Heat Pump Pool Heaters

Heat Pump Swimming Pool Heaters

 

A Heat Pump uses electricity to operate. They are actually a form of solar heater, as the sun-warmed air contributes to the efficiency of these units. This heat is extracted from the air, upgraded with a compressor, and then transferred to the water.

For those who enjoy swimming regardless of the weather, a Heat Pump is the recommended method. It is also the preferred method for therapy or athletic trainers, and also when a home is not "solar feasible" (i.e. solar will not fit on roof.) A heat Pump, when properly sized, can maintain any desired pool temperature between 80 and 90 degrees, regardless of outside weather conditions. A Heat Pump will work when the outside air temperature is above 45 degrees.

Due to their high efficiency, heat pumps have a low cost of operation. Typically, for every 20 cents of electric input, you receive $1.00 worth of heat.

Why Heat My Pool?

You bought your pool for a number of reasons like family fun, exercise, entertaining and possibly even therapeutic reasons. However you've probably found that without heating your pool it's often too cold to enjoy. Heating your pool will allow you to enjoy it all season, perhaps all year round, thereby increasing the return on your sizable investment

Types of Heat Pump Pool Heaters

There are two basic types of pool heat pumps. The most common is an "Air-Source", the other being "Water-Source". Air Source Heat Pumps use air as a heat source. Water Source Heat Pumps get their heat source from water i.e. lake, river, or well water. Water source units are generally used for special applications; for more information call our help desk at 800-333-9276.

Longevity and Maintenance

Heat pumps will typically last between 10 to 15 years or more. Because heat pumps are a mechanical device with many moving parts, they require periodic service by an A/C technician.  Heat pump factory warranties vary from 5 - 15 years.

Choosing the Right Type of Heating System

There are three basic types of pool heating systems: Solar, Electric Heat Pump, and Gas (Natural or Lp/Propane).  Deciding which system is best for you and your pool is determined by considering the factors below:

  • Water temperature desired
  • Swimming season desired
  • Geographic location / climate
  • Spending plans / project budget
  • The size/shape of the pool, plus shading/wind factors
  • Cost of operation
