I live in Rockland County NY , and am looking to heat my in ground pool (35k gallons)
Due to trees and the path of the sun, we get very little sunlight (a few hours a day at best) on the pool.
I'm looking to keep the water temperature 10 degrees higher than it currently is, and was thinking of buying a heat pump (with solar cover)
What attracted me most to it is the low cost to run (even if gas works out cheaper , knowing what it costs to turn it on, would deter me from using it too much)
Also I like the low cost of installation
However I read that heat pumps use the outside air, and thus are not effective in cold areas.
the average temperatures during the times that I'd be looking to swim are 70-85 degrees.
Is this a good fit?
What do you recommend?
