Heat and Cool your Pool all year round

Enjoy your swimming pool year-round with a pool heat pump

Swimming pools are a great way to cool down during the summer, but what about when the weather turns? The temperature of your pool can drop substantially after just a couple of cloudy days. In fact, around 90% of pools that aren’t heated are only used during the summer months. What a waste!

A heated swimming pool is an ideal solution for enjoying your backyard all year round, keeping your pool at a comfortable temperature and potentially saving money on your energy bill in the process. Here’s everything you need to know.

What is a pool heat pump?

A pool heat pump is, you guessed it, a device that is used to heat swimming pools. While pool heat pumps have been available in New Zealand for the last few years, they’ve become increasingly popular with the reduction in international travel, as families want to make the most of what they have in their own backyard. 

At Daisy Pool Covers, we stock two different heat pump models, RYANZ Pool Heat Pumps for medium-large pools and AGI Mini Heat Pumps for smaller pools and spas.

How does an inverter heat pump work?

Inverter heat pumps for your pool use the same technology as your home heating, using minimal electricity for maximum impact. It does this by using a refrigerant to transfer heat from the surrounding air into the water. This refrigerant is used to cool the air inside the heat pump, which in turn heats the water.  

This means that you can heat your pool during the colder months without using too much power and running up your energy bill. The RYANZ Pool Heat Pump is particularly energy efficient, using just 1kW of electricity to produce 15kW, meaning heating your pool has never been so affordable. 

The benefits of pool heat pumps

Heat pumps are an incredibly efficient way to heat a pool quickly and evenly. Unlike gas or oil-fired systems, there is no need to generate heat – only to transfer it. Solar-heated systems are a close second in terms of energy efficiency, but they’re not much use when the sun dips behind a cloud, or from March – November, for that matter! So, with all of that taken into account, pool heat pumps are great value for money. 

Heat pumps are also easy to install, are relatively low maintenance and can last for many years with proper care. 

They’re environmentally friendly too, as they don’t release any emissions into the atmosphere. As a result, using a heat pump to heat a pool is an excellent choice for those looking for an efficient and eco-friendly way to enjoy their swimming pool year-round.

In summary, pool heat pumps are:

  • Energy efficient, which can save you money on your power bill.
  • Durable and built to last.
  • Eco-friendly
  • Suitable for pool cooling or heating

And, if you opt for a RYANZ Pool Heat Pump, you’ll enjoy the added benefits of:

  • Super energy-saving mode
  • Automatic defrosting function
  • WIFI compatibility
  • Soft start
  • Super silent

Can you add heating to an existing pool?

Yes, a pool heat pump can be retrofitted to a swimming pool. The process for in-ground pool heating is relatively straightforward, and in most cases, the pump can be added to the existing plumbing without any major modifications. 

It’s important to hire a qualified technician to install the heat pump, as improper installation can void the warranty and cause damage to the unit. Once the heat pump is installed, you’ll be able to enjoy your pool year-round, regardless of the weather. 

How can I heat my pool?

There are a few things to consider before installing a pool heat pump. It’s important to note that a pool heat pump will only work if the pool is properly insulated. If the pool is not properly insulated, the heat pump will not be able to effectively transfer heat from the air to the water. 

In addition, it is important to make sure that the heat pump is correctly sized for the pool. To efficiently raise the temperature of the water, you need the right tool for the job. For RYANZ pumps, use the following guidelines when choosing your system:

  • 13KW: For pools up to 65,000L
  • 17KW: For pools up to 85,000L
  • 21KW: For pools up to 100,000L

Finally, it is important to make sure that the heat pump is installed in a location where it will get adequate airflow. If the heat pump is installed in an area where there is insufficient airflow, it will not be able to operate efficiently.

If you’re looking for a way to save money and energy, then a pool heat pump is a great solution. They are energy efficient, durable, eco-friendly, and can help you maintain a consistent temperature in your pool. So if you’re ready to take the plunge, then contact Daisy today and get the ball rolling for summer.
