pompe à chaleur de piscine[Pool heat pump] uses electricity to harness the heat present in the surrounding. The water present in the swimming pool passes through the filter of the pump. The fan of the pump, then draws the hot air outside and directs it over the evaporator coil. Inside this coil lies liquid refrigerant that absorbs the heat from the air and transform it into gaseous form. This gas, then passes into the compressor and then enters into the compressor. Through the compressor, it enters condenser and transfers the heat of the warm gas into the cooler pool water. Heat pumps that have higher efficiency usually have use scroll compressors rather than the reciprocal compressors of standard units. When using électrolyseur au sel[salt chlorinators] with gas or electric heat pumps, care should be taken to ensure that the production of chlorine is adjusted according to the size of the pool, as the heaters internal components can be damaged by excessive chlorine levels.
Before purchasing a heat pump pool heater, you should consider following points:
- Compatibility of the size of the pump to that of the swimming pool
- Efficiency of the chauffage piscine[pool heating] pumps
- Costs of the pumps offered by different vendors
