Preventing heat loss in your heated pool is an important factor in keeping your pool heat pump prices low. If heat is constantly being lost from the pool, the heater will have to work harder to maintain the desired water temperature, resulting in higher energy consumption and increased costs.
Heat loss can occur due to a variety of factors, such as air and water temperature, wind, and pool cover usage. Here are a few tips on how to prevent heat loss in your heated pool and keep lower pool heat pump prices:
- Use a pool cover: A pool cover will significantly reduce heat loss by trapping heat inside the pool and preventing evaporation. A pool that utilises a cover can expect savings of up to 70%!
- Maintain proper water temperature: Keep the water temperature at the desired level to reduce heat loss. EvoHeat pool heat pumps have the ability to do this for you, and will adjust their operation to efficiently maintain the set temperature.
- Reduce wind exposure: Wind can quickly cool down the water and air temperature around the pool. Consider installing windbreaks, such as walls or fences, or landscaping to reduce wind exposure.
By following these tips, you can continue preventing heat loss and enjoy a comfortable temperature in your heated pool all year round.
