Pool Heat Pump Repair & Installation Services for Clearwater & Surrounding Cities
How a Pool Heat Pump Works
Many homeowners are familiar with how heat pumps operate. In essence, they move heat from one area to another. For pool heat pumps, heat is extracted from the outdoor air and transferred to the water in the pool. The actual process begins when the pool pump circulates water drawn from the pool through a filter into the heater. The condenser transfers the heat collected from the outside air to the pool water through a specially designed heat exchanger.
Pool Heat Pump Efficiency
A pool heat pump installation provides a significant efficiency advantage when compared to other heating methods. Gas pool heaters are usually 80-90 percent efficient, but a heat pump can be 100 percent efficient because it moves heat instead of generating it. In the summer, the amount of heat produced is much greater than the electricity consumed. As a result, monthly operating costs are significantly cheaper than competing products.
Pool heat pump efficiency is measured by the Coefficient of Performance (COP). You should look for a residential model with a value of five or higher. Environmentally-conscious people appreciate the lower emissions and reduced carbon footprint that result from installing a pool heat pump.
