An InverPad® pool heat pump is the best solution to pool heating in terms of both environmental protection and economic efficiency. To equip your pool with an InverPad® pool heat pump, here are four things you should take note of to choose a suitable location for your heat pump.
MAKE SUFFICIENT SPACE FOR AIR SUPPLY
A pool heat pump requires proper airflow to maintain its working efficiency, which means more airflow is better. Therefore, it is advisable to place your heat pump outdoors to ensure good ventilation. You should allow at least 500mm clearance around each side of the InverPad® pool heat pump.
CLEAR UP THE SURROUNDINGS OF THE AIR OUTLET
After extracting heat from the air, the heat pump will discharge the cold air with the fan. To keep this process running, there should be no obstructions such as hedges, fences, and plants in front of the fan.
PLACE THE HEAT PUMP CLOSE TO THE POOL PUMP
Installing your InverPad® pool heat pump near the pool pump can minimize the friction in the pipes. Long pipe runs cannot provide an adequate water flow rate. So, it requires you to upgrade your pool pump or use larger diameter pipes to reduce friction.
PLUMP THE HEAT PUMP IN THE RIGHT WAY
To plumb the heat pump, use hard pipe of proper size and elbow to keep straight runs. Otherwise, the weight of the water may cause a crack in the plumbing connection and result in leaking.
If you take these into consideration beforehand, there will be fewer problems during the pool heat pump installation. However, the guidelines or recommendations of your heat pump should always be given top priority. Only in this way can you get your heat pump to work properly and reduce the need for pool heat pump repairs.
