Heated swimming pools used to be considered a luxury, but not anymore!
Even in sunny places like the Costa del Sol, a heat pump can extend your
swimming season beyond the hot summer months.
If you're thinking about renovating your pool, updating your tiles, or
updating your filtration system, why not add a heating system?
Our engineers covering the Costa del Sol can fully explain what options
you have for heated swimming pools.
In general, most people don't use unheated pools outside of
"swimming season" between the end of June and the beginning of
September. This means that for two-thirds of the year, most pool owners don't
use an unheated pool.
Aside from solar panels, electric pool heaters are the only legal and
economical way to heat your pool, but solar panels only prolong the pool
season, whereas a pool heat pump will give you a year-round swimming season.
If you're renting out your property to vacationers, having a heated pool
will give you an edge over your competitors and potentially increase your
vacation rental season. All vacationers want a heated pool!
Let's take a look at how a pool heater works:
1. Swimming pool heat pumps run on electricity and also use hot air from
the sun that helps increase the efficiency of the unit. Heat pump pool heaters
produce no heat. As the pool pump circulates the pool water, the water drawn
from the pool passes through the filter and the heat pump water heater.
2. As the pool pump circulates the pool water, the water drawn from the
pool passes through the filter and the heat pump water heater. Pool heaters
have a fan that draws in outside air and circulates it through an external
evaporator air coil.
3. The liquid refrigerant in the evaporator coil absorbs heat from the
outside air and turns into a gas. The hot gas in the coil then passes through
the compressor. The compressor adds heat, creating a very hot gas that goes
through the condenser. The condenser transfers heat from the hot gas to the
cooler pool water that circulates through the heater. The heated water is then
returned to the pool. As the hot gas flows through the condenser coil, it
returns to its liquid state and back to the evaporator, and the whole process
