It’s warming up, and it’s time to get your pool swim ready. Get in the pool early and start enjoying it now. Watch as David highlights the electric heat pump.
What is an Electric Heat Pump?
A heat pump is an energy efficient way to move heat from one place to another. For example, pool owners use heat pumps to transfer heat in their pool water.
When you use an electric heat pump, you can enjoy your pool in the spring and fall. So, while your water may not be quite warm enough to swim, your pool heater can kick in and grab the air to heat your pool evenly. This means it’s more cost effective than a gas heater.
How to Choose a Heat Pump
You’ll find that electric heat pumps are less costly to operate on an annual basis than gas pool heaters. And if you maintain your heat pump, it typically lasts longer than a gas heater, too. So while you may spend a little more upfront, you’ll save money in the long run. Expect a well maintained pool heater to last up to 10 years.
When it comes to choosing your heat pump, you want to consider size, cost, and efficiency.

Installation and Maintenance
The most important thing you can do once you get your heater is to have it installed correctly and then properly maintain it. This way it will run as efficiently as possible.
Do take care to read your owner’s manual and stay on a regular maintenance schedule so your pool is always warm and ready to use.
You don’t have to wait until it’s 90 degrees outside to swim with an electric heat pump.
