Things to Consider When Choosing a Pool Heat Pump

Issue Time:2022/03/31
Have you ever looked out the window in winter and wished you could go swimming? Does cold pool water break your heart when the temperature drops and you want to swim again? All you need is a swimming pool heat pump. There are many types of pool heat pumps on the market, we need to choose according to our own needs. In this article, we'll discuss what you should consider before deciding to choose pool heat pumps.

What kind of pool heat pump do you need?

Heats up quickly and lasts a long time

Most pool heaters can heat the entire pool, but not all pool pumps can do so quickly. Some pool heaters take a lot of time to heat the water. You need a pool pump that can heat your pool in a short amount of time, which saves a lot of time.

Cheap price

Obviously, cheap heaters will have some performance issues or other issues. If you want to spend less money in the long run (less energy and maintenance costs), it is recommended that you invest more in a heater. If you choose a heater that costs less at first, you may end up spending more later.

Low noise

Your community may have noise restrictions or you want to make sure your pool area remains relaxed and quiet. Some heater fans, pumps, or motors can make noise, so make sure you understand the noise profile of your pool pump before making your choice.

The right size

It's important to make sure your heater is the right size for your pool. A heater that is too big will consume more energy for no reason, while a heater that is too small will have to work overtime to heat the entire pool.

What type of pool heater?

There are three main different types of pool heaters on the market. Consider your needs when choosing the type you want.

Solar pool pump

The most obvious benefits of solar energy are low energy costs and no negative impact on the environment, and it is usually installed in rooftop locations. Of course, in winter, the amount of sunlight available will be limited, but usually, a solar heating system will extend the pool season beyond summer and spring. Solar heating systems are usually powered by pool filter pumps, but sometimes a booster pump is required on high roofs.


Electric pool pump

The electric heat pump option is the most energy-efficient option for those who want to use the pool year-round. They can run for extended seasons or year-round, and electric heat pumps represent a great option for low energy costs. They do heat water at a slower rate and cost more initially, but they have more long-term benefits than some of the other options.

Gas heat pump

Gas heaters are ideal for providing reliable, fast, and consistent heating on demand. The purchase cost is modest, but they do require a suitable independent gas supply, usually natural gas or LPG, depending on the local market. When combined with a matching solar heating system, operating costs are minimized and are also more environmentally friendly.
