In some regions of Australia natural gas heating is unavailable or uneconomical to run. This doesn’t mean you have to miss out on family fun and entertainment in your swimming pool.
Swimming pool heat pumps are a great alternative to gas heaters and are designed to heat a swimming pool using electricity. Delivering up to five times more energy in heat than it consumes electricity, the pool heat pump technology is based on the same principals employed by air conditioners and refrigerators. The inverter pool heat pump extracts latent heat from the atmosphere, with 80% of the required power coming from the air. The warmer it is, the better it works.
The use of electric swimming pool heat pumps has become extremely popular especially with the introduction of inverter technology, which reduces the overall running cost. A correctly sized electric pool heat pump can provide a consistent year-round heating solution for pool owners who want to use the pool on a frequent basis. All of Supreme Heating’s pool heating pumps are excellent swimming pool heating solutions as they are extremely energy efficient without compromising heating performance.
To realise the operating savings and efficiency of inverter technology it is critical to maintain a consistent temperature within 2°C of the desired pool water temperature. Therefore, pool heat pumps and electric pool heating solutions must incorporate the installation and use of a pool cover.
Swimming pool heat pumps also provide a solution for situations where traditional solar pool heating roof space has been allocated to photovoltaic (PV) electricity panels. The size of the PV solar pool heating system should allow for the energy requirements of the electric pool heat pump in addition to the household. The consumer must take this into consideration when sizing the PV solar pool heating system for the home. The risk of not doing so can result in generated power for the home being consumed by the pool heat pump.
How much can an electric pool heat pump raise the temperature?
Unlike solar pool heating, a pool heat pump will also work in low temperatures—depending on the model, it could even still be warming your water on sub-zero days. It will, of course, be less efficient when there is less ambient heat in the air.
Which is the Best Heat Pump – Types of Swimming Pool Heat Pumps
At Supreme Heating, we offer three extremely energy efficient pool heat pump products that come in a range of sizes. The Heatseeker VortexE Inverter Swimming Pool Heat Pump will work in temperatures as low as 10°C, comes in sizes from 9kW to 17kW, and can achieve an amazing maximum COP of 9.9.
The Heatseeker VortexPro Inverter Swimming Pool Heat Pump will heat and cool your pool water, if required. It operates up to a whopping 15.0 COP and can be bought in sizes from 10kW all the way up to a 35kW three-phase version.
Our commercial-grade pool heat pump, the Heatseeker Vortex C Inverter Swimming Pool Heat Pump can deliver an even higher COP of 16.0 and will warm a pool of up to 400,000 litres in size.
Energy Efficient Swimming Pool Heat Pumps Across Australia
Our Heatseeker VortexE inverter pool heat pumps are designed to heat the pool by extracting heat from the outside air. The unique and innovative DC inverter technology uses a variable-speed compressor which offers greater efficiency and lower operating costs. The spiral titanium heat exchanger combined with the super-quiet operation and soft start technology further enhances the efficiency and lifespan of the Heatseeker VortexE inverter pool heat pump.
The Heatseeker VortexPro Pool Heat Pump offers the ability to dynamically vary the working frequency of the inverter compressor, boasting even greater performance. This, coupled with the synchronisation of the fan and compressor speeds, optimises air flow to and from the swimming pool heat pump. The enhanced technology of the VortexPro provides up to 50% higher efficiency with a COP of up to 15 compared to an on/off pool heat pump.
The Heatseeker VortexC commercial pool heat pump range is designed to cope with the demands of aquatic facilities, regardless of size and location. The VortexC inverter pool heat pumps are the most efficient way to heat a commercial pool with low operating costs.
The Heatseeker VortexC pool heat pumps are also available for large domestic swimming pools
