This is a vague question! What type of pool are you heating? You have a lot of options, as you probably already know because you are asking for ''the best'' way. Solar heating is the cheapest way, but isn't very effective, in my opinion. If you decide to purchase an elecric or gas heater, you must know what you are looking for to determine what is going to be the best for you. When buying a pool heater: what type of pool are you heating (in or above ground), what is your rate of flow, and how much water do you need to heat.

What is the best way to heat the water in inflatable swimming pools?

There are many ways to heat the water within an inflatable swimming pool. Ofcourse there are the standard electrical pool heaters, but often these are costly and are best for long term investment. There is a more cost effective way to heat the pool that is using a Solar Cover that goes above and covers the pool. It uses the heat of the sun to trap the heat and gradually the water in pool should become warmer.

How do you heat your swimming pool with copper pipes off of your roof?

You could never recoup the costs involved by using copper pipe exlcusively. There would be no savings involved here just an immense cost and I would think not too efficient.

How much does chlorine for a swimming pool cost?

Maintaing your swimming pools ph(alkalinity) reduces your cost of chlorine an the amont of heat from the sun during the season may affect the cost. but i don't have a formula for how much it would cost but swimming pool shops in your area could probably give you a rough figure for your pool.

What materials are more efficient in maintaning heat?

Insulators are more efficient at maintaining heat.

Would you recommend using oil to heat your home or is electric heat more efficient?

Oil is the most expensive way to heat anything. Check your cost per kwh on your electric bill- easy way= forget all the blah blah and divide the total $ by the total kw. The most efficient heat source is a heat pump. For $400 worth of heat with electric or gas equipment, the same heat may cost you as little as $100.

Should you run your pool heat pump at night?

You can run a heat pump at night as long as the ambient air temperature is over 45 or 50 degrees. The lower the air temperature the less efficient the heat pump. Heat pumps convert energy from the surrounding air into heat for the pool. the warmer the ambient air temperature surrounding the heat pump the more energy efficient the heat pump is. Running your heat pump during the day is more efficient, than running the heat pump at night. Keeping a solar blanket on the pool when ever you are not swimming will help you maintain your pool heat.

Which energy efficient houses are best for my house?

The best energy efficient windows would be those that allow light in but not the warming rays of the sun. Some windows have a reflective coating that keep heat from penetrating.

What is the most cost efficient portable heater for home use?

The cost efficiency of a heater depends on a number of factors. First, what do you want to heat and where do you want to heat it? If you want to heat a one person working in a large warehouse or office it is probably most cost efficient to use a radiant heater or infrared heater that can be directed at the person. such a heater avoids heating the air in the whole room which could be expensive if the room is very large. Second, what is the relative cost of fuel where you live? Paraffin and diesel heaters can be very efficient in burning all the fuel they use so you get the most out of them but is it cheap as electricity? You need to look at the cost per Kilowatt hour output by each unit. The most efficient electric heaters are probably those that use a heat pump as you can get as much as 3 times as much heat out of the unit as you put in as it extracts heat from its surroundings (even cold air outside).
