When solar is not feasible, a heat pump is recommended for heating your swimming pool. A Heat Pump, when properly sized, can maintain any desired pool temperature between 80 and 90 degrees, regardless of outside weather conditions.
Types of Heat Pump Pool Heaters
There are two basic types of pool heat pumps. The most common is an "Air-Source", the other being "Water-Source". Air Source Heat Pumps use air as a heat source. Water Source Heat Pumps get their heat source from water i.e. lake, river, or well water. Water source units are generally used for special applications. Please contact us for more information.
Longevity and Maintenance
Heat pumps will typically last between 10 to 15 years or more. Because heat pumps are a mechanical device with many moving parts, they require periodic service by an A/C technician. Heat pump factory warranties vary from 5 - 15 years.
