A heat pump, that is used to heat up a spa or swimming pool, can save you money because it uses heat energy from a renewable source. In the long run this will save you thousands in your monthly utility bill and you can be sure that you have a fully heated pool to swim in all year round.
What separates us is that our heat pumps go up to 40 degrees Celsius. Rain, hail, wind, shine or mist, it is designed to work in all weather conditions. You don’t need to worry about your pool cooling down in overcast miserable weather. Our heat pumps still perform at -10 degrees Celsius whereas most heat pumps shut down at six degrees Celsius.
Reap the beneﬁts of savings
Usually heating a pool 24/7 can get expensive but by using a Fireﬂy heat pump you will reduce your monthly water heating costs by up to 80%! We cater for commercial, domestic swimming pools, as well as spa heating.
We oﬀer the highest warranty on the market of up to ﬁve years, subject to your service plan. We even oﬀer you a lifetime warranty on the heat exchanger.
Let’s look at some maths on how our heat pumps saves you money
A 200 litre geyser has a 4KW element. A bath or shower in the morning for a family takes up about 30 minutes of use (drains the geyser) lets assume that the recovery time is 1.5 hours. The same in the evening. This gives us a total of 4 hrs per day
A geyser has a heat loss of 3.6 hours per day on average. Lets round this down to 3 hours. This gives us a total of 7 hours usage per day. Multiply this by the 4KW and by 30 days gives us a total of 840 KWhrs.
In most cases if the variable (number of hours) is correct the kilowatt hours should be between 60-80% of the total usage in a household (the average household). 840 x R1.47 = R1 234.80 (residential incl. VAT)
A FFD-5.4 has a power input of 1.28 KW and an output of 5.4 KW (or kilojoules)
We use the same maths keeping the variable the same
1.28 x 7hrs x 30 days = 268.80 KWhrs 68.80 KWhrs x R1.47 = R395.14
That’s a savings of 571.20 KWhrs or the equivalent of 571KG of CO2 – The rand value savings is R839.66
