We offer AquaCal heat pumps, EcoStealth Heat Pumps, Rheem heat pumps, Built Rightheat pump, Pentair heat pumps, Gulfstream heat pumps, just to name a few. We can replace your existing heat pump or install a new heat pump. All you have to do is call us and we'll do the rest. The process is very simple. The most important aspect of the installation is making sure you install a bonding wire from the pool heat pump to existing pool equipment. In addition make sure you install a check valve after the heat pump and before the sanitation device. This will prevent Chlorine gas from traveling back to the heat exchanger and causing a premature failure to your new unit.
*Note: If a company tells you a permit is not required for any reason or that you can pull the permit yourself, do NOT let them do your job. They are likely unlicensed and it will cost much more in the long run when you need to bring that heat pump up to code to sell your home.
Rheem is company that you probably recognize. Thats because you've likely seen an air conditioning system or water heater with their name on it. These guys know what they are doing when it comes to heating and cooling. Reliable and easy to procure parts for are two reasons to choose Rheem.
Generally speaking the volume of the pool will dictate the size of the pool heater. When we reference to size we are referring to BTU or British Thermal Unit. A BTUI is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit.
Location can have two references when in terms of pool heat pumps.
1. Physical location: of the heat pump, ideally out in the open not in a covered area
2. Pool location: is it surrounded by trees covering pool? is a pool screen enclosure on the pool? What direction does the pool face?
The Coefficient of Performance (COP) of a pool heater is the amount of heat produced and the amount of money spent. What does this really mean? In my words to you, the COP is amount heat you get for each dollar you spend heating. The higher the COP the more efficient the heat pump will be at transferring heat to your water for the money spent to run the unit.
Most heaters these days are able to remotely controlled via pool automation systems. Sometimes extra temperature sensors are needed to control heat and cool functions on a heat pump. NOT every pool heat pump manufacturer has the ability to control heat and cool functions.
Does your pool get to hot to swim in? If the answer is yes, then you will need a unit that unit with dual functions of heating and cooling.
