It’s a good thing Arizona sees lots of sunshine. Electric pool heaters can keep swimming pools temperate, but the heating coils require a lot of sunlight to stay warm and heat the water. The biggest issue is when the temperature goes below 50 degrees fahrenheit. Electric heaters will freeze and not be able to heat your pool.
There’s a way around the problem, though. Consider a heat pump. It delivers maximum energy efficiency, operates just like a heat pump for your central HVAC, and it provides a reliable source of heat. The upfront cost of installation is pretty high, but heat pumps can be energy efficient. Their coolant is within the unit, so they aren’t subject to annual maintenance checks to operate properly year after year. The major downside? They are monstrously big – just like your home’s heat pump.
