With the new advances in pool heating technology, it has never been easier to keep your pool to the temperature you want. Pool heat pumps from Madimack, Australia’s most trusted brand in pool heating, can make sure that your pool stays warm season after season, no matter where you may live.
Heat Pumps vs Gas or Electric Heaters
Unlike traditional gas or electric heaters, pool heat pumps from Madimack do not actually generate heat. Instead, they draw in the heat from the air which heats up a refrigerant inside the unit, compressing it and heating the water within the tank before pushing it out into the pool. While it may sound a little bit complicated, it’s actually quite simple and quick. The best way to think about pool heat pumps is that it’s a “reverse refrigerator” it works on the exact same principle (and parts) of a home refrigerator but in reverse.
Cost Comparison: The Numbers
While actual numbers will differ depending on the size of your pool and the weather, dollar-for-dollar, a pool heat pump from Madimack will save you up to 90% on your pool heating bill. For an average-sized pool in Australia, extending the season can run you up to $500 in additional electrical bills for a month using a traditional electric pool heater. With a heat pump, extending the season can cost you only about $50 a month! With the savings, the heat pump will pay for itself in a couple of years.
Longevity: Heat Pumps Vs Traditional Pool Heaters
As we’ve mentioned before, heat pumps do not produce any heat, so there are no components to “burn out”. A well-maintained heat pump will still be there, efficiently heating your pool long after your traditional gas or electric pool heater has burned out and requires repair or replacement.

Give your heater a hand with some pool covers
After heating your pool, it would be a shame to have all of that heat go back into the atmosphere. By getting a solar blanket or a good pool cover, you can further increase your energy savings by preserving up to 8 degrees celsius of heat in your pool!
Tip: When it comes to heat pumps, bigger is actually better! It will heat up your pool much faster while same amount (or sometimes even less!) of energy as smaller units would.
