An air source pool heat pump might not heat water as quickly as a gas or electric heater, but it's a great option for keeping a constant water temperature in a pool. SPRSUN inground swimming pool heat pumps, especially our R32 DC inverter pool heating pumps, are high-performance heat pumps that utilize a technology that enhances the efficiency use of energy to supply heat to the swimming pool. As a result, this ensures that the swimming pool constantly remains at an ideal temperature. They are energy saving, easy to use and cost-efficient.
A pool heat pump has three parts frequented by dirt, the heat exchanger, the fan blades, and the region inside. You have to turn off the power supply and unscrew the heat exchanger. When open, apply a degreaser to the exchanger using a soft brush. Give it time to loosen the soot and wash it using a garden hose. On the inside, ensure you clean the leaves and the muck, which accumulate with time on the pool heat pump’s bottom. A wet vac will suffice for the task. Lastly, with the fan blades, use a piece of clothing and a cleanser to clean the tips. The metal gills enclosing the fan should also be blown by a blower to remove accumulated dust.
Whether a heat pump will cool your pool or not will usually depend on the model. There are heat pumps that have heating and cooling modes conjoined in the same device. They use a reversing valve or even inverter technology. As such, they can defrost and keep heating even when temperatures are extremely quite low. Such heat pumps are able to extract heat energy from the surroundings if a heating need arises. Also, the process can be reversed by triggering a cooling sequence in which they pull more heat from the pool’s water and then transfer it into the air.
In general, heat pumps draw heat or cold from exterior outdoor air, ground, or water and transfer it indoors for warming or cooling. They are somewhat less expensive from an operational expense point of view. A heat pump graded as 100,000BTU will averagely consume around 5,000 watts, or 5KW every hour. Using it four hours a day will consume 20KW—a kilowatt of electricity costs anywhere between $.13 to $.16cents per hour. The rates will vary depending on the utility provider. Therefore, a heat pump running for an hour will need approximately $.80 and $3.2 power charge in a day.
For starters, a small pool (10000-20000 liters) a 13KWh heat pump will do the job. For medium pools (20000-40000 liters) a 15-18 KWh will be sufficient. For large pools (40000-60000 liters), a 21-23 KWh heat pump is ideal. These values, however, vary depending on the temperature of your region. To narrow down on the exact heat pump you need, you require 0.00116 KWh of power to heat one liter. Knowing your pool size and the degrees you want to raise your pool temperature by, you can accurately determine the heat pump you need using the formula given below. It is simply pool size in liters × 0.0016 KWh × degrees you wish to raise your pool water by. At SPURSUN, we have a wide range of quality pool heat pump to meet your need.
While electric, gas, and solar heaters have a short life span, a pool heat pump can outlast them all. The typical life span of a pool heat pump is about ten years or more. However, several key factors play a role in the life expectancy of a pool heat pump. You can extend the lifespan of your pool heat pump up to fifteen years or more if you are willing to put in a little effort. And it all starts with proper installation, care, and maintenance. Overall, a pool heat pump is a good investment that might supersede your expectations. SPRSUN heat pumps present all the qualities needed to last longer and work efficiently.
The location of the heat pump will, in a great way, affect how efficiently your heat pump will work. Ensure that your heat pump is close enough to your filter and not more than 25 feet away from the pool. If you place it away from the pool, the heated water will cool down before getting to the pool. It is also vital that you ensure that there are no obstructions near the heat pump. Give it at least 30 inches or more of clearance all around it. Doing so will ensure that there is sufficient air that gets into the heat pump. Once you install it, you can run it to see if it efficiently heats the pool.
Swimming pool water passes through the filter when the pool is being used to get rid of any dirt or debris. It is during this process that the water for a heated pool gets warmed up. What happens is, the heating pump takes in warm air from the outside and turns it into warm gas. As the warm gas passes through the pump's coils, it increases the heat in the compressor. As the water passes through this compressor, the energy is transferred into the water. The now warmed water returns to the pool and helps heat the water in the pool as well. The process repeats itself until the pool water is warm enough.
