Are Heat Pumps Energy Efficient?

When you live in Englewood, Florida and have a swimming pool there, the heat to warm the pool water is plentiful and, best of all, free! Florida swimming pool owners benefit from the heat of the day even on days when it’s cool because the air will still retain ambient heat. The ambient heat can be converted to more than 100,000 BTUs to effectively heat your pool water when you use an air-source heat pump system.

Are Heat Pumps Energy Efficient?How do heat pumps work? 

A heat pump system will pull in ambient heat from the air, concentrate it with a compressor and transfer it to your swimming pool water. The way it works is through a highly energy efficient heat exchanger. How much energy is expended? Zero! Yes, zero energy is expended to creat the heat for the swimming pool water. The only cost incurred will be the electricity used to transfer the heat to the water. This all works together to effectively lower the cost of operating the heat pump.

Are Heat Pumps Energy Efficient?

When you use an air-source heat pump, heat will be extracted from the air. An air-source heat pump works more efficiently when the ambient air is higher than 45 degrees. In the Englewood, Florida and surrounding areas this means the pool water can be maintained at a level 80 degrees year round when you use an air-source heat pump.

An air-source heat pump can be reversed to cool the water temperature on hot days.

The savings, when using an air-source heat pump – can be up to 70% less than if you use a gas-fired heater and close to 90% less than using an electrical resistance heater unit.

Heat is transferred — only — not created when you use an air-source heat pump and htis means no fossil fuels are being used to heat or cool the water. Also, no emissions are being created. Using the heat pump means you are operating your pool heating system in a way that is not only energy efficient, but environmentally friendly as well. You will have a smaller carbon footprint using an air-source heater.

Noise pollution, if that’s a concern, will be reduced when you choose an air-source heater over a gas-fired heater.
