How A Heat Pump Works

A heat pump works differently from other pool heaters. Heat is taken from the outside air and transferred to the pool water. This means your heat pump WILL NOT burn energy to create heat. It merely collects solar energy and transfers it to the water. 

The process looks like this: 

  • A cool liquid refrigerant is passed through the evaporator coil in your AquaCal Heat Pump
  • As this happens, the air is drawn in through the evaporator coil using a fan
  • The heat from the ambient air warms up the liquid refrigerant inside the evaporator coil so it evaporates
  • We now have warm vapor refrigerant that is passed through a compressor and turned into hot vapor refrigerant
  • Pool water passes through the patented ThermoLink titanium heat exchanger system, which takes the heat from the hot refrigerant and transfers it to the pool water
  • Pool water leaves the heat pump and disperses in the pool to heat it up
  • After heating the pool water, the hot refrigerant turns back into cool liquid refrigerant and the process repeats

This goes on and on, gradually heating up the entirety of your pool.

AquaCal ThermoLink Heat Exchanger

The secret to the AqualCal heat pump’s performance lies in our unique ThermoLink technology. This is a patented titanium heat exchanger in our T90, T115, T135 and all HeatWave SuperQuiet models that prevents premature failure extending the life your heat pump investment and saving you money.

Don’t fall into the trap of buying heat pumps with low initial costs - look for the “Titanium Inside” decal found only in AquaCal heat pumps.

AquaCal TropiCal T135 Heat Pump (Heat Only) FAQs

An electric heat pump is far more eco-friendly and efficient when compared to a gas heater. It produces minimal amounts of energy to transfer free heat from the air to your pool water. This drastically lowers your carbon footprint and saves you thousands of dollars in operating cost. Electric heat pumps also tend to have fewer working parts, meaning there’s a lower chance of things breaking or needing to be repaired. 

An electric heat pump only costs more when initially purchasing the unit. This is because they use innovative technology that sets them apart from gas heaters. When you take the total cost of ownership into account, an electric heat pump from AquaCal is far cheaper than a traditional gas heater. 

Don’t be fooled by cheaper units! Thanks to our patented ThermoLink technology, you can run our electric heat pumps for as little as $14.70 per month. In comparison, gas heat pumps could cost $100s a month!
