Hot Tubs With Air Source Heat Pumps
Order a new hot tub with an air source heat pump for up to 70% lower running costs, or have a heat pump fitted to your existing hot tub.
How does an air source heat pump work with a hot tub?
An air source heat pump is a device that uses electricity to transfer heat from the air to a pool or hot tub, using a refrigerant as a medium. The heat pump consists of an outdoor unit and an indoor unit, both of which contain a refrigerant.
To heat the water in a hot tub, the heat pump works like this:
The outdoor unit draws in air and passes it over a set of coils containing the refrigerant.
As the air passes over the coils, it heats up the refrigerant, which absorbs the heat from the air.
The heated refrigerant is then pumped to the indoor unit, where it passes through a set of coils containing the water for the hot tub.
As the refrigerant passes through the coils, it transfers its heat to the water, heating it up.
The refrigerant then returns to the outdoor unit, where the process starts again.
Air source heat pumps are a more energy-efficient way to heat a hot tub or pool, as they use the heat from the air to heat the water, rather than generating heat directly. They can be a more environmentally friendly and cost-effective alternative to traditional gas or electric heaters.
What are the benefits of getting a hot tub with an air source heat pump?
There are several benefits to using an air source heat pump with a hot tub:
Energy efficiency: Air source heat pumps are more energy-efficient than traditional gas or electric heaters, as they use the heat from the air to heat the water, rather than generating heat directly. This can help reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
Cost-effective: Air source heat pumps can be more cost-effective to operate than traditional heaters, as they use less energy and may have lower upfront costs.
Quiet operation: Air source heat pumps are typically quieter than traditional heaters, as they do not have moving parts that produce noise.
Easy to install: Air source heat pumps are relatively easy to install, as they do not require a gas line or other specialized equipment.
Versatility: Air source heat pumps can be used to heat a variety of different types of pools and hot tubs, and they can be used in a range of climates.
Overall, air source heat pumps can be a more environmentally friendly and cost-effective way to heat a hot tub or pool, and they offer a number of other benefits as well.
