Air Source Heat Pumps
Sustainable heat source to reduce hot tub energy costs by up to 50%
Frequently asked questions about air source heat pumps for hot tubs
Can an air source heat pump heat a hot tub?
Yes, these innovative pumps heat the water in your hot tub or swim spa using renewable energy. Air source heat pumps are a fantastic alternative to traditional heating systems and deliver up to three times more warmth.
How does a heat pump work?
Air source heat pumps push a refrigerant through the copper heat exchanger coils. Then, the compressor and condenser work together to change the refrigerant's state from a cool liquid to a warm gas. In heating mode, the liquid refrigerant boils as it travels through the coils. Any heat carried within the refrigerant is stored until it evaporates; then, the gas is compressed, which increases its temperature. Finally, the gas moves through a pressure valve, which returns it to a liquid state while transferring the heat to the element. Find out more about how air source heat pumps work here.
How much energy will l save with an air source heat pump?
Our tests showed that for every 1kW used, you will receive 2kW of energy in an environment of 10c. This efficiency improves with increased temperatures, rising to 4kW in temperatures over 20c.
Is it cheaper to run a hot tub from a heat pump?
Air-source heat pumps are an excellent investment. With one, you can earn back your investment after 2 years of use and enjoy up to 50% annual savings. These savings are based on an average hot tub and UK energy costs when powered on permanently. Your savings may differ based on overall usage, weather, temperature, cover, insulation, changes in energy costs, and your hot tub's age and efficiency.
Will a heat pump work in 0 degree weather?
Yes, our air source heat pumps will work down to either -7C or -10C. The colder the ambient temperature and below 15°C, the longer it will take to heat up to your ideal working temperature.
Are spa heat pumps worth it?
If you want to reduce your hot tub running costs, carbon footprint and energy bills, an air source heat pump is definitely worth it.
What's the average cost of air source heat pumps?
Our air source heat pumps cost from £999. Over the next 2 years, you could make this investment back in energy savings.
