At What Temperature does a Pool Heat Pump Work
No one likes to swim in a cold pool, especially if there is a pool heater. And, if you own a pool heater, I’m sure you don’t particularly like playing waiting games. The pool heat pump, once considered a luxury, has become a necessity for pool owners everywhere. Pool heat pumps can add comfort to your swimming experience and extend your swimming season for several weeks. Swimming in early spring and late autumn will become comfortable, easy, and inexpensive.
How does a swimming pool heat pump work?
The swimming pool heat pump heats or cools the water passing through the heater like natural gas, propane or electric pool heater. When the pool water is sucked in through the evaporator coil, the pool is heated or cooled by the energy in the ambient air.
Liquid refrigerant helps convert the absorbed heat into gas that is delivered through the compressor. Then, the refrigerant that has absorbed the superheat enters the condenser, where it heats the water in the pool, and then the refrigerant returns to prepare to absorb the heat from the air. This process is repeated over and over again, because the heat comes from the outside air, the machine only needs very little energy to drive the engine, which makes the swimming pool heat pump extremely energy efficient.
Working temperature of swimming pool heat pump:
The heat pump is designed to raise the temperature of the swimming pool to the ideal swimming range, between 78 and 82 degrees Fahrenheit. Because they work by inhaling already warm air, they work best in humid areas where the ambient temperature remains above 60 degrees Fahrenheit. If the temperature drops below 60, most heat pumps will work, but if the temperature reaches 45 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit, it will automatically shut down. By automatically shutting down, the heat pump can prevent damage when the air is too cold. Leomon Technology’s heat pumps range from 50,000 Btu for small swimming pools to 135,000 Btu for large swimming pools. Pool owners in mild climates will want to consider using a heat pump to extend your swimming season.
Because heat pumps do not use fossil fuels to heat water, heat pumps are highly efficient and cost-effective. Heat pumps are not ideal for every climate, but in areas where the temperature rarely drops below 60 degrees Fahrenheit (except in winter), they are an excellent choice for extending the season. The heat pump will not emit any pollutants into the air, which can reduce your costs and provide an environmentally friendly heating solution for heating your swimming pool.
The swimming pool cover retains heat in the swimming pool, and most of the energy used to heat the swimming pool will be dissipated into the air. The use of swimming pool covers with heat pumps can save up to 50% of the energy costs of your swimming pool.
Functions and tips for using swimming pool heat pump:
1. Very suitable for use in mild and humid climates that rarely fall below 60 degrees Fahrenheit
2. You can extend your season for several months, whether it is in the early spring before the swimming season or the late autumn after the swimming season
3. Capacity ranges from 50K BTU for small pools to 135K BTU for large pools
4. Should be used with swimming pool cover to reduce heat loss
5. Easy to use and easy to maintain
6. No need for fossil fuels, clean operation and no emissions
7. Very cost-effective and extremely low operating costs
8. When the temperature drops below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, most heat pumps will automatically shut down to prevent damage.
9. Small size, easy to install
