Swimming Pool Heat Pumps

Swimming Pool Heat Pump Operation ; Environmental refrigerant gas absorbs and transfers the heat energy through the refrigeration circulation system. The Heat Pumps fan circulates air through the outer Evaporator Air Coil that acts as a heat collector. The liquid refrigerant in the air coil absorbs the available heat in the air transforming it to a gas. The refrigerant gas is then pumped by the Compressor. When warmed the gas is compressed, it intensifies or concentrates the heat. This intensely hot gas is then pumped into the Heat Exchanger Condenser where the actual heat exchange takes place. As the pool water passes through the Heat Exchanger, the hot gas gives up its heat to the cooler pool water. The refrigerant returns to a liquid state and is pumped through the Expansion Valve and then into the Evaporator Air Coil to start the process over again.
