You can’t fail to have a great time when you spend some quality family time together in and around your own swimming pool. You want the fun to go on for as long as possible, which is why it makes sense to extend the swimming season with the help of a pool heat pump.

Add a Pool Heat Pump

Add a pool heat pump and extend the swimming season.


If you are looking to buy swimming pool heat pumps so that you can get maximum enjoyment from your pool for a bigger part of the year, here are some things you need to know about these pumps.

What is a Pool Heat Pump?

The obvious answer to that question is that it does what it says it will do and is designed to ensure that your pool stays at just the right temperature regardless of the season.

One of the many plus points of putting in a pool heat pump is the ability to extend your season by keeping your water at just the right temperature. In addition, it is reassuring to know that a pool heat pump is designed to use a modest amount of electrical energy while it carries out the process of transferring heat from one location to the other.

It works by using the heat from the air to maintain a perfect temperature. This means that whether it is warm or cool outside, your heat pump can regulate the warmth of the water so that you can use it for a longer period throughout the year.

More Economical Than a Gas Pool Heater

A key point to remember is that a pool heat pump is strikingly different from a gas pool heater in terms of running costs.A gas pool heater works by burning fuel. The fundamental difference is that the pump is designed to use a small amount of electricity because it is transferring heat rather than generating it. It stands to reason that a pool heat pump is going to use less energy than a gas heater. This is why it is such a good option when you are looking at ways to extend the season in the most cost-effective way possible.

The Mechanics of How a Heat Pump Works

A pool pump is designed to draw cool water from the pool through a filter and into the heat pump heater. Outside air is then drawn into the heat pump so that it can pass over the refrigerant-filled evaporator coils. The coil then transfers heat into the refrigerant by working as an evaporator.

The absorbed heat becomes a gas which then passes through a compressor, which then sends the hot gas through the condenser. Once the condenser transfers the heat to the cooler pool water the heated water is returned to the water. This brilliant design means that it can also work for cooling too.

You don’t have to fully understand all the mechanics going on to produce the right temperature for your pool but you will definitely appreciate how it is helping to extend your enjoyment of the pool for longer.

Isn’t it time you maximized your enjoyment of the swimming pool in your backyard with a pool heat pump?
