Heat Pump Pool Heater Installation and Maintenance
Proper installation and maintenance of your heat pump pool heater can optimize its efficiency. Each model of heat pump can be installed by a handyman, although it is strongly recommended to have a qualified pool professional install the heater, especially the electric hookup, and perform complicated maintenance or repair tasks. It typically takes less than a day to have a heat pump installed and running.
Read your owner's manual for a maintenance schedule and/or recommendations. You'll probably need to tune up your pool heater annually. Because of a heat pump pool heater's many moving and electrical parts, it will probably require periodic service by an air conditioning technician.
With proper installation and maintenance, heat pump pool heaters can last 10 or more years.
