Pool Heating – extend your swimming season into winter.

The summer days begin to end, the days get cooler and shorter –  however, this does not mean that the days in the garden, inside the pool, must end in the month of March in Australia. Discover how to raise the temperature of your pool in an economical and environmentally friendly way and extend your swimming season all year long.

The Inverter heat pumps achieve a pleasant water temperature and are essential to heat the pool in the new bathing season. With a balanced consumption and a sustainable energy expenditure, this technology allows you to enjoy the bath even when the outside temperature is getting colder.

The pool heating with inverter technology is an effective and economical way to heat water allowing save up to 30% compared with conventional heat pumps. Inverter heat pumps are silent, ecological and low consumption devices. Inverter pumps can be used during all seasons. Although they become perfect options to heat the water of the pool in winter (because they work with outside temperatures of up to -10 degrees and have been specially designed to work in this environment) they can also be regulated to cool the water during the summer.

Inverter models are able to be controlled remotely through the HeatPumpGo App giving you wireless control of your pool. Monitor and set your pool’s temperature even if you’re away on a business trip or holiday through your home’s Wi-Fi, with the optional WiFi module (sold separately). With the HeatPumpGO app (available for Android and iOS devices), your pool temperature will always be right at your fingertips wherever you are!

Efficient and sustainable technology

Inverter pumps are adjustable and allow three modes of operation: Powerful, Smart & Quiet. In particular, this last function is the most discreet to enjoy the pool in the silence of the night; is able to work between 40 dB and 42 dB, the sound level of a library.

AstralPool Heat Pumps are an environmentally friendly option to heat your pool. Operating on a similar principle to your refrigerator or air conditioner, Heat Pumps use environmentally friendly refrigerant gas that extracts the latent heat from the air and transfers this heat into the pool water. A nearly silent compressor moves the refrigerant gas through a coil (called evaporator) through which air is forced and collects heat from the surrounding atmosphere. The now superheated refrigerant gas then passes through a titanium heat exchanger (called a condenser) which transfers the heat into the pool water and the cycle starts again.

So in fact, the power used by the heat pump does not create any heat, it is simply used to compress and move the refrigerant gas through the evaporator and condenser to collect and transfer heat from the atmosphere into your pool water. For every 1 kW of electricity consumed, AstralPool Heat Pumps will collect up to 13 kW of heat from the atmosphere. Sunshine is not necessary and your Heat Pump will continue to heat your pool in air temperatures as low as 7 degrees. So even if the nights are cold, or the days leading up to the weekend are cool, your AstralPool Heat Pump can heat and maintain your pool water temperature at a comfortable swimming temperature.

To assist with deciding with the heating pump that would best suit your needs, on the AstralPool website you will be able to access the heat pump calculator that will allow you to find the solution that best suits the specific size of the pool and desired temperature of the pool. The search engine offers a selection of heat pumps or electric heaters that will achieve the best efficiency based on this data.
