Electric pool heat pumps
But for pool owners in the southern part of the country, an electronic heat pump can be a reliable year around solution. Electric heat pumps are also a good option if your swimming pool gets continuous use with people coming and going numerous times a week. With high-use pools it’s difficult to always plan ahead every time you want to swim. In such instances, a heat pump would be operating continuously to maintain an even flow of warm water in order to raise the pool temperature. The lower operating costs of an electric heat pump are ideal for these usage patterns. If you were to ever use a gas pool heater in this way it would most likely become cost prohibitive. Typically, electric heat pumps are more expensive up front, but their value increases the more a pool is used — over the long run heating a pool at nearly half the cost of a gas pool heater.
