A pool heat pump (air-source) produces more energy than it consumes by capturing heat from the outside air (as low as 50 degrees) and transferring that heat to the water in your swimming pool. Pool heat pumps are great for constant heating, and are perfect if you use your pool frequently. Because heat pumps do not create heat, they are more energy efficient, cost less to operate than gas heaters, and have a longer life span than gas heaters.
How Heat and Cool Heat Pumps Work
Heat-cool pool heat pumps (pool chillers) are just the right heater for geographic areas with cool temperatures but also hot summer months. These models will cool your pool on hot summer days when your pool feels like bath water, and will also warm your pool on cooler days when the air temperature is too low for a regular pool heat pump.
How Geothermal Heat Pumps Work
A geothermal heat pump gathers heat from a water source, such as well water, rivers, lakes, etc. The water source is stable and not affected by outside air temperature. A geothermal heat pump will maintain a constant temperature year round, and are an excellent choice for colder climates. Geothermal heat pump technology is the fastest growing segment in the industry today.
