The AstralPool range of Heat Pumps now includes both standard technology and the new Inverter technology. Inverter technology allows the swimming pool heat pump to reach an extremely high COP compared with normal heat pumps in the market. The unique inverter technology reduces the speed of the unit as it reaches the desired temperature. This greatly saves on energy and enables you to enjoy swimming quicker and at a constant temperature.The Viron Inverter Heat Pump range uses R32 Gas Refrigerant, which offers higher efficiency and longer pipe runs and requires less refrigerant volume per Kw. This means quicker heating times and less energy used to heat up your pool. Reduced electricity consumption by 10% and lower environmental impact.
HOW INVERTER TECHNOLOGY MAXIMISES THE BENEFITS OF HEAT PUMPS
AstralPool’s range of Inverter technology heat pumps uses up to 15-30% less power consumption when compared to a non-inverter heat pump
The Inverter technology also reduces the noise due to a unique internal ventilation design,
the addition of silent mode allows you to operate at anytime without disturbing the neighbours.
The Viron range and Top Discharge heat pumps come included with WiFi. Also available as an optional add on for all other models.
AstralPool Heat Pumps are an environmentally friendly option to heat your pool. Operating on a similar principle to your refrigerator or air conditioner, Heat Pumps use environmentally friendly refrigerant gas that extracts the latent heat from the air and transfers this heat into the pool water.
BUILT FOR AUSTRALIAN ENVIRONMENTS
Unlike many other heat pumps, the corrosion proof titanium heat exchanger is enclosed in a purpose designed and fully injection moulded housing for maximum strength and long life. The fully moulded plastic Heat Pump case is impervious to corrosion and guarantees maximum life regardless of location, “seaside” tropical north or outback.
For every 1 kW of electricity consumed, AstralPool Heat Pumps will collect up to 13 kW of heat from the atmosphere. Sunshine is not necessary and your Heat Pump will continue to heat your pool in air temperatures as low as 7 degrees. So even if the nights are cold, or the days leading up to the weekend are cool, your AstralPool Heat Pump can heat and maintain your pool water temperature at a comfortable swimming temperature.
A nearly silent compressor moves the refrigerant gas through a coil (called evaporator) through which air is forced and collects heat from the surrounding atmosphere. The now superheated refrigerant gas then passes through a titanium heat exchanger (called a condenser) which transfers the heat into the pool water and the cycle starts again.
AstralPool has a wide selection of heat pumps to suit virtually any size swimming pool, from small residential pools to large public pools. When choosing your heat pump, AstralPool recommend you assess your lifestyle and determine when you want to use your pool.
If you wish to swim during the summer and shoulder season only, a small heat pump can be installed, saving on up front costs and ongoing operating costs. However, for all year round swimming, we have the right heat pump too, to ensure you can use your pool at any time of the year.
