Utilizing a heat pump gives you the ability to heat a pool for about 25% of the cost of heating it with gas. This provides better ability to heat your pool for the entire swim season and not just as is needed. The heat pumps that AquaCal produce have a life expectancy of 12 to 15 years so you can heat your pool rain or shine and worry free as well as they virtually have no effect on your carbon footprint.

How Does a Heat Pump Work?

A heat pump does not actually burn energy to create heat. It only relies on a small amount of that energy to transfer free heat from the surrounding air to your pool water. Essentially, a heat pump is a mechanical solar energy collector.

The fan draws air through the evaporator, an incredible 85% of the heat that goes into your pool is collected here. The air that is cooled down is then ejected out of the top of the machine. Located on the front of the machine, there’s a port where the cooler pool water comes in and another port where the warmer water leaves and goes back into the pool.

Why Should I Heat My Pool?

There’re many benefits of heating your pool. These include maximizing the enjoyment of your swimming pool investment. Exercise, relax, swim, and entertain in warm water that is comfortable for everybody. Extend pool season, even when there’s a chill in the air. Also, don’t forget about warmer water being good for issue like arthritis, and muscle aches, etc. Using a heat pump gets you more quality time with family and friends overall. Who wouldn’t want that?

How Can AquaCal Heat Pumps Help You?

AquaCal uses their patented ThermoLink® Heat Exchanger to reduce the cost of operation by reducing the resistance to flow. Don’t be tricked by heat pumps that have a lower initial purchase price as they typically have significantly higher operating costs eliminating that price difference fairly quickly. These AquaCal heat pumps take advantage of using a variable speed pool pump by reducing the RPMs needed to achieve the same flow rate (pump affinity laws). The heat exchanger actually allows AquaCal heat pumps to operate on speeds as low as 1560 RPM compared to other pumps who have to run over 2350. This truly is a significant reduction, saving the pool owner anywhere from $25 to $94 per month when a variable speed pump is being used.
