How Do Swimming Pool Heat Pumps Work?

An air source heat pump is a fantastic solution for both commercial and domestic swimming pools. Powered by green electricity, using a heat pump for your swimming pool produces CO2-free energy which can be used for both heating and cooling. Thanks to their efficient and high-performance technology, heat pumps are suitable for swimming pools of all sizes and can be used all year round.

How does it work?

A heat pump does not actually generate heat in the traditional way. Instead, a heat pump draws heat from the outside atmosphere.

The warm air is extracted by a fan which is then circulated through an outer evaporator air coil. There is a liquid refrigerant present in the evaporator coil which absorbs heat and transforms it into gas. This hot gas is pumped into the compressor which in turn increases the heat.

The gas then passes through the heat exchanger condenser before the pool pump circulates the water from the swimming pool and passes it through a filter and the water heater. The hot gas transfers its heat to the water in this process and the warmer water flows back into the swimming pool, then the gas returns to liquid form and goes back to the evaporator.

The entire process repeats until the desired temperature is reached. This swimming pool heating system is economical, environmentally friendly and is one of the most efficient ways of heating your swimming pool. There are a number of benefits of this system that make it an important consideration for your heating requirements. Get in touch with our team today for more information.
