Heat pumps are effectively a large reverse cycle air conditioning system with a heat exchange for the pool water. The efficiency of a heat pump minimises running costs and is cheaper to run than a gas pool heaters, however are limited to the outside ambient air temperature. Heat pumps provide a great alternative to solar pool heating without the need to put black strips on the roof and a more constant pool temperature.
Astral heat pumps produce more than 5 times the heat energy than the energy used to run them. This is called a co-efficiency of performance. A higher outside temperature, the higher the C.O.P (co-efficiency of performance) and the less it costs to run. A swimming pool heat pump is a great heating option based on Perth’s lovely weather. It can greatly extend the swimming pool season at a reasonable price. For more information on the products download the brochures below.
