1/11/2015 - Come on in - .. the water is a comfy 85 degrees!

When Green Cay Village opened in 2007 we promised our residents a heated pool (83 - 85 degrees F) and we had a brand new gas heater to do the job. But it turned out that heating the pool with gas was expensive and by 2010 we were spending over $15,000 a year on Propane.

Our Pool - 30 Feet by 60 Feet - 64,000 Gallons

After considering a number of alternatives including solar panels and lake-sourced heat-pumps, we determined that air-sourced heat-pumps would be the most cost effective solution for us. We chose AquaCal SQ156R heat-pumps because they are more efficient when heating the pool on cooler days.

Three AquaCal SQ156R Heat-pumps with Existing Gas Heater for Backup

With our goal being to save money, we financed the purchase of the heat-pumps over a 5-year time period such that the sum of the payments plus the electricity to run the heat pumps would not exceed $10,000 a year - a $5,000 per year savings when compared to our budgeted $15,000 per year.

As for the results, things have turned out swimmingly. The pool is heated all winter long to a toasty 83 to 85 degrees F and we are saving $5,000 a year. And come 2017 we will have completed paying for the heat-pumps, thus only requiring $5,000 per year to heat the pool instead of the more than $15,000 per year we were spending before we installed the heat-pumps.

So come on in ... the water is a comfy 85 degrees!
