How It Works

Electroheat uses refrigeration technology to extract heat from the surrounding air and transfers it to the swimming pool.

Step 1: Heat extraction The fan circulates air through the evaporator air coil that acts as a heat collector. The liquid refrigerant in the evaporator air coil absorbs the available heat from the ambient air.

Step 2: Heat Intensification The compressor receives the warmed refrigerant and intensifies the heat. The intensely hot refrigerant is then pumped into the heat exchanger.

Step 3: Heat Transfer Heat from the hot refrigerant flowing inside the heat exchanger is then transferred to the pool water.

Step 4: Recycle The refrigerant restarts the process and flows through the evaporator air coil to collect heat once again.

Heat pumps only require energy to operate a compressor and a fan motor, using low amperage in the process.

The Electroheat produces over four times more heat energy than the electrical power it consumes. For every 1kW of electricity consumed, Electroheat can produce over 4 kW of heat. This provides savings up to 80% over propane gas, 50% over natural gas, and 500% over electric heaters.
