Do you hate draining and covering your pool every winter? With a Gulfstream HI-5 Series pool heat pump, you can heat your pool even when the outside temperature is below freezing. Or, if you live somewhere with milder winters, you can heat your pool for free with a solar pool heater! Let’s take a closer look at pool heat pumps and solar pool heaters to help you decide which one is best for you – or if you would benefit from both.
Benefits of Swimming Pool Heat Pumps
While each swimming pool heat pump will have different features, these are the benefits of the Gulfstream Hi-5 series pool heat pump:

Benefits of Solar Pool Heaters
Solar pool heaters have many benefits, including:
- Heat your pool without using any electricity
- Extend your swimming season – solar pool heaters raise your water temperature by 10-15 degrees
- Solar energy is environmentally friendly, so you know you aren’t contributing to climate change to heat your pool
- Require little to no maintenance
Which One Is Better For You – a Pool Heat Pump or a Solar Pool Heater?
If you live in a place with very cold winters and you want to swim year-round, you will need a standard pool heat pump to keep the water warm enough to swim in. If you live in a place with mild winters or you only want to extend your swimming season a few more weeks in the spring and fall, a solar pool heater may be a better fit.
Here’s the best part – you can combine a solar pool heater with a Gulfstream Hi-5 pool heater for the most energy-efficient pool heating around the year!
