If you want to save energy and money in heating your pool, you must use a heat pump pool heater. Heat pumps uses electricity to capture heat and move it from one place to another. Which means that they do not produce heat!
As the heat pump circulates the swimming pool’s water, the water from the pool passes to a filter, and then to the heat pump heater. The air from the outside is drawn by the heat pump heater’s fan and draws it over to its heater coil. The evaporator coil has a liquid refrigerant that absorbs the heat from the outside air and is transformed into a gas. The warm gas in the coil then proceeds to the compressor of the pump. The compressor then heats up the temperature of the gas, and then directs it to the condenser. The condenser then transfers the heat from the hot gas to the swimming pool’s water that is circulating in the heat pump. The heated water is then circulated back to the swimming pool. The hot gas as it passes through the condenser coil is cooled down and transforms back to its liquid form and goes back to the evaporator, where the whole process starts again at the beginning.
Swimming pool heat pumps that have a high energy efficiency ratio are using scroll compressors compared to the standard units that are using reciprocal compressors. Heat pump pool heaters work efficiently as long as the air temperature from the outside ranges from 45 degrees Fahrenheit to 50 degrees Fahrenheit, because the cooler the outside air, the greater the energy that the heat pump will use.
Heat pump pool heaters cost more than the gas pool heaters, but they have both low operating costs because of their high efficiencies. But with the proper maintenance,the electricity powered heat pump pool heaters will last longer than the gas pool heaters saving you money in the long run. That is why we must buy heat pump to optimize the investment the we made on buying our pool, and to maximize the benefit and enjoyment that our family can get!
