to rely on the sun alone to heat your pool. In most climate zones, you'll need a pool heater to provide consistently warm water.
Size does matter when it comes to pool heaters. Though the initial cost of a smaller heater may be less, a larger pool heater may be better on your energy budget. Basically, a smaller heater may have to work much harder and longer to heat your pool than a larger version. The longer and harder your heater has to work, the more expensive you can expect your energy bills to be. Ask your pool equipment dealer for information about the most efficient heater for your pool.
