Example:The chart below illustrates pool heating costs with and without a cover for each month when heating is required. To maintain 80 degrees water temperature in a 14 x 28 pool, 4ft. average depth, low wind speed, in Ft. Myers, Florida, @ .070/kwh local electric will cost approximately:
To heat this pool with a Heat Pump @ .070 /Kwh would cost:
"With A Cover " $291.00 Per Year.
"Without A Cover" $726.00 /Yr.
Note: To heat the same pool with a L.P. Gas Heater @ $1.50/Gal. would cost:
"With A Cover" $2,036.00 Per Year.
"Without A Cover" $5091.00 /Yr.
A pool heat pump will heat your pool for 70% to 80% less money than a L.P. gas type heater and 50% to 60% less than natural gas type heaters. Heat pumps cost far less to operate than any other "demand type" pool heater period. Heating costs vary with: geographic location, desired water temperature, wind speed, sun exposure, use of cover and swim season.
