How a Heat Pump Works

During heat pump operation, liquid Freon from inside the unit is pumped through the system (A) and is turned into a heated gas. This happens when heat is taken from the surrounding air (B) as it is drawn through the evaporator by the fan. The compressor (C) receives this warmer gas and it compresses it to a higher pressure, resulting in the Freon reaching even higher temperatures. As the unit sends the heated gas through the heat exchanger, the gas gives up its heat to the surrounding water (D). The Freon is then reverted to its liquid state which completes the cycle (A). The water (F), which is being forced through the heat exchanger (D) by your pool pump, is heated by three to five degrees as it passes through the heat exchanger. The water, now warmer, then flows back into your pool (G).

Installation

Heat Pump Installation Location:

The location of the heat pump is very important for efficient operation. In order of importance the installer must consider the following conditions:

  • Heat pump will perform more efficiently when placed in direct sunlight
  • Ample air intake
  • Avoidance of air recirculation
  • Accessibility of service panels
  • Means of draining condenser in freezing weather (such as union-style fittings)
  • Means of draining condenser and rainwater – insulation of long water lines (over 25ft.) from heater to pool

Additional Installation Information:

Clearance Around the Unit- There must be a minimum of 2ft from walls, shrubbery, equipment etc.

Clearance Above the Unit- Minimum 6ft

  • This unit must be hardwired by a licensed electrician
  • Consult the Owner’s Manual and Installation Guide for specific installation information

**Installation of this unit in a fully enclosed area (ie garage, shed) is NOT recommended!
