Heat Seeker Heat Pumps
As fuel prices increase it is important you choose the most cost effective and energy efficient method of heating your pool
The efficiency of heat pumps is measured by a " coefficient of peformance" The Heat Seeker range of heat pumps produce a C.O.P of approximately 5. ie for every 1kw of electricity consumed, the Heatseeker will generate 5kw of heat for your pool water, remarkable when you consider that the most efficient electric and gas heaters prdce less than 1kw of heating for ecvery 1kw of consumed.
The capital outlay of purchasing a heatpump has in the past been higher than other methods of heating a swimming pool, but not now with the Heat Seeker range of Heat Pumps.
Which size is right for you.?
Firstly this Heatseeker range is designed for use betweem May and September and assumes that the desired pool temperature is 29 degrees C and the ambient air temperature is not less than 15 degrtes C nad of course you use a heat retention pool cover.
Heat pumps are widely accepted as the most economic method of reliably heating your
swimming pool to a constant temperature. Unlikefossil fuel boilers that consume more energy than they produce, a Calorex heat pump will produce up to five times the energy it consumes.
The heat pump principle is based upon refrigeration technology. This technology has a
unique ability to absorb energy from atmospheric air which it can then convert into useful heat.
Low operating cost
74% less emissions than an oil boiler
Heat pumps do not require flues or fuel
Heat pumps do not require large electrical supplies
Long service life
Heat pumps are fully automatic - just set the
thermostat and let the heat pump do the rest
Heat pumps can be installed outside
The Heating Method efficiency comparison
For every one kilowatt of power consumed a heat pump can produce up to five kilowatts of energy. Even on cloudy, cool days a heat pump will produce three times its energy input. A heat pumps efficiency is expressed as a coefficient of performance ( as illustrated ).
Calorex 31 range heat pumps are specifically designed for swimming pool heating. This means that all components used in their construction are designed to give maximum efficiency at swimming pool conditions. Furthermore, the choice of material and construction will give years of trouble free service.
