Heat Pump

A heat pump is a good option if you wish to heat your pool all year round but don't want the running expense of a gas system. The low running cost of a heat pump is obtained by "drawing" heat out of the air. This is the same method used by reverse cycle air conditioning systems to heat houses. Swimming pool heat pumps can produce up to 6 kw of heat energy from only 1 kw of electrical energy consumed. 

Heat pumps generally have a slower heat up time than gas systems, but the running costs can be two thirds less.

How a Heat Pump works

A heat pump draws heat energy from the surrounding air and transfers that heat energy into the swimming pool through a heat exchanger inside the unit. A heat pump works very much like a reverse cycle air conditioner, it uses an evaporator, a compressor, and condenser to heat water instead of cooling air.

Step1 Capture
The fan circulates air through the outer evaporator air coil that acts as a heat collector and absorbs heat from the
ambient air. The liquid refrigerant in the air coil absorbs the available heat in the air transforming it to a gas.

Step 2 Transfer
The compressor then receives the warmed refrigerant and intensifies the heat. The intensely hot refrigerant is then
pumped into the heat exchanger (condenser).

Step 3 Heat Exchange
The heat from the hot refrigerant flowing inside the heat exchanger is then transferred into the pool water, via the
units heat exchanger.

Step 4 The cycle begins again
The refrigerant is then ready to restart the process and flows into the evaporator air coil to collect heat again.

Heat Pump Comparison / Selection Chart

Note the below chart is designed to be used as a rough guide only. Every installation is different & a number of factors need to be taken into account before a final selection is made. Pool location, heat up time, desired temperature, desired heating period, pool blanket usage, local climate are just some of the factors we take into account when sizing a heat pump. Using our exclusive software modelling program we are able to accurately estimate heat pump performance & expected running costs using all of this data. We also have climate data for every major city in Australia so we can customise the results to suit your individual situation.
