The pool heat pump is a pool device commonly. Nowadays, people attach great importance to environmental protection, and more and more people’s requirements for swimming pool heating equipment are energy saving and environmental protection. The special heat pump for the swimming pool is a kind of swimming pool heating equipment that is energy-saving, environmentally friendly, and low-cost

What are Pool Heat Pumps?

Heat pumps are devices that may be connected to your swimming pool circulation system. They are made of metal mesh and feature column-like forms. They have customizable options on their sides and fun-like blades on top.

The Department of Energy lists gas pool heaters, solar pool heaters, and heat pumps as effective ways to heat your pool. Unlike gas heaters, solar heaters and heat pumps do not produce heat transfer. Both have similar designs and are the most efficient heaters currently on the market.

The Principle of Pool Heat Pump Works

Pump heaters work on the opposite principle of air conditioning units. It extracts heat from the surrounding ambient air, allowing it to heat the refrigerant, and then compresses it, making it even hotter. It is then passed through a heat exchanger where the water is heated. The refrigerant is then allowed to expand again, cooling it down and allowing it to absorb heat from the surrounding air again. So only a little electricity is needed to run the fans and compressors, while the heat is provided indirectly by the sun.

A modern pool heater is a very efficient water heating device that uses a small amount of electricity to drive the compressor, which is the heart of the heat pump. The thermal energy produced is more than five times the electrical energy used to drive the compressor in standard on/off models, and ten times more for the inverter technology unit.

The Advantages of the Pool Heat Pump

A swimming pool heat pump is a device that absorbs low-temperature heat energy in the air, converts it into high-temperature heat energy after being compressed by a compressor, and then releases it into cold water to heat the water temperature. Compared with traditional hot water equipment such as traditional gas, oil, and electric boilers, swimming pool heat pumps have three major advantages:

  1. Good energy saving. The heat pump does not rely on sunlight or direct radiation but extracts heat energy from the air at any time of day or night. Its main heating energy comes from the free heat energy in the air. Electricity is only the energy used to run the heat pump, and the energy ratio is as high as 5.2 , which is 5.2 times that of electric boilers, so the power consumption during operation is very low. Under the same external conditions, the swimming pool heat pump is one of the most energy-efficient hot water equipment on the market.

A pool heat pump is actually a different form of solar heater. Even in extremely cold conditions (-5°C or less), heat pumps can still provide more than 60% energy savings. In most cases, in South Africa, where our daytime temperatures are relatively warm, the efficiency will be at least 5 times that of an elemental hot water system.

  1. Safety and environmental protection. The swimming pool heat pump has no combustion, no exhaust gas emission, and separation of water and electricity. It not only completely eliminates the possibility of electric shock, poisoning, explosion, etc., but also reduces the emission of air pollutants. It is a very safe and environmentally friendly device.
  2. High degree of intelligence. The swimming pool heat pump has a built-in microcomputer control system. As long as the user sets it up in advance, the heat pump will automatically complete a series of tasks such as adding water, heating, and heat preservation according to requirements, achieving 24-hour stable heating, and the whole process does not require any manual monitoring.

A heat pump looks similar to an air conditioner and can be installed either on the floor or on a wall bracket. It’s quiet and unobtrusive with a user-friendly controller, has no greenhouse gas emissions, and requires little maintenance.
