Nothing can give you the chills like a dip in the pool on a cold day in New England. But with AquaComfort’s state-of-the-art heating systems, you can enjoy your pool year-round!
AquaComfort’s heating systems use advanced technology to provide a reliable and efficient heating solution that will keep you comfortable in your pool. These state-of-the-art systems have low operating and installation costs and provide more heat than comparable systems.
The rest of this article will go into more detail about how these heating systems work, the cost of running, and their many benefits. Let’s get started!
Above-Ground Pool Heating in New England: Costs, How It’s Done, Benefits, and More
AquaComfort’s above-ground heating systems use advanced technology and high-quality materials to provide the most effective and efficient way to heat your pool.
These heating systems work by pulling in cool air from the surrounding environment and using a complex, multi-stage heating process to warm it up before pumping it back into your pool.
At the heart of these heating systems is a powerful and energy-efficient heat exchanger, which transfers heat from the surrounding air into your pool water. This allows the system to use less energy to maintain an even temperature in your pool, no matter how cold it gets outside.
The exchanger is housed in a compact cabinet designed to withstand the elements. A compressor inside the cabinet pressurizes the refrigerant gas and pushes it through the heat exchanger, absorbing and transferring additional heat.
The hot refrigerant gas moves into a condenser, which releases the heat, turns it back into a liquid state and pulls this heat from the system. A thermal expansion valve then controls the refrigerant flow and maintains a constant pressure, ensuring efficient operation at all times.
The cooled liquid refrigerant then cycles back into the heat exchanger to start the process again, thus completing the heating loop. This process is repeated over and over again, keeping your pool at a comfortable temperature no matter what the weather is like outside.
AquaComfort’s heat pump pool heating systems operate at temperatures as low as 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius), giving you year-round access to your pool.
Costs of Running an AquaComfort Heating System
The exact cost of running an AquaComfort above-ground heating system will depend on several factors, including the size of the pool heater in relation to your pool, the outside temperature, and the system’s efficiency rating.
Heat pump pool heaters are available in several different sizes, determined by the amount of BTU output and horsepower they provide. A 3.5 hp/75,000 BTU pool heater is a good option for smaller pools and requires less electricity to run than larger systems.
On the other hand, A 6 hp/125,000 BTU pool heater is a good option for larger pools and will provide more heating power at a higher energy cost.
The efficiency rating for a heat pump pool heater is determined by the COP or Coefficient of Performance, a measure of how much heat is produced for every unit of energy used. The higher the COP, the more energy-efficient and cost-effective a system is. For instance, a system with a COP of 5.0 will cost less than a system with a COP of 3.5, all other factors equal.
The cost of performance is also affected by outside temperature. The cooler it is outside, the more energy a pool heater will require to keep your pool at the desired temperature.
AquaComfort’s heat pump pool heaters are more efficient than other pool heating systems. The cost of operating these systems can be up to 30% lower than other heat pumps and up to 80% lower than conventional heaters.
With an AquaComfort heat pump pool heater, you can keep your pool comfortable and warm for less money than other systems, allowing you to enjoy your pool more often and for extended periods without worrying too much about the cost.
Additionally, installing an AquaComfort heat pump pool heater is easy and hassle-free. With their innovative design, these systems can be easily installed in various locations around your pool, providing ample and effective heating power no matter what the weather is like outside.
With regular maintenance, these systems will last for years without needing to be replaced. And they cost a lot less to run than traditional gas or electric heaters, making them an affordable and energy-efficient choice for anyone with an above-ground pool.
