Why does your natural gas pool heater need to be checked by a licensed gas technician each year?

If you have a natural gas pool heater, it is recommended that you have it serviced at least once a year in the spring by a licensed gas technician.  Natural gas pool heaters, especially those left outside all year, are exposed to the elements as well as animals who make pool heaters their home over the winter.  A heater clean and light, which is a service we offer, checks the safety and efficiency of your gas heater and ensures the following:

  • Make sure the heater is installed according to code
  • Clean the burner tray and remove spiders’ nests which
    clog the burner orifices and produce an inefficient flame
  • Clean the heat exchanger and remove any soot that has built up
  • Ensure that the flame is clean and blue when we light it after our cleaning
  • Ensure all electrical connections are clean and that the safety system is working properly
  • Confirm there is proper air flow above the heat exchanger and in the venting.

A properly maintained pool heater is ultimately safer but will also save hard earned dollars in gas bills and premature failure of your heater.
