Swimming Pool Heat Source Pumps

Pool owners often explain that they dream of being able to use their pool all year round but that the UK climate does not allow for that. Here at Minerva Pools, we work to install swimming pool heat source pumps to make that dream come true.

Pool Heat Source Pumps

An environmentally-friendly solution

Heat source pumps are not used wisely across the UK, but they are an environmentally-friendly solution that will make swimming in the coldest weather an absolute joy. Heat source pumps are widely used in countries with the harshest climates, such as Scandinavia, and are becoming a more popular choice for pool owners here in Britain.

How Do Pool Heat Source Pumps Work?

How Do Pool Heat Source Pumps Work?

Pool heat source pumps work when connected to electricity and water sources. In essence, they work very much like a fridge but in the opposite way, pumping heat into your pool rather than cooling your pool.

It takes air and converts it into heating for your pool, even during the winter months! This means that you can use your pool all year round up in temperatures as low as -25 degrees. The best bit is that the heat source pumps that Minerva Pools use are designed specifically for the UK weather, so there will be no unexpected issues after installation.

Heat source pumps are installed outside and make virtually no noise, meaning that your pool will be warm without you needing to put up with loud noises from the pump. It is also eco-friendly in that it can take one unit of electricity and convert it into three units of heat energy, keeping your pool heating bills low!

Benefits Of Heat Source Pumps

There are many benefits to having a heat source pump installed for your pool, and so we have outlined the four main areas that you will benefit from below.

Lower Heating Bills

The benefit that appeals to most pool owners is that a heat source pump will keep your energy bills low. This is because it produces more units or heat that it uses units of electricity. Therefore if you use electricity to power your pump, you can save over £1100 every year on your heating bill.

Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme

The UK Government introduced the Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (RHI) whereby they pay UK residents that use renewable technology. The great news is that heat source pumps are part of this scheme, and you are able to benefit from it if you have one installed.

Eco-Friendly Technology

Hat source pumps are not just cheaper to run, but they use eco-friendly technology to provide year-round heating for your swimming pool. They last for around 20 years when they are well maintained and offer a reduced environmental impact, cutting CO2 emissions by up to 50%. This means that not only can you enjoy a warm pool all year round but you are doing so in a way that supports the environment.

You will also be pleased to know that heat source pumps are a breeze to install, and Minerva Pools is well experienced in completing this work. We will install it in the optimum location and talk you through the process before we begin work. It takes very little time to set up, and you will soon be in your pool, enjoying your newfound warmth!

How To Know What Size You Need

When it comes to finding the right size heat source pump, we are here for you. We can visit your property and suggest the right size when we quote you for the work that needs to be done. We will arrange to come to your property at a time that suits you so that you do not need to rework your plans.

However, to be able to give you some idea of the size over the phone prior to our visit, we will need to know the following information:

  • The volume of your pool.
  • The size of the surface area.
  • The temperature you want to operate your pool at.
  • When you are planning to use your pool and how often.

We can then help you to work out the Kilowatt rating you need and provide you with estimates pending a site visit.
