Gas Pool Heating Solutions With Integrated Heat Pump
Heating your pool doesn’t have to be a chore, thanks to integrated heat pump technology. This involves combining heat pump technology with gas boosters so that you can do domestic hot water heating. Let’s dive into more vital details about heat pump technology and gas boosters.
Why Choose Heat Pump?
Heat pumps are gaining popularity because of their low environment impact and relatively high-energy efficiency. Heat pump water heaters can work in places that aren’t good for solar water heaters. These places get less sun like the south side of hills.
How Do Heat Pumps Work?
Heat pumps use the ambient air surrounding the unit to heat your pool. The air passes over an evaporator coil using heated refrigerant to heat water returning back into your pool. This process does not require natural gas and lowers the running costs drastically.
Why Choose Gas Pool Heaters?
For decades, swimming pools have utilized Gas-fired pool heaters to create an ambient swimming temperature in the water. And even today, gas remains one of the most popular systems for heating swimming pools.
With the huge shift in people’s awareness of environmental impact and the importance of operating energy efficient equipment, the newest gas-fired heater models have much higher efficiencies than older models.
How Do Gas Pool Heaters Work?
Gas Pool Heaters work like a larger version of a domestic water heater. Your pool water can be heated to your required temperature 365 days of the year. Gas heaters are fast, so you can heat your pool during weekends, holidays, and special occasions. Plus, you can leave it turned off when you don’t need it.
Gas pool heaters use either natural gas or LPG. As the pump circulates the pool’s water, the water drawn from the pool passes through a filter and then to the heater. The gas burns in the heater’s combustion chamber, generating heat that transfers to the water that’s returned to the pool.
If you do not use your pool all that often but still want the convenience of a heated pool then gas heating is your answer. They’re most efficient when heating pools for short periods of time, and they’re ideal for quickly heating pools. Gas pool heaters can maintain any desired temperature regardless of the weather or climate.
Why Combine Heat Pumps and Gas?
Installing a dual fuel heat pump enables you to benefit from the energy savings of using a heat pump while efficiently heating your home during bitter-cold temperatures.
What Is a Dual Fuel Heat Pump?
A dual fuel heat pump is a standard electric heat pump with a gas-powered furnace as its backup heater. You can use only the heat pump during mild winter days. When the temperature outside is too low for your heat pump to work, the system automatically activates and switches up the backup furnace. The switch is done automatically so you won’t even notice any difference whether your home is using the heat pump or the furnace.
Things to remember when installing a dual fuel heat pump:
1. Regular System Tune-Up
You must remember to have a regular system tune-up at the beginning of every heating season. Although you may have already had a tune-up on your heat pump during the spring season, you should schedule one during the fall and other seasons. This allows you to deal with issues that might develop during the cooling season. You also need to have your backup furnace inspected and tuned up right before you use it.
2. Thermostat for Dual Fuel Heat Pumps Come With an Emergency Heat Setting
The second thing you should know about dual fuel heat pumps is that their thermostats usually come with an “emergency heat” setting. Only your backup furnace will be used to heat your home when this setting is turned on. You should use this setting only when your heat pump is frozen or acting up and you want to turn it off. You can use your gas furnace while waiting for the technician to arrive. Never use this setting just because it’s freezing cold outside, otherwise, your heat pump will switch to your backup furnace automatically.
Integrated Heat Pump for Your Pool
There are many benefits to using heat pumps and the same is true with gas heaters. Combine the two and you’ve got the amazing system of dual fuel heat pumps. Now you can enjoy pool heating using integrated heat pumps.
Gone are the days when you had to settle for one or the other. Why worry when you can have both. Using heat pumps and gas heaters combined will increase the efficiency of your pool heating solution and provide peace of mind for you and your loved ones.
