Problems a Pool Heater Might Have

Problems a Pool Heater Might Have

Here are some noticeable and not so noticeable issues you might encounter with your pool heater.

When thinking about pool heaters, there are a few key things to note. There are a few things that could go wrong when your pool heater isn’t working properly. After initially getting your pool installed, you can forget about the critical aspect associated with a properly working pool heater. However, after time, without routine maintenance, your pool heater could end up causing major issues. Here are some noticeable and not so noticeable issues you might encounter with your pool heater.

Leaky Refrigerants

Heat pump pool heaters are known for using refrigerants to make them work properly. The refrigerant is ultimately used to absorb the heat from the outdoor air. As a result, if your refrigerant is low, you will notice insufficient heating, or conversely, your entire system could fail to work effectively and efficiently. To avoid these problems, routine maintenance can help you avoid running into these issues down the line.

A Broken Fan Motor

Lage fans will typically draw air in from the outside so that the refrigerant can then absorb that heat. However, when the fan motor is broken, that air isn’t being drawn in, and then the refrigerant doesn’t have anything to absorb. If you have issues with your fan motor, it’s best to get a technician with the necessary skills to replace or repair your fan motor.

Heat Exchanger Dilemmas

Although the heat exchanger is designed with durability in mind, you may experience issues with the heat exchanger over time. Proper maintenance is key to avoiding severe issues with your pool in the long run. The heat exchanger can, unfortunately, fall victim to eventual corrosion as a result of chemicals in the pool itself.

A Faulty Compressor

The compressor is the unit that is designed to heat up the refrigerant to an extreme temperature and subsequently raise the pressure to then heat the water. When you have a faulty compressor, the entire system suffers.
