New pool heat pump

Hi All, I am in the process of installing a 16x32 gunite pool in the Northern Virginia area. The gunite was shot already and the coping is being installed tomorrow. I was evaluating a gas heater vs electric heat pump. The plumbing estimates to run the gas line are way too expensive and I would also have to increase my gas meter size. This work would cost me $3500 plus the cost of the heater ($2800). This seems astronomical. I have started to look into a heat pump. My electric panel is in the basement very close to the location for the future heater so the electrical work/costs should be minimal. I understand that heat pumps take much longer to heat the pool versus gas heaters. I am mainly interested in using the heat pump to extend the season by 2-3 weeks on both ends of the season. We are installing an auto safety cover on the pool and we gut full sun. I am just looking for advice/input regarding heat pumps in this climate before I make a final decision.

Thanks!
