  • Extend the swimming season

    A swimming pool is a major financial investment. Getting the most out of your pool, means keeping the pool at a swimmable temperature for the maximum number of hours in each day and the maximum number of days in each year. A pool heat pump will economically keep your pool warm 24 hours a day. Compared to gas and electric heaters, the Electroheat ECO V pool heat pump range use just a fraction of the energy to generate the same amount of heat and unlike solar heating; there is no reliance on the sun as the latent heat in the air is used. For every 1kW of electricity consumed, Electroheat can produce up to 8kW of heat. Electroheat ECO-V Inverter technology heat pumps can heat your pool in colder climates even when the ambient air temperature is close to 0°C.

  • Energy Efficient Inverter Technology

    • Inverter technology uses a variable speed compressor motor similar to a cars engine
    • It slows down and speeds up as needed to hold a selected desired temperature or speed
    • The desired temperature will be reached more quickly and maintained more efficiently
    • Inverter technology provides a more precise water temperature without the fluctuations and power wastage of fixed speed systems
    • Inverter technology is significantly more energy efficient with energy savings between 15 - 30% over fixed speed systems
    • The speed control of the compressor and fan motor also means quieter operation.

The Electroheat ECO-V inverter top vent range of pool heat pumps allow the pool owner to heat their pool in cooler climates even when the ambient air temperature is close to 0°c. The ECO-V range are ideal solution to heating swimming pools, plunge pools, swim spas and spas to extend the swim season or for year-round enjoyment. They are available in 12,21,24,27,39 in single phase models and, 38 & 48kW capacities in three phase models rated at 27c air with heating and cooling.

Key features of the Electroheat ECO-V 12,21,24,27,38,39 & 48kW Inverter pool heat pumps:

  • Inverter technology improves energy efficiency
  • Top venting design allows for greater installation options
  • Digital controller with diagnostics
  • Heating and cooling operating modes to select from
  • Supplied drainage spigots allow piping to drain away the condensate
  • Refrigerant pressure gauge indicates the level of refrigerant charge held within the unit
  • Hydrophilic blue fin coated evaporator protects unit from erosion in humid and coastal environments
  • Automatic hot gas evaporator de-icing removes ice build up
  • R32 refrigerant for zero ozone depletion (21- 48kW models)
  • R410A refrigerant (12kW model)


  •   Can the Electroheat be enclosed?

    The Electroheat is designed for outdoor installation and should not be installed in totally enclosed areas such as a shed, garage, etc., unless mechanical ventilation is provided to ensure adequate air exchange for proper operation. Re-circulation of cold discharged air back into the evaporator coil will greatly reduce unit’s heating capacity and efficiency.

  •   How does Electroheat compare with solar heating and gas heating?


    • Fuelled by the power of the sun, solar heating systems are a low-cost method of heating up your pool water.

    • As solar heating is reliant on the sun, they are best used to extend the swimming season.

    • Virtually no operating costs, just the cost of electricity to pump the pool water through the solar absorber on the roof.


    Gas heaters

    • Gas heaters are the fastest method for heating your pool, providing a comfortable temperature for swimming on demand. Gas is best for heating pools or spas for short periods of time.

    • Gas heaters can easily maintain any desired temperature regardless of the weather.

    • Gas heaters are effective, but expensive to operate.


    Heat pumps

    • Heat pumps may not heat up the swimming pool as fast as gas heaters, but are more energy efficient.

    • Heat pumps require a small amount of electricity; its heat energy source is extracted from the ambient ai

  •   Should I use a pool cover?

    The most effective way to prevent heat loss is to install a pool cover. An un-blanketed pool loses 2-3 times more heat than a blanketed pool. Pool covers virtually eliminate evaporation and reduce heat loss by insulating the surface of the pool, greatly reducing pool heating costs. As with all pool heaters, it would be advisable to use a pool cover at night, and when the pool is not in use.

  •   What is the best location for the electroheat?

    The location of the Electroheat is very important in keeping installation costs to a minimum, while providing for maximum efficiency of operation as well as allowing adequate service and maintenance access.

    The unit should be located as close as practically possible to the existing pool pump and filter to minimise water piping. The use of 90 degree bends and short radius elbows in the water piping should be kept to a minimum. The longer the distance from the pool, the higher the heat loss from the piping.

  •   What is the Electroheat's heater running time?

    Most units should be sized to operate during the pool filtering cycle time of 8 - 12 hours daily (Winter - 8hrs, Summer - up to 12hrs), providing a steady flow of heated water. On warmer days the heater will run less because the heat loss will be less.

    Electroheat heat pumps have a lower heating capacity on a BTU/hr basis compared to fossil fuel based pool heaters such as gas heaters. Therefore, Electroheat heat pumps require longer operation to accomplish the desired temperature.

    If your heat pump is sized and installed correctly, between 10°C to 18°C, it will increase your water temperature by 3°C to 5.5°C a day. Over 21°C you should obtain an increase up to 0.8°C a hour and over 26°C up to 1.1°C an hour depending on the size of the pool, the size of the heat pump, the water temperature, and the ambient air temperature at the moment of operation. Even though the Electroheat may require longer operation, it will still heat the pool far more economically.

  •   What is the Electroheat's performance dependent on?

    Performance will fluctuate depending on water and weather temperatures. 5 important factors determine the performance of Electroheat:

    1. Size of the pool

    2. The desired temperature of the pool

    3. Ambient air temperature - the warmer the air, the better the performance

    4. The presence of a pool cover

    5. The size of the heater

  •   What is the minimum ambient operating temperature?

    The heat pump will actually operate down to an ambient air temperature of 10°, but with minimal heat output. Therefore we recommend that the minimum operating temperature should be 10°.
