Frequently Asked Questions

How long do pool heat pumps last?

A pool heat pump is an outstanding investment. It can last 10-20 years with proper maintenance and pool heat pump repair when necessary.

How does it work?

A pool pump is an efficient pool heater. It uses electricity to pull in air that’s been warmed by the sun and through a series of coils, a compressor, and a condenser. It is then pushed out into the cooler pool water to heat it.

What size pool pump heater do I need?

The size of your pool heat pump will depend on the size of your Bellaire Bluffs pool, not to mention the average air temperature where you live.

Is it cost-effective?

Aside from that required to power the unit, pool heat pumps use very little electricity. It is a very cost-effective pool heating option.

How often does it need service?

Have your professional technician perform annual service for your pool heat pump. Other times to call for service include after a tropical storm or power outage in Belleair Bluffs. Your pool heat pump may be making funny noises or is not turning on or is not maintaining a proper temperature. These are also indications that you need service and possibly pool heat pump repairs.

What about installation?

Here’s a quick checklist.

1. Contact a professional such as Carr Air Conditioning & Heating to install your pool heat pump. It is a complicated process and using a professional technician is wisdom.
