If you have gone to the time and expense of installing a swimming pool at home, you will want to use it as much as possible. However, while the weather may be conducive to a large degree, you may not be able to take advantage of your asset during the winter months. Perhaps it is time for you to install a high-quality heating system using the latest technology so that you can enjoy the water year-round, but what do you need to take into account, and what tech should you employ?
Assessing Your Needs
As you may know, there are various options, but one of the most favoured involves inverter technology. Before you begin, you will need to take into account a variety of different factors, including your usage patterns, whether you have any insulation in place, the location and the desired temperature.
Generally speaking, the higher the desired water temperature, the larger the inverter pool heat pump you will need. You may need an even larger pump if you live in a more temperate part of the country and want to extend your swimming season as far as possible.
An inverter heat pump absorbs the temperature from the surrounding air and transfers it to the pool water. This is similar in many respects to the system that many people use to heat the inside of their homes. Significantly, this type of approach is highly efficient and will consume far less energy than a standard heat pump.
Efficiency and Speed
Standard pumps may utilise an 'on/off' approach, whereas an inverter pump has a variable speed motor. This will adjust as necessary to get to the required temperature and consequently maintain it, and once again, this is highly efficient. Usually, the inverter pump is quicker than the alternative as well, and you will be able to achieve your desired temperature in much less time.
The inverter is also much kinder to your electrical system. Due to its quiet and variable operation, you can avoid any spike associated with an on/off cycle.
When planning for an inverter heat pump, remember that it must be installed at ground level outside and in an unrestricted area. You will need to clear away any vegetation so that the air can be gathered and dispersed effectively during operation.
Talk with your plumber for further details so that you can get this type of highly efficient technology in place before the temperature drops.Share
