Rheem/Raypak Digital Heat-Cool Pump
Who ever thought doing something good for the environment would also save you money? It’s true! A Raypak heat pump is built with the latest eco-friendly R410A refrigerant that operates more efficiently than R-22. But the most amazing aspect of a heat pump pool heater is its operating efficiency compared to gas heaters. A heat pump operates at 5 to 6 times the efficiency of a standard gas, oil or electric pool heater. If you live in an area where your natural or propane gas costs have out-paced your electricity costs, the savings can be big.
Heat-Cool Selector Switch - Go from heat mode to cool with a push of a button.
Refrigerant Circuit (Reversing Valve) - Heat-Cool units have a unique reversing valve that allows the heat pump pool heater to cool the pool water during the hot summer months.
Defrost - Heat-Cool units have the unique ability to prevent ice from forming on the condensing coil. If freezing temperatures are sensed on the coil while heating, the unit can switch to the cooling mode. During the cooling mode, the refrigerant will be warmed by the pool water and send the hot gas to the evaporator coil to melt the ice. Once the coil temperature returns to a normal operating temperature, the unit resumes heating the water. This process only takes about 4 to 6 minutes to complete.
