Gas or Electric Heating for Pool / Spa
I have a site in Texas that doesn’t have a gas line installed and we are putting in an approximately 1,300 SF pool with 75 SF being part of a heated spa pool. The pool guy is telling me that a gas line needs to be run to the site to heat the pool because electric heat pumps won’t get hot enough to heat a spa pool and that only gas can achieve this. Are electric spa/pool heaters not powerful enough to heat a hot tub/pool set up? Extending a gas line to the property is an expensive proposition and electric heating seems like a safer and less carbon intensive route (depending on where the electricity is coming from).
