Hot Tub Heat Pumps
Reduce Running Costs
Our range of hot tub air source heat pumps (ASHP) are designed to heat your hot tub faster and more efficiently.
With a variety of sizes available we can fit an ASHP to any new hot tub or swim spa brought from us and in most cases retro fit them onto your existing hot tub or swim spa.
As well as being a more cost-effective solution to heating your hot tub ASHPs are also more eco-friendly than traditional heating methods.
When brough with a new hot tub ASHPs will generally return your investment within their lifetime.
How Do ASHPs Work?
The fan in the air source heat pump draws air over a network of tubes which are filled with eco friendly R32 refrigerant. The air then passes over the filled tubes, warming the refrigerant into a gas.
This gas is then passed through a compressor which increases its pressure and raises its temperature. After passing through a compressor the gas then passes through a heat exchanger.
Your hot tubs filtration system is plumbed into the heat exchanger where heat passes from the gas to your hot tubs water.
The Refrigerant then cools, turns back into a liquid and repeats the process.
How Efficient are ASHPs?
The efficiency of a heat pump is measured as its coefficient of performance (COP). This is the ratio of useful heat energy produced to electrical energy consumption.
For example a COP of 4 means that a heat pump supplies 4 times as much heat energy as it consumes in electrical energy. The higher the COP the more efficient the heat pump.
Conventional electric hot tub heaters have a COP of 1.
Which ASHP goes with my Hot Tub?
In most cases the C5+ heat pump will be appropriate for your hot tub. However you may wish to choose a larger model if you want your hot tub to heat faster, have a swim spa or want to use the electric heater and ASHP at the same time.
Our Vian Power ASHPs offer great value for money, being competitively priced with other hot tub heat pumps on the market.
We list the COP of all our Heat pumps as if they were operating at 10 degrees centigrade. This is because mean temperature in London and the South East is normally between 11.5 and 9.5 degrees (Met office 2016). This gives you an accurate picture of the savings you will make.
