Hot Tub Heat Pumps

Reduce Running Costs

Our range of hot tub heat pumps are designed to heat your hot tub faster and more efficiently. 

With a variety of sizes available we can fit a heat pump to any new hot tub or swim spa bought from us and in most cases retro fit them onto your existing one. 

As well as being a more cost-effective heating solution, heat pumps are more eco-friendly than traditional  electric heating methods. 

When bought with a new hot tub our heat pumps will return your investment and then some within their lifetime. 

How Do Heat Pumps Work?

The fan in the air source heat pump draws air over a network of tubes which are filled with eco friendly R32 refrigerant. Heat is transferred from the air into the refrigerant. 

The refrigerant is then passed through a compressor which increases its pressure and raises its temperature. After passing through a compressor the refrigerant then passes through a heat exchanger where the heat is transferred into the hot tubs water. 

The Refrigerant then passes through an expansion chamber, cools 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 our C5+ heat pump will be appropriate for your hot tub, however larger models will heat quicker. A swim spa or exposed and frequently used hot tub will need a larger heater. 

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. Be aware other retailers may advertise the COP at a higher temperature which is rarely reached in the UK.
