Things are Heating up this Black Friday!

Still thinking of the perfect gift to get this Black Friday and Cyber Monday? How about the gift of warmth? Something that keeps on giving the whole year round? Having problems getting the kids to jump in the pool because of how cold the water is? How about something that gives you one continuous pool season the whole year round? If you’ve answered yes to any one of those questions then you’re in the perfect place!

While staying warm and heating up your pool water may be the last thing on your mind during Australian summers, by the time winter rolls in, you'll be thinking of nothing else!

Pool Heat Pumps, Perfect For Australian Weather

In other parts of the world, heat pumps are used as season extenders only because they don’t function well in temperatures below 10 degrees celsius. Guess what? The coldest Australian winters in July only drops below that temperature at night, so unless it’s absolutely freezing outside (and you’re planning to go night swimming in the dead of winter), you’ll be able to enjoy your pool virtually the whole year round with a good heat pump!

It’s the humidity, not the heat

Remember when people are always complaining about humidity? Well, that works in our favour when talking about heat pumps as well. The more humid the air is, the more efficient our heat pump will be! If you haven’t tried swimming in a warm pool with cool temperatures above, then it’s really an experience that can’t be captured by words.

Slow and steady wins the race

One of the major drawbacks of getting a pool heat pump is its speed in heating up the pool. Heat pumps aren’t known for their speed, so if you’re looking for something that can raise the temperature of your pool in record time then you’re better off with something like a gas or electric pool heater. But if you’re the type who wants a constantly warm pool or if you have a pool that’s constantly busy then heat pumps are for you! We always say that an unused pool is a wasted pool, so with a pool heat pump, you can use the pool all-year long without worrying about massive heating bills!

Heating Costs, Visualised

These estimates are for an average sized pool and may not be exact, but it will give you a good idea what the running costs are and how the cost of a pool heat pump can be justified.

Pool Heater Type Average Cost Per Year with Pool Cover Average Cost Per Year WITHOUT Pool Cover

Gas Heater - Natural Gas

$900 - $1,000

$2,000

Gas Heater - LPG

Approx $2,000

Approx $4,000

Water TechniX Inverter Pool Heat Pump

$400 - $500

$800 - $1,000

As you can see from above, using a heat pump can cut your heating bills up to 75% and pool covers further reduce that usage by 50%. In under 5 years, you'll more than recover your initial equipment investment, plus you won't have to worry about repairing or replacing heating elements!

Buy Once, Heat Forever

If you’re not familiar with how pool heat pumps work, you can check out our comprehensive guide on how heat pumps work here. But to put it in a nutshell, they don’t actually generate heat, instead they draw heat from the air and through the use of compressors, amplify that heat and transfer it to your pool water. This just means that unlike your traditional pool heaters, there’s nothing to burn out or replace. Our range of Water TechniX Inverter Paradise pool heat pumps also have titanium heat exchangers that come with a 25-year guarantee! See, by the time that guarantee runs out or ends, we’ll probably have a different, more efficient type of pool heating solution by then (my money is on robots with lasers! Pew! Pew! Pew!), but for now, this is the best we have when it comes to efficiency.
