Folks, please bear with me for a second here, I know its just about another thread about heat pump sizing....
Here's my dilemma. Because I have autocover and keep the pool covered between uses im typically able to keep the temps up well throughout the summer. Pretty much always above 80 all the way into beginning of October, but sometimes you just want those couple of extra degrees, therefore im getting the heat pump.
But I just can't make up my mind on the size. If I use the typical formula [total surface area]x[difference in temp wanted]x12, in my case (512x10x12), I get 60k BTU sizing. I don't have a large pool 16x32, around 19k gallons, and I certainly like the 60k BTU option from the cost perspective, but i'm afraid that it may end up being too small and I will end up regretting it later.
Any suggestions? Maybe from personal experiences?
