Recommended Pool Heat Pumps models

Our chosen swimming pool heat pumps are designed and manufactured in Britain. The Calorex swimming pool heat pumps have been designed specifically to heat swimming pools, both public and private and provide maximum efficiency and reliability.

Calorex offer two types of swimming pool heat pump for the private swimming pool, the X and Y models.


Pro-Pac X

The most popular range, the Pro-Pac X can be used to heat semi-enclosed or outdoor swimming pools and has been designed to extend the period of use, to allow an outdoor pool to be enjoyed all year round. Particularly efficient in the summer months, the Pro-Pac X can heat the swimming pool water up to 35°C. The swimming pool heat pump is a compact single unit that can be used in air temperatures above 5°C.

Pro-Pac Y

The Pro-Pac Y swimming pool heat pump is ideally suited to heating indoor or outdoor swimming pools all year round but works particularly well when ambient temperatures are lower, between March to November. Due to the reverse cycle defrost, the Pro-Pac Y functions efficiently even at atmospheric temperatures of -15°C.

A swimming pool thermal cover is always advised and can lessen the time required to heat the swimming pool water to your desired temperature.


Pro-Pac Commercial

For larger swimming pools the Calorex Pro-Pac Commercial swimming pool heat pump is recommended. Designed to heat indoor swimming pools all year round or outdoor pools during the summer months, the Pro-Pac commercial uses purpose designed components to provide efficient water heating.

The heat pump is protected by an epoxy coating which means it can withstand all weather conditions. The Pro-Pac Commercial has a capacity of 32-125kW making it perfect for a larger pool size.  Furthermore, this heat pump can provide 50% carbon savings compared to a fossil fuel boiler and would provide an easy way to increase the green credentials of any business.

The Basics

Swimming pool heat pumps can be installed by Enviko. We are one of the UK’s leading renewable energy companies and can install these for your swimming pool. Read more on how they work.

Heat from the air outside
The air outside is around 11-13°C and is heated by the sun to a constant temperature and so this is easily harnessed. These pumps absorb heat from the air outside using a refrigeration gas and this air the then circulated by use of a fan.

The heated gas is then compressed to strengthen the heat. The heated gas is then sent to a heat exchanger where it heats the swimming pool water. The refrigeration gas therefore cools and is sent back to be heated by the outside air again. basics of heat pumps used with pools in the UK

More energy efficient
This system is therefore energy efficient and works by simply taking heat from the surroundings and using it to heat water and so is perfect for swimming pools. At Enviko we can install a range of heat pumps and choose the best one for you. We have extensive experience and a large portfolio of many types of renewable energy installations.

Offering cheaper heating for pools
These are a cheap way of heating your house too, where the heat exchange contains air instead of swimming pool water and can if installed under the house provide under floor heating. This is easier in new builds but a heat pump can easily be installed in existing properties too. The exchange can also be switched to cool your house during the summer when it gets hot.

Installed and fitted Nationwide
We can also install ground source heat pumps to heat your home, these produce more heat than the swimming pool heat pumps although they cost more they can be a very effective way of providing heat.

They would provide enough to heat up hot water for central heating and can save you up to 50% on your bills by preheating.

These consist of pipe loops that go into the ground, the earth maintains a warm temperature due to heat from the sun and the centre and so water pumped down into the ground gains thermal energy.

 

 

Solar Panels

Solar panels supplied and installed by Enviko LtdThe standard solar panel is a photovoltaic panel that consists of several solar cells capable of collecting thermal energy released by the sun. These solar panels are connected together to create a larger system that is capable of converting significant amounts of solar energy to electrical energy. Due to factors such as rain, dust and seasonal changes a large amount of solar panels are used in a simple installation. This ensures that the required amount of light is captured and stored for later use when no thermal energy is available. There are several different types of thermal energy storage as well.
