Have you dreamed of installing a heat pump to extend your swimming season?

With the end of summer in sight, are you already dreading the moment when you will no longer be able to dip even a toe into your pool?

In fact, a heat pump, for a pool, has the advantage of transforming the heat present in the air and reusing it to heat the water in the pool. Water at 28 °C in October, does that tempt you?

Outside temperatures, size of the pool, efficiency of the pump … Read all our advice on how to choose the heat pump that is best suited to your needs!

Selection criteria for a heat pump for your pool:

• Noise

Some heat pumps are noisy: if you have to place your heat pump close to the pool basin, go for a silent model. The EnergyLine Pro Fi Inverter pumps have a super-silent compressor and a DC Inverter fan. In regulation mode, these pumps make no more sound than a puff of air:  only 20 dB!

• Active defrosting

Depending on which region you live in, the active defrost function will be your best friend and will allow optimal operation at low temperatures. 

• Connected heat pump

Very simple to use thanks to the SmartTemp module developed by Hayward: this is connected to the EnergyLine Pro Fi pump, so you can start up the heat pump remotely and control the temperature from your smartphone. Practical for when you come back from a weekend away and you want to go for a swim 

• Inverter technology

The new Inverter technology adjusts the energy consumption of heat pumps thanks to a rapid rise in temperature and maintenance at a setpoint temperature using reduced power. This regulation as a function of outdoor conditions results in savings of up to 30 %.
