Looking to buy a heat pump for our pool.  We are located in the northeast (Massachusetts), where the summers are warm, but the shoulder seasons can be chilly, especially at night.  We wouldn't need to use the heater during the summer, but really to get it to a minimum temp (low 80's), then in the summer it usually hits high 80's with no heater.  We would then use again in the fall.

Our pool is about 33K gallons.  Looking to understand what may be the best heat pump out there for this application.

Hi MassPools,

What I've found to be the best bet is for us to do a heat pump audit for you, this will give you the expected temp. rise and cost of operation based on your average weather trends and electricity costs in your area. To do the audit we would need the following information..

  • What is your zip code and city?
  • What is the nearest major city?
  • What temperature would you like to maintain? (82 -85 degrees is standard)
  • Do you want to heat the pool year round or just extend the pool season by a few months in the spring and fall?
  • What is the square footage of the pool? (For example, a 40' X 20' pool would be 800 sq. ft.)
  • What is the average depth of the pool?
  • Do you have high wind conditions from a lake, ocean or open field with winds over 20 mph consistently?
  • Will the pool heat pump receive direct, partial or no sunlight?
  • Will you be using a solar blanket?
  • Is the pool and indoor or outdoor pool?

Thank You

Thanks MassPools,

Based on the information you supplied we would suggest the Hayward HP21404T Heat Pro Heat Pump. We did a heat pump audit with Hayward for your pool and below is how this heat pump would perform on your pool. Please note the difference in operational cost with and without a cover, we always suggest a Solar Blanket when using a heater as it will drastically reduce your operational costs.

Can you please explain the difference in Hayward Heat Pro 140,000 to the Low ambient model?

I'm looking to heat a 16X32' gunite with a depth of 9.5 feet at deep portion.  Any suggestions on an electric heat pump?

Also, do you have tax on an item shipped to 11764?

Thank you, elizabetho
