Heat pumps are an alternative to solar when a constant year round temperature is
required. A heat pump is similar to a domestic air conditioner or refrigerator.
When it turns on, energy held in the surrounding air is absorbed into the refrigerant
gas circulating through the unit. This heat is then transferred by a heat exchange
process to your water pool water which is also circulating through the unit. The
result is pool water at exactly the temperature you require – 12 months of the year.
Your trained Heliocol consultant can advise on the correct size and model heat pump
to best suit your needs, budget and pool size. An assessment of the approximate
running costs of your heat pump can also be provided before you make your decision.
What Can I Expect?
A Pool Heat Pump can provide year round swimming. With set and
forget operation, a pool owner can programme their system to have their pool at
a constant temperature every day of the year, regardless of the weather. * Yes,
even in the winter months a heat pump will provide the temperature you want for
whatever you want - exercise, family fun, medical rehabilitation or children’s swimming
*(Obviously, as weather conditions change from season to season, the operating
time of the heat pump will vary).
Installation is easy
A Pool Heat Pump will typically be installed alongside your filtration
system**, with connection to your swimming pool an easy job for the installer. Not
all pool heat pumps are the same, so be sure to ask about things like correct sizing,
ratings, country of origin, estimated running costs, warranty, and backup service.
