Swimming Pool Heat Pumps
How Does A Heat Pump Work?
A Swimming Pool Heat Pump is an efficient way of heating your Swimming Pool as it uses advanced refrigeration technology to capture the heat in the outside air and transfer it to your swimming pool water. It works in fact like a fridge in reverse. For every unit of electricity that you put in to run the compressor you will get approx. 4.6 units of heat out of the heat pump- so nearly 80% of the energy is FREE!
To heat your pool correctly you will need to run your filtration for a minimum of 12 hours a day throughout the season and use a solar cover when the pool is not in use.
