Many pool owners want to gain the health benefits of swimming but find that the season when the water is warm enough is too short. They may have considered a gas pool heater but been put off by the high running costs (particularly if you have to use propane). The answer is a pool heat pump. Although they are more expensive to buy they are cheap to operate and environmentally friendly. However they do have some disadvantages.
What Is A Heat Pump?
In essence a heat pump is a device which transfers heat from one place and deposits it elsewhere. In swimming pools heat is extracted from the surrounding air and transferred to the pool water. A heat pump can in addition be utilized to take heat from pipes sunk into the ground as is commonly the case when one is utilized for a home heating system. A drawback of air source heat pumps (as used for pools) is that they become less efficient in low temperatures and require a defrost feature to enable them to keep working.
Everyone is used to fridges and a/c units which work in the same way except they are used for cooling instead of heating. Whilst standard pool heat pumps are designed for pool warming all the ranges incorporate a version that can be reversed to cool the water. (more…)
