There are electric pool heaters on the market that are energy efficient. They work by transmitting the heat that they have gathered from the air outside or the surrounding air and generate heat for the pool this way. However, these type of heaters do not work well in areas with cool to cold temperatures as they need the air to be at least 6C or more to work properly.

Another type of electric pool heaters are ones that work by using an electric current. This is also known as an electric resistance heater. An electric current applied to a heating element is what heats the water in your backyard pool.

However, solar heating panels work a little different. These are installed near the pool, on a fence or a roof. The cold water is pumped to the solar collectors which draw heat from the sun. Once the water has been heated to a certain temperature by the solar collectors, it is then released through the solar chambers which send the heated water into the pool. The cooler water in the pool is then pumped or recycled back up to the solar heating panels and the process starts all over again.

Solar heating panel are more energy efficient that the other types of pool heaters. However, they are not an on demand product. On cooler days and little sun, it will take a longer time to get the water warmed to a particular temperature. On days like this you may have to put aside having fun or exercise in the swimming pool for another day.

Electric resistance heaters are another piece of equipment that is designed to heat your pool or spa. However, these are not designed for large in ground pools. They are better designed for smaller above ground pools or for heating spas.
