Installing a pool heater is a wonderful way to use your pool as long as possible, and even if you live in a warmer climate, there will still be those chilly days in the winter when you wish the water was a tad warmer.  Because there are different kinds of heaters, the cost of installing one can greatly vary depending on the type you choose, the professional you hire and where you live.
