Pool Heat Pumps

The air-to-water pool heat pump is the most efficient and ecological system that requires the least consumption to heat your pool water via electricity. With this system, heat is transferred from the air to the water. The big advantage of heat pumps lies in the fact that they produce more energy than they use. This means that for every kWh taken from the electricity grid, three to five kWh of thermal energy is obtained for the swimming pool.

How do pool heat pumps work?

Heat pumps are integrated with the pump and filter system of the swimming pool. When cold water enters the heat pump, it absorbs energy from the air and raises the temperature to varying degrees. The heated water is then returned to the swimming pool. This procedure allows more than 10 m3 of water to be heated per hour, effectively raising the total pool temperature.

Will my pool be warm all year round?

On the Costa Blanca this is perfectly possible, provided that a cover is used to prevent heat being lost at night. We can deliver and install this cover for you. If an extension of the swimming season is enough for you, we recommend solar pool heating.

Inverter vs. no inverter

When you buy a swimming pool heat pump, the most important thing to consider is whether you want to buy an inverter heat pump or a non-inverter heat pump. If a heat pump has an inverter, it is more efficient, uses less energy and becomes smarter. By becoming smarter we mean that the pump can decide for itself whether it should work faster / harder or slower / softer.

Smartphone apps

If you choose a swimming pool heat pump with smartphone app option, you can turn the heat pump on and off from anywhere in the world and adjust the temperature. It is often also possible to view information about the pump, such as electricity consumption.

Horizontal vs. vertical air outlet

When choosing a pool heat pump it is important to choose the right pump for the right place. There are models with a horizontal or vertical outlet. When a heat pump is placed in a “free location” with no walls or plants nearby, a horizontal outlet is used. When the pump has to be placed in a location where the pump is located near a wall or other object, a vertical outlet is used.
