Heat pump pool heater working principle
There are three ways we commonly use to heat swimming pools: swimming pool heat pump or gas pool heater, solar heating.
In terms of working principle, pool heat pumps draw in the heat from ambient air and deliver the heat to heat up the pool water. It will be better if the surrounding air is warmer, so many customers think heat pumps work better if the climate is warmer. The INVERBOOST heat pump could work down to -20 degrees. It is actually not very common that people to swim in a too cold climate like below 50 degrees.
A heat pump pool heater usually is more expensive than gas pool heaters for inground pools. While above-ground pools are less expensive. However, a heat pump pool heater is more cost-saving when operating, if the pool is with the pool cover and it is covered when it is not in use, the operation cost can be even less. INVERBOOST solutions are more cost-saving compared with on/off systems.
When we choose a heat pump pool heater, its size is the most important to consider. The heat pump size usually ranges from 5kw to 130kw, these years there is also a mini heat pump pool heater in the market for small above-ground pools, for example, Alsavo has mini pool heaters from 2.5kw to 6kw, these heaters are very popular in the market. Consult professional suppliers or technicians before purchasing.
Efficiency is also very important to consider. A heat pump pool heater is measured by COP (coefficient of performance), a higher value means higher energy efficiency. There are different COP values in different conditions, normally at air 28 degrees and at air 15 degrees. The COP of INVERBOOST heat pump at Air 28 degrees, Water 28 degrees, and humidity 80% is up to 16. Some manufacturers also define the average COP of the pool heater. This efficiency rating is one of the important measurements.
Maximized pool season
Though the initial expense of a heat pump pool heater is more than a gas Poolheizung . With pool heat pumps, energy costs would be much less per year, which can be put in use frequently. Using gas heater costs constantly costs more. With INVERBOOST technology, we could enjoy a swimming pool in 4 seasons, which is worthy of investment. It also costs less to repair or maintain a heat pump than a gas heater. On the other hand, the heat pump has a longer service life up to 10 years, and the working life of a gas heater is less only about half of that.
