Heat Pumps for water heating at your UK Swimming Pool

The best Type of Outdoor Pool Heating

In the pool design section of this web-site we explain why we are of the opinion that heat-pumps using air as the heat source are the cheapest and most reliable way to heat the water in an outdoor swimming pool in the UK.

Heat Pump Installation and Running Costs

A top quality heat pump will cost somewhere in the 4 to 8,000 euros range depending on pool size and you should recoup the capital cost in terms of reduced energy bills compared with gas, oil or electric heating after 2 - 3 years.

So in our opinion if you are going to heat your pool - install a heat pump using air as the heat sink. If you cannot afford it you cannot really afford to heat your pool so it is probably best left until you can afford one.

The cheaper heat pumps are getting increasingly reliable and it may be possible to install a single heat pump that will heat the pool and provide underfloor heating in your property.
