Heat the pool with a heat pump - this is how a pool heat pump works

Why should I heat my pool with a pool heat pump?

• An energy-efficient and environmentally friendly heating. This gives a saving of 65 - 80% compared to electric heating.

• It is a logical investment. The investment cost pays off quickly.

• The pool season can be extended considerably. If you follow the recommendations in the product sheet, you can get 27 degrees in the pool from May to September. It can be extended further if you choose a larger model or a split model.

• You get warm in the pool even during cloudy summers when the pool heat pump, unlike a solar collector, is not directly dependent on the number of hours of sunshine.

• Quick and easy installation. Only connect the pool's circulation system and electricity to the pump. It is much easier to install than a heat exchanger or solar collector.

• Easy to maintain. The cleaning can be done with a sponge or similar from time to time. When it's winter, you just need to drain it and cover it with a winter cover. More than that is not really needed.

How does a pool heat pump work?

A pool heat pump works by using the ambient air to heat the water in the pool. In short, it is an air / water heat pump for pools.

Gullberg & Jansson sells pool heat pumps, which are primarily used for heating, but it is also possible to reverse the process so that the water is cooled down instead.

The pool heat pump uses electrical energy to draw in the surrounding air through its evaporator part with a fan. There, the heat from the air is taken up by the pump's liquid refrigerant. The heat causes the refrigerant to change to gaseous form and the hot gas is then transferred to the compressor. In the compressor, the pressure is raised, which in turn raises the temperature. This forms a very hot gas which passes to the condenser, also called the heat exchanger, in which the heat from the hot gas is transferred to the pool water circulating through the condenser. The heated water is then taken to the pool and the refrigerant, which when it has given off its heat returns to liquid form, is returned to the evaporator part to restart the process.

The pool season usually lasts from May to September, which coincides with what are usually the warmest months of the year. This gives the pool heat pump optimal conditions and allows it to work very efficiently as its efficiency depends on the temperature of the surrounding air and the temperature of the pool water.

Pool heat exchanger

Heat exchangers provide fast heating of your pool

A heat exchanger is used to transfer heat from one medium to another without mixing them.

Phalén heat exchangers are made of titanium, thermoplastic or stainless steel SIS2348. The heat exchangers are available both as spiral and tube heat exchangers and both types have cross-flow. Cross flow means that the hot medium flows in the opposite direction to the cold, which gives the pump maximum power.

The heat exchangers can be connected to a wood, pellet, electric or oil boiler as well as a heat pump or solar collector system. They are available in different materials and designs to suit all types of installations and needs
