Pool heat pumps are an efficient, environmentally friendly way to heat a pool. Heat pumps can save pool owners money in the long run as they typically have a much lower annual operating costs than gas heaters and with proper maintenance, can last up to 10 years or more.
This method of heating is environmentally friendly as they use less energy than other heating methods. They operate by extracting heat from the outside air, increasing the heat with a compressor, delivering the heat to the water, and ejecting the cold air out the top of the unit.
For a heat pump to operate effectively, the ambient air outside should be 45 ℉ or higher. This method of pool heating may be ideal for pool owners who use their pool in warmer weather or who live in warmer climates during the colder seasons.
When selecting a heat pump pool heater, you should consider the following:
Size or BTU
COP Efficiency Rating
Recommended Applications: Swim Season
Pool Type: In-Ground, Above Ground
Pros: Low operating Costs, Environmentally friendly.
Cons: Requires warmer ambient temperatures, higher initial cost.
