Pool Heat Pump

A pool heat pump is a cost effective method of heating your pool or spa. Your pool heat pump will provide you with years of pool enjoyment. Your new heat pump takes heat from the surrounding air and transfers it into the water. The warmer the air and the more humid the air, the more heat is available for heating your pool. The ideal or rated condition for the heat pump is 80 F air temperature, 80% relative humidity, and 80 F water temperature. This is true with all air source pool heat pumps. Under ideal conditions, a properly sized heat pump should raise your pool temperature 1 F. per hour. As air temperature and humidity decrease, performance will also decrease.

Efficiency

The most efficient time to heat your pool is during daylight hours when outside temperatures are the greatest. Adjustments to your pool pump runtime may be necessary to maintain desired temperature. Like your home air conditioner, it is recommended to set a desired temperature and leave it. A heat pump is best utilized for maintaining a set water temperature. It’s not intended to provide fast heating. When not in use for long periods of time, it is acceptable to shut off your heat pump. When you have a desire to heat your pool, plan accordingly, because it may take the heat pump days to heat your pool back to your desired temperature. The time it takes to heat your pool back up, will depend on your pool temperature and outdoor conditions.

Operation

A pool heat pump uses electricity to operate and also use the sun-warmed air which contributes to the efficiency of the unit. Heat Pump Pool Heaters do not generate heat. As the pool pump circulates the swimming pool water, the water drawn from the pool passes through a filter and the heat pump water heater. The heat pump heater has a FAN that draws in the outside air and circulates air through the Outer Evaporator Air Coil. Liquid refrigerant within the evaporator coil absorbs the heat from the outside air and becomes a gas. The warm gas in the coil then passes through the compressor. The compressor increases the heat, creating a very hot gas that then passes through the condenser. The condenser transfers the heat from the hot gas to the cooler pool water circulating through the heater. The heated water then returns to the pool. The hot gas, as it flows through the condenser coil, returns to liquid form and back to the evaporator, where the whole process begins again.
