|Three new energy efficient heat-pump pool heaters have been installed and are working like a charm. Come on in ... the water is a comfy 85 degrees!|
The picture below shows the three new heaters and the existing Propane heater that will be kept for use as a backup.
Historically we have budgeted $15,000 per year for Propane to heat the pool. But we have had problems staying within budget - in 2010 we spent $21,425 and YTD 2011 we are headed to again significantly over spend.
With the 3 new AquaCal SQ156R heat-pumps, the cost to heat the pool is projected to be low enough to both heat the pool and pay off the loan for the heat-pumps without exceeding our budget of $15,000 a year.
