Electric Heat Pumps
Electric heat pumps have become far more popular over the last five years with many clients opting not to have matting on the roof for aesthetic reasons. As well as this factor, clients also like that they have a unit they can monitor and control thus giving more swimming time and usage. Electric heat pumps are controlled by a simple keypad with the only adjustment required being temperature control up and down. Therefore the user has more control over the temperature meaning a longer swim season particularly, pre and post Summer.
- Pool size has generally decreased in urban areas therefore many pools only need a small heat pump to heat the water
- Many homes now have or are planning to have PV Solar Panels on their roof, which is a big advantage in saving running costs
- Electric Heat Pumps have also reduced in price due to demand and so it is almost a cost equivalent to solar installation for the smaller pools.
