Hot Tub Heat Pump – Thermotec Eco Fun

thermotec eco fun pool heat pumps

UPDATE: THE WI-FI OPTION IS NOW AVAILABLE ON THIS HEAT PUMP

1. Description

The Thermotec Eco Fun range of pool heat pumps are ideal for use on hot tubs

Compared with using electric heaters to heat a hot tub, these heat pumps will deliver excellent cost savings.

The Thermotec Eco Fun heat pumps are On/Off heat pumps. This means that when operating the fan and compressor run at one speed (100%). The fan and compressor turn on and off as required to maintain the desired pool temperature using the inbuilt water temperature thermostat.

They can work down to -7c to still provide heat in low air temperatures

The Thermotec Eco Fun deliver greatly reduced running costs with COPs of up to 5.98. This means that for every 1kw of electricity used by the heat pump, 5.98kw of heat is delivered to the pool. This delivers reduced running costs compared with electric heaters on the market.

The heat pump is easily integrated onto the plumbing and controls of a hot tub.

They have low power requirements with the 5kw model only using 0.94kw of power to generate up to 5kw of heat to the hot tub.

The low power consumption also allows it to be run from a standard 13A UK mains plug.

We recommend that the heat pump is installed in the same circuit as the existing electric heater.

A switch can be added to the power supply of the existing hot tub electric heater. This allows the electric heater to be turned off so the heat pump can take over the water heating, however the electric heater can then easily be turned back on if required for a temperature boost eg in very cold weather

The Themotec Eco Fun heat pumps have a built in water flow switch. Once the hot tub reaches the desired temperature, the hot tub controls may turn off the water circulation pump.

If the water circulation pump is turned off, the heat pump will automatically shut down using its integral flow switch and will restart once the circulation pump restarts.

This method makes it easy to add a heat pump to your hot tub without changing any of the hot tub controls.

Please contact us if you would like advice on how to install the heat pump on your hot tub

3. COP And Performance

The Thermotec Eco Fun heat pumps can work well with outside air temperatures as low as -7c

Even as the outside air temperature falls, the Thermotec Eco Fun will still perform well, delivering heat to your hot tub.

The COP (Coefficient of Performance) is the ratio of the amount of heat (in kw) that the heat pump delivers to your pool compared to the electricity that the heat pump uses (in kw)

4. Extremely Quiet Operation

The Thermotec Eco Fun range work very silently thanks to a unique internal ventilation system
