Heat pumps are air-to-air heat pumps that use natural air to heat the pool water. These pumps are now rapidly replacing traditional gas and fuel pumps because of their incredible performance and other benefits.
As the pool water temperature is always an issue in summer and winter, these pumps are designed as a permanent solution for every season. The key advantage of these pumps is that they can provide hot and chilled water simultaneously or when required.
What Are Pool Heat Pumps?
A pool heat pump usually consists of a compressor and fan to trap the natural air. As the natural air is hot because of the sun, the compressor turns the air into heat energy to maintain the water temperature.
The working mechanism of these pumps is very simple yet effective and automatic. Usually, the pumps, like the inverter pool heat pump, automatically set the water temperature according to environmental temperature. So, if you have cold weather, the water will be hot and vice versa.
However, this explanation might not be enough for many buyers looking for solid reasons to choose these pumps. So, below are some key benefits of these pumps that make them worth buying!

To reduce the energy bills, the heat pumps are designed with innovative technology to increase the Coefficient of Performance (COP) by about 6-8. The Aquark’s Mr. Perfect heat pumps come with the highest COPs that reduce energy consumption by up to 50%, even in traditional pumps.
Besides energy costs, these pumps' installation and maintenance costs are also meager because of their simple structure.
· Easy Maintenance
Regarding maintenance, pool heat pumps are straightforward to operate and maintain. They require little or no maintenance once installed in your pool.

Heat pumps are better for the environment than gas or electric resistance heaters, giant toaster ovens that sit outside. It is because; there is no combustion and exchange of gases in these pumps. The pumps only use the natural air to produce heat that maintains the water temperature.
· Noise Free
Usually, the pumps come with the idea of noise production while working. However, the heat pumps are much quieter than gas and electric resistance heaters. So, you can easily enjoy your swimming time.
