Choosing the right heat pump for your pool is not easy. The energy consumption raises often many questions:
How to choose? Are there solutions that consume less energy than others?
Inverter technology’s goal is to increase the energy performance of appliances and reduce the electricity bill.
Polytropic reveals all the advantages of an full-Inverter pool heat pump compared to a traditional heat pump (on/off)!
What is inverter technology?
Inverter technology means that a heat pump can adjust its energy consumption to the actual needs of the pool. The components (compressor and fans) adapt their operating intensity to deliver only the power needed to heat the water. As a result, the heat pump will consume less electricity. An inverter compressor with efficient heat exchangers will give the heat pump a higher COP. This COP (Coefficient of Performance) defines the efficiency of the heat pump. A high COP means that the heat pump is optimised and efficient.
How does a full-inverter pool heat pump work?
Full-Inverter pool heat pumps operate smartly: once the temperature has been set, the heat pump will automatically the output adjust to reach that temperature. This is due to an algorithm that can process pool temperature data to determine the level of intensity at which the pump should operate.
Why choose Inverter technology for your pool heating?
1. Reduction in energy consumption
Without doubt the first argument for opting for such technology: the significant reduction in energy consumption. Over a year, the saving is between 30 and 40% compared to a conventional heat pump. The higher the COP, the lower your electricity bill.
2. Operation that adapts to your use
Thanks to its intelligent operation, the heat pump takes into account the temperature of the water and the ambient air to regulate itself. It therefore operates automatically and adjusts to your needs.
At the beginning of the season, the temperature rises quickly.
At the height of the season, it will adjust and run at low speed to maintain the water at the right temperature.
3. Low noise levels
Due to its low speed operation, the noise level of the heat pump is considerably low. The choice of fans (e.g. variable speed brushless technology) also contributes to this noise reduction. This is a significant advantage in small spaces where the heat pump is placed close to the pool, or where it does not disturb the neighbourhood.
4. Low impact R32 refrigerant
Pool heat pumps with full inverter technology use R32 refrigerant. In addition to inverter technology, the use of R32 refrigerant, which is more efficient and environmentally friendly than the traditionally used R410A, results in a lower impact.
5. Connectivity and remote control
Generally, full inverter models allow the integration of wifi for remote control and programming via your smartphone or tablet of your pool heat pump.
The benefits of a full Inverter heat pump compared to a traditional heat pump
The main difference between a full-Inverter heat pump and a conventional heat pump is the start-up of the heat pump:
A conventional heat pump (on/off) starts up using all its power, and may cause some noise pollution. It switches off once the set temperature has been reached. It will restart as soon as it is necessary to correct a temperature difference (even for 1°C). It should be noted that frequent start/stop operation consumes a lot of energy and tires out the components.
A full inverter pool heat pump, on the other hand, starts up gradually and does not cause a peak in consumption. When the set water temperature is almost reached, it activates its idle mode without switching off. It then simply adjusts its operating intensity to keep the water at the desired temperature.
A full-inverter pool heat pump is, of course, a little more expensive at the outset, but it offers good guarantees in the long term. In particular, its life span is extended. Because the full inverter heat pump does not generate peak loads, the components do not run at full speed. As a result, parts wear out more slowly and the heat pump has a longer service life.
