We have the best pool heat pump for your pool heating needs.
Heat Pumps are extremely efficient, economical machines designed specifically for pool heating. It is similar in operation to that of a typical residential air conditioning system. It is, in fact a heat pump employing a hermetic motor compressor in a refrigeration cycle to extract heat from the ambient air and deliver it to the circulating pool water. The heat pump concept is recognized as one of the most economic methods of swimming pool heating. Two types of energy sources are utilized to produce the required heat output, the heat from the ambient air and electrical power used to run the compressor. For every unit of electricity uses, it produces 4 to 6 units of heat, extracted from the ambient air. The efficiency of the heat pump is measured by the coefficient of performance (COP) – i.e. the ratio of energy output to energy input. This is dependent on the ambient air temperature and the temperature of the water of the swimming pool. As with all swimming pool heating systems, you are advised to use a swimming pool cover when the pool is not in use. This will keep evaporation, the greatest heat loss to a minimum, and so reduce the overall pool heating costs and unwanted frustrations. If no cover is used, it is essential that the heat pump be oversized accordingly. All units sizes and heating capacity stated below is with the use of a solar blanket.
