Why Choose a Heat Pump System ?

If you’re looking to heat a pool or spa, you have a few water temperature control options. While electric and gas heaters cost less than a heat pump or solar heating system, they cost twice as much to run. Heat Pumps and solar heating systems quickly pay for themselves with dramatically reduced operating costs. See graph below:

Solar Systems vs. Heat Pumps

While there’s a lot of hype about how environmentally responsible and less expensive solar pool heating is, it is only as good as the day. If the sun is shining, the pool is being heated. If it isn’t, chances are, your pool won’t be.

Heat pumps have a higher up-front price and while it boasts a low monthly operating cost, it is still slightly higher than a solar system. The big difference: Heat Pumps are Weather independent. After all, you are investing in a system to use your pool as you please, not when the weather allows.

Below is comparison between both systems:

Heat Pump

  • Low monthly operating cost
  • Energy efficient
  • Not dependent upon weather for heat
  • Lasts up to 20 years
  • Uses renewable energy
  • Emits no harmful chemicals
  • Keeps water at 28-32 degrees C year round
  • ABS and stainless steel cabinets and titanium tube heat exchanges

Solar Heater

  • Low monthly operating cost
  • Energy efficient
  • Dependent on weather for heat
  • Lasts up to 15 years
  • Uses renewable energy
  • Emits no harmful chemicals
  • Only extends your season, will not maintain 28 degrees in winter
  • Requires more maintenance due to faster weathering and decay
