How Do Pool Heat Pumps Work?
pool heat pump uses electricity to operate and also uses the sun-warmed
air which contributes to the efficiency of the unit. Heat Pump Pool
Heaters use electricity and do not generate heat.
As the gas and pool water is pumped through the heat exchanger, the hot gas transfers its heat to the water. The water is heated 3-5 degrees as it circulates through and then warmer water flows back into 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.
A unit of electrical energy (you pay for) runs the compressor
which sucks evaporating Freon gas from the liquid filled evaporator
tube. This causes a strong cooling effect (just like sweat evaporates
from your skin and cools you off). The gas picks up four units of heat
from the air flowing over the outside of the evaporator tubes.
Pool heat pumps are designed
specifically for recreational water heating (in ground, on ground or
above ground pools, spas, hot tubs, swim spas, etc.) If you have an air
conditioner, dehumidifier, water cooler or a refrigerator, you already
own a heat pump.
heat pump operates by taking the heat from the surrounding air and uses
it to heat the water in your pool.
The compressor (C) receives this warmer gas and compresses it to a higher pressure, resulting in the Freon reaching even higher temperatures.
As the unit sends the heated gas through the heat exchanger, the gas gives up its heat to the surrounding water (D).
The Freon is then reverted to its liquid state which completes the cycle (A).
The water (F), which is being forced through the heat exchanger (D) by your pool pump, is heated by three to five degrees as it passes through the heat exchanger. The water, now warmer, then flows back into your pool (G).
