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.

depending on conditions but generally a heat pump will cost you less to run.

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.

Heat con conduction is efficient metals

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.

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.

Insulators are more efficient at maintaining heat.

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.

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.

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.

Heat rises so a bottom supply will work best.

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).

Very efficient and warm on the feet. I have it. One drawback is the initial cost is higher for installation over other heating systems. Once the floor slab heats up there is minimal input heat to keep it there.

Heat is the most efficient agent of metamorphism.

no it does not. go swimming in this heat!

Best radiant space heater. Optimus H-5210 Infrared Quartz Heater ... quartz heater for its silent operation, effective heating, energy efficiency and safety . The most efficient heaters available, according to my research are infared heaters. The brand that pops up the most is Comfort Zone. They heat through infared technology. Not only emitting heat into the air, but also heating walls and furniture to hold heat in. They are both cost effective and efficient.

Solar by far, especially in Florida. A Solar Pool heater can allow you to swim all year long for FREE.

The purpose of a swimming pool heat pump is to rise the temperature of the water. The pool then can be used for swimming even on days when the weather is not perfect. The swimming pool season is extended.

Infrared Heaters are generally more cost efficient then regular space heaters. The reason is that they heat the object directly rather then heating the air, so it wastes less engergy. Ive seen estimates that say its as much as 80% more energy efficient.

The average baseboard heaters are designed to help heat your home in the most efficient way possible. Starting at the bottom of the house. This is the best way to make your house warm.

The cost effectiveness of the heating system depends on the initial cost of the system and the operating costs. These will vary depending on the local utility rates and financing options. The most cost effective based on initial investment is a gas heater. These are less expensive up front. The most cost effective on the operating side is a heat pump. These units are more expensive upfront but cost up to 70% less to run. Over the long term, the heat pump is by far more cost effective but it will cost you more upfront. If you can find a financing option for the heat pump it is your best bet.

1gal. Propane = 91600 BTUs 1gal. Kerosene = 135000 BTUs To heat 1,000,000 BTUs it would cost: 10.91 gals of Propane x (price per gal) = Cost (to heat 1mil btu) 7.4 gals of kerosene x (price per gal) = Cost (to heat 1mil btu) Remember this is at 100% efficiency. If you are working with something less efficient you must multiply the fuel btu by the efficiency. For example: Propane Furnace that is 80% efficient. 1,000,000 / (91600 x .8) = 13.6 gals 13.6 gals x (price per gal) = Cost (to heat 1mil btu) Kerosene furnace that is 60% efficient. 1,000,000 / (135,000 x .6) = 12.3 gals 12.3 gals x (price per gal) = Cost (to heat 1mil btu) Hope this helps good luck

Alegria is a good reseller if you want to buy a heat pump for your swimming pool (in Belgium).

Temperature alone would do it; engines create heat, which must be removed for best efficiency.

heat exchange is a piece of equipment built for efficient heat transfer from one medium to another.
