Pool Heater Repair

Your swimming pool is a comfortable oasis in the midst of summer’s unrelenting heat. To enjoy the water even on days earlier and later in the summer when the weather isn’t scorching, you’ll need an operational pool heater.

Like any machine or appliance, pool heaters do occasionally break down, which is why you need to have an experienced and competent repair service on call. More people in the MetroWest area now trust Basnett Plumbing, Heating & AC for all of their pool heater repair needs. Call us today, whether you simply suspect a minor problem may be developing or you’ve already got a full blown complete breakdown.

Pool Heater Problems

Pool heaters are complex devices consisting of a number of moving parts. Using either gas or electricity, pool heater energy usage generally ranges between 150,000 to 400,000 BTUs. Many people think of their pool heater as just another component of their pool, but to ensure it’s ready to be used at all times, you should treat it the same as you would a furnace or boiler. Annual checkups and regular maintenance from a professional can go a long way. Unfortunately we recognize that regular service is often neglected, and even if a tight schedule is kept, problems can eventually develop with any water heater.

The most common sign that there is a problem with your pool heater is when it simply stops heating your pool effectively. If you have an older model or it’s used extensively, there likely won’t be any transition before it stops working altogether. This doesn’t necessarily mean it needs to be replaced, but you should call for repairs as soon as possible before the pool heater breaks permanently.

Another common sign that your pool heater needs to be serviced is when your energy bill suddenly increases. Especially if you have a gas powered pool heater, your bills should be relatively low and consistent during the summer. So, if you notice your gas bill unexpectedly skyrocketing in the middle of August, call us right away to have your pool heater inspected.

A number of things can be wrong with the device, but due to their complex nature and their location, professional attention is the only way to diagnose and solve the problem.
