A swimming pool heat pump is the only way to truly "heat" one's pool. Heat pump technology is amazing in that it has an efficiency rate of 500%. This means that a heat pump gives back 5x the amount of heat energy than it uses in electrical energy. A 12.5Kw heat pump will thus require only 2.5Kw electricity to generate 12.5Kw of heat energy with which to heat a pool.
Swimming pool heat pumps can be set to 40 degrees Celsius and can comfortably maintain a pool temperature of around 35 degrees Celsius.
Benefits of heating a swimming pool with a heat pump include:
- the swimming season can be extended to up to 9 months each year
- the set temperature is maintained regardless of the weather (except during winter months)
- the whole family and all your friends will suddenly want to swim (most people, especially adults, prefer "warm" water to swim in)
- night time swimming becomes a family past time since the water is constantly "warm"
