Heatinverter swimming pool heat pumps
A pool water heat pump operates by extracting heat from the outside air and transfers it to the pool water using extremely reliable and very energy efficient technology. A heat pump will easily heat any pool to the desired swimming temperature and maintain this throughout the swimming season, as long as the correct size and type of heat pump is professionally selected.
With our new and improved Inverter technology, the heat pump very cleverly has the ability to continuously regulate its own thermal power flow (which can add 15% – 20% efficiency when compared to conventional technology.)
A traditional heat pump either works at maximum capability or is switched off as the compressor's speed cannot be varied. In order to regulate temperature a thermostat is used to measure the ambient air temperature and switch the compressor on when the water temperature is too far from the required temperature.
The Heatinverter uses a rectifier to convert the incoming AC current to DC and then uses pulse-width modulation of the DC current within an inverter (electrical) to produce AC current of a desired frequency. As the speed of a brushless motor is synchronised to the frequency of the AC current it is thus possible for the Heatinverter compressor to be run at different speeds. A microcontroller then samples the ambient air temperature and adjusts the speed of the compressor appropriately.
The effect of eliminating stop-start cycles is to increase efficiency, extend the life of components, and eliminate sharp fluctuations in the load the heat pump places on the power supply. This reduces the demand on the compressor which in turn reduces the running cost and improves efficiency.
The ‘Heatinverter’ range from Fairlocks operate down to an ambient air temperature of 0°C, with sizes from 12 - 30kw
Reduce your carbon footprint with environmentally friendly swimming pool heating!
Of course in this day and age it's important that everyone consider their carbon footprint. The problem is that sometimes in doing this there is a possibility that you make a compromise on what you are trying to achieve.
Choosing to use a Heatinverter heat pump to heat your pool or spa will not compromise the temperature at which you are trying to maintain your pool or spa. Like any heater, as long as the correct size is selected, the required water temperature will be maintained throughout your swimming season.
Using a Heatinverter heat pump can be up to 6 times more energy efficient than other conventional types of heaters, which use either electricity, gas or oil for their fuel.
