What are efficient ways to heat swimming pool water? Symbiont Service Corp. professionals answer
There are many ways in which to heat the water in your swimming pool. The geothermal professionals from Symbiont Service Corp. regularly get asked, “what are efficient ways to heat swimming pool water?” One of the best ways is by using a heat pumps. This piece of equipment provides an energy-efficient way to keep the pool water warm. The way a pool water heat pump works is that it utilizes electricity to transfer heat from the area surrounding the pump aka the ambient air, through the device and then transfers it into the pool water. Rather than generating heat, as most other models do, the use of the ambient air to heat the pool water is a more energy efficient way to extend your pool swim season.
To maximize energy savings, you will want to work with your pool heating professional to make certain you are investing in the proper size equipment for your unique swimming pool.
What does proper sizing mean and what determines that?
- What temperature do you want the pool water?
- What is the average temperature of the coldest month of the year that you will use the pool?
- How many degrees will the temperature need to rise in order to make the water swimmable?
- How big is the pool?
- What kind of landscaping surrounds it? Is it shaded? Open to wind? Secluded?
