How to choose a Heat Pump Pool Heater

A pool heat pump is a worthwhile investment if you are looking to get more out of your backyard pool by extending your swimming season.

How to choose a Heat Pump Pool Heater

There are many variables to consider when choosing a new Heat Pump Pool Heating system.

The first step is to choose the type of pool heater. Each heating system offers its own benefits which should be put into consideration when choosing the best heating system for your pool. These types include:

While the initial outlay of an electric heat pump pool heater is more than a gas heater they typically have a much lower annual operating cost, as they offer a more efficient system. With proper maintenance, electric heat pump pool heaters will last longer than their gas counterpart, also saving you money in the long run.

Other aspects you should consider is the size, efficiency and cost of the system

What size pool pump heater do I need?

It is best to consult with a pool technician to get accurate analysis for your specific swimming pool to determine pool heater size.

Sizing a heat pump pool heater involves many factors. Basically, a heater is sized according to the surface area of the pool and the difference between the pool and the average air temperatures. Other factors also affect the heating load for outdoor pools, such as wind exposure, humidity levels, and cool night temperatures. Therefore, pools located in areas with higher average wind speeds at the pool surface, lower humidity, and cool nights will require a larger heater

To calculate an approximate heater size for an outdoor swimming pool, follow these steps:

  1. Determine your desired swimming pool temperature.
  2. Determine the average temperature for the coldest month of pool use.
  3. Subtract the average temperature for the coldest month from the desired pool temperature. This will give you the temperature rise needed.
  4. Calculate the pool surface area in square metres.

Note: Using a pool blanket will also save and reduce the size of the heat pump required.
