For swimming pool owners that would like to swim all year, do not want solar panels on the roof of their home and don’t mind spending some money on heating costs, then the pool heatpump is the best option for you.
Swimming pool heater pumps AKA heatpumps or reverse air conditioners have gone from glory to glory. If we compare the first models developed 40 years ago to today there have been massive changes.
Two of the most noticeable changes are the design of the heat exchanger and the design of the compressor. Both are equally important.
The heat exchangers of today are made from Titanium, which is virtually bullet proof. This was introduced as no other metal could withstand the corrosive effects of swimming pool water chemistry especially if a slat chlorinated pool was to be heated.
The latest technology compressors offer a high coefficient of performance (C.O.P) Basically for every R1,00 of electricity you put in you get out R4,00 worth of heating. In other words they are fairly cost effective to run. The units are also silent and built into rust free casings.
Installations usually take less than 2 hours. The functions of the heat pump are easy to understand similar to that of a home air-conditioning unit.
We supply and install models for small to large commercial swimming pools. Kilowatt sizes range from 3.8kW to 100kW output.
