Air Source Heat Pumps For Swimming Pool Heating And Cooling

Pools are a great way to stay active during the winter months and cool off on hot summer days; however, if your pool is not properly heated or cooled, you may not enjoy it as much as you should. Many homeowners and business owners use air source heat pumps to keep their pools at an ideal temperature all year so that they can get the most out of their pools. Continue reading to learn more about air source heat pumps for swimming pool heating and cooling.

What is an Air Source Heat Pump? 

An air source heat pump (ASHP) is a device that converts energy from one form to another by using external air. ASHPs absorb outside air and convert it to thermal energy using a refrigerant (heat) and, because of this method of energy transfer, ASHPs are extremely efficient and cost-effective, as they can provide year-round comfort while using very little electricity. Furthermore, ASHPs emit no emissions or pollutants.

How do Air Source Heat Pumps work for pool heating and cooling? 

ASHP units can transfer heat from outside air, which can then be used to efficiently heat or cool a pool. They are installed outside of the pool area and are linked to a control box near the pool. When the pool needs to be heated or cooled, the control box sends a signal to the ASHP unit. The ASHP then draws in fresh air from outside and compresses it through its refrigerant coils, releasing heat to warm the pool water. The ASHP removes heat from the pool water and transfers it outside of the pool area during the cooling process. The system is highly efficient as it uses a small amount of electricity to transfer an abundant amount of heat through its coils.

Benefits of an ASHP for heating and cooling a pool

An air source heat pump is an effective and efficient way of heating or cooling a pool as it uses a small amount of electricity to transfer a large amount of heat through its coils. Heat pumps absorb heat from the air rather than producing it, so they are much less expensive to operate than traditional gas and electric heating systems. They are not only less expensive to operate, but they are also simple to instal and maintain. Furthermore, because these systems are completely sealed and have no moving parts (other than fans), they require little maintenance and have long lifespans – up to 20 years! Finally, because these systems emit no emissions, they are ideal for those looking for eco-friendly heating/cooling methods.
