A swimming pool heat pump will greatly increase the amount of time that you will be able to stay in your swimming pool. The swimming pool heat pump will also save you money on the electricity bill, and it will even help to keep you warm during those colder days when you take a dip in your swimming pool. Many swimming pool owners are always looking for ways to save money, so the swimming pool heat pump is a necessity for most. But there are so many different swimming pool heat pumps available that it can be hard to know which one is the best one for you and your swimming pool.

There are two important factors to look for when choosing a swimming pool heat pump. First of all, it must be energy efficient. While all of them are able to be quite energy efficient, none of these do double duty as a swimming pool heating unit.

Solar operated units are definitely capable of converting the sunlight energy into heat for the swimming pools water, but unfortunately the solar panels need to be quite large for large swimming pools, so they are not really suitable for most homeowners. Most solar heated swimming pools heat the water by means of an ordinary heating element. These swimming pools heat the water with a solar panel that is installed right on top of the water. Another type of swimming pool heat pumps is the electric powered heat pumps. These types of swimming pools heat the water by means of an electric engine.

All of the above swimming pool heat pumps use electricity to heat the water. It is obvious that there are advantages and disadvantages to each of these types. If you are looking for an energy saving swimming pool pump you may want to choose the solar powered ones. Unfortunately, these require an extensive amount of space to install and the electricity consumption is high.

On the other hand, the operating cost of an on-grid or off-grid swimming pool heat pump is low compared to its electrical counterpart. The on-grid unit uses the available electricity from the grid to operate the unit. Off-grid swimming pool heat pump uses the utility company's power to operate the unit. Although this appears to be a more expensive way to operate, the money you save on utility bills will more than make up for the additional expense.

Installing an SPRSUN swimming pool heat pump unit is fairly simple, although the installation may be somewhat complicated. Usually the unit is installed outdoors where the sun rays can easily reach it. There are several different types of solar panels that are used to operate these swimming pool heat pumps. Generally the one that is most effective is a thin film of silicon, which is attached directly to the hot water tank. The heat flowing through the tubing that is in the middle of the tank heats the water as it passes through the film, which then returns the heat to the pool.

One disadvantage of installing an on-grid or off-grid swimming pool heat pump is that sometimes the unit will need to operate at night. In this case, a separate transfer unit is used to operate the heating and pumping system. Aquacal heat pumps operated in this manner can also be a bit noisy; this is one reason why they are usually installed outdoors.

An on-grid heater generally operates better when the swimming pool is below freezing. This means that you should add a second, independent heater in order to keep your pool at a comfortable temperature. On the other hand, most off-grid heat pumps have a backup battery, which stores the energy that is produced by the heating system. As long as there is power available from a utility source, the battery will be able to kick-start the system when it is cold enough to start operating your pool.
