I have read all the informative advertising and some posts that all boast of how efficient Heat Pumps are. But in most of the examples, the advertisers are using extreme conditions in hot climate locations year round.
My question to all of you here is a simple one, I want to hear from those of you that are in the North East area that only use your pool for a few months a year. How do you feel about GAS vs a Heat Pump?
Am I really going to save a considerable amount of money to make it worth it to sacrifice the slow desired temps that a heat pump gives you vs being able to reach the desired temps in a few hours with gas?
Im in NY, I plan on only swimming a few days a week and on weekends only for 3 or 4 months that the north east region allows.
Is it really that efficient to run a heat Pump 24/7 to maintain a desired temp just so it is always at that temp when I choose to swim 3 or 4 days a week vs just running gas a few hours on the days I want to swim? With these conditions factored in, do you still think I will be saving enough to make it worth it?
