If you have a pool in your home, unless you only use it in the summer, you will need a swimming pool heat pump. A Swimming pool heat pump is a part of all in one heat pump. Is it worth it? Or how to choose the best way to get the most out of your hot pool pump. If you're interested, here are some details.

How does the swimming pool heat pump work?

The Swimming pool heat pump uses electricity to capture heat and move it from one place to another. They don't generate heat. As the pool pump circulates the swimming pool's water, the water drawn from the pool passes through a filter and the swimming pool heat pumps. The swimming pool heat pump has a fan that draws in the outside air and directs it over the evaporator 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.


Higher efficiency swimming pool heat pumps usually use scroll compressors versus the reciprocal compressors of standard units. Swimming pool heat pumps work efficiently as long as the outside temperature remains above the 45ºF–50ºF range. The cooler the outside air they draw in, the more energy they use. However, since most people use outdoor swimming pools during warm and mild weather, this usually isn't an issue.

How to determine the Efficiency of swimming pool heat pump?

The energy efficiency of the swimming pool heat pump is measured by a coefficient of performance (COP). The higher the COP number, the more efficient. However, there is no standard test for measuring the COP. Therefore, you really can't compare the COPs of different models unless you know that the manufacturers used the same test for each model. For example, the same heat pump will operate at a higher COP when the outside air temperature is higher.

Typically, manufacturers measure the COP by testing a swimming pool heat pump with an outdoor temperature of 80ºF and pool temperature of 80ºF. COPs usually range from 3.0 to 7.0, which converts to an efficiency of 300%–700%. This means that for every unit of electricity it takes to runs the compressor, you get 3–7 units of heat out of the heat pump.


How to install and maintain the swimming pool heat pump?

Since it is a part of all-in-one heat pump, proper installation and maintenance of your swimming pool heat pump can optimize its efficiency. It's best to have a qualified pool professional install the heater, especially the electric hook-up, and perform complicated maintenance or repair tasks. Read your owner's manual for a maintenance schedule and/or recommendations. You'll probably need to tune up your pool heater annually. Because a swimming pool heat pumps many moving and electrical parts, it will probably require periodic service by an air conditioning technician. With proper installation and maintenance, swimming pool heat pumps can last 10 or more years. Use it combines with an all-in-one heat pump, keep all parts of your home warm.


The pool hot water pump will help you increase the use of your pool except in the summer, especially if you enjoy swimming. And it is a very interesting thing that, enjoy the hot gas from the pool in the winter. If you are in the swimming pool heat pumps business, you can consider our cost-effective products.
