How do pool heat pumps work?
As the pool pump circulates the swimming pool's water, the water drawn from the pool passes through a filter and the heat pump pool water heater. The heat pump heater 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.
Electric pool heaters and electric pool heat pumps both run with electricity.
The difference is that a pool heat pump will not generate heat from a heating element (like an electric heater) but will harvest the heat from the air and transfer this heat to your pool water. A small amount of electricity is used to run the compressor and other components. This system is the most cost effective way of heating up your pool. It costs 4 or 5 times less than a gas heater or a simple electric element heater. (Looks like the element on an electric stove)Heat pump pool heaters cost more than gas pool heaters, but they typically have much lower annual operating costs because of their higher efficiencies. With proper maintenance, heat pump pool heaters typically last longer than gas pool heaters. Therefore, you'll save more money in the long run.
With proper installation and maintenance, heat pump pool heaters can last 10 or more years. Electric element heaters are also known as tank-less heaters. They cost up to 5 or 6 times more to run than a heat pump but are usually less expensive to buy initially and are convenient for spas because they don't take up much space and can be put indoors. They cost too much to run to heat a pool though. Some people use them or gas heaters for indoor pools in cold weather states in the winter and a heat pump in the warmer months to get the most savings.
