Pool Heating Options and Proper Installation
When considering choosing a spa and pool heater, our customers have multiple options to choose from:
- Solar Energy
- Solar Water Heater
- Solar Panels
- EDPM Mats
- Solar Collectors
- Heat Pump
- Heat Exchanger
In comparing and contrasting these different methods, we believe the AquaComfort heat pump is a great investment that provides a multitude of benefits. These units are very efficient, resilient, and intuitive to use. In addition, our heat pumps are environmentally friendly. They also have long service lives with proper handling and care. A common misconception and concern is noise pollution, when in fact these units are extremely quiet. AquaComfort delivers more heat starting at lower temperatures, with virtually no harmful emissions and operate at less cost than any other product available to heat your pool.
Our Pool Heater Installation Process
You will need to locate your unit on a level surface within the model’s guidelines of the existing pool plumbing. Install the heat pump with the panel facing out. This will allow for easy accessibility for servicing. In addition to appropriately installing this device, you should ensure at a minimum there is adequate space on the back side and non-plumbing side for appropriate ventilation. You will also need to provide recommended space above, and in front of the unit for servicing. It is essential to ensure overhead clearance. This clearance safeguards against recirculating cold air and the unit going into defrost mode. This information can be found in the owner’s manual and installment instructions.
You may find it beneficial to have an authorized professional provide support ensuring the installation process is completed properly and safely. The AquaComfort models have varying guidelines requiring special consideration for ventilation and clearance.
What Distance From My Pool Should I Install a Heat Pump?
When installing the pool heater, the heat pump should be installed as close to the filtering system as possible. The heat pump should be no more than 25 feet away. Any more distance than this will diminish the ability for the system to heat the pool.
