## Also, are pool heaters worth it?

**If you want to get as much time as possible out of your pool, however, a heater is a good investment**. With a pool heater, you can easily be swimming May through mid-October, giving you a good five months of use out of your pool. That’s literally double the amount of time you’d get without one.

**30 BTU of heating output per 1 sq ft of living space**.

For every sq ft of living space, you need about 30 BTU of heating output. That means, for example, that for a 1,000 sq ft home, you would require a 30,000 BTU heat pump (that’s a 2.5-ton heat pump).

## What size heat pump do I need for a 50000 Litre pool?

## Should you oversize a pool heat pump?

Generally speaking, **you should oversize the heat pump as much as possible**. You’ll never regret going too big, as doing so means warming the pool at a faster rate without running the heater as much.

## How many BTUs do I need for a 20000 gallon pool?

One BTU raises the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit. There are 8.33 pounds of water per gallon. That means that if you have a swimming pool that holds 20,000 gallons, it requires **166,000 BTUs** to increase by one degree.

## Can a pool heater be too big?

A pool heater can be undersized: if it cannot replace the heat lost through evaporative cooling, the pool’s temperature will fall below the ideal. However, **there is no such thing as oversizing a pool heater**. The larger the heater’s output, the faster it heats the water in the pool, and it will not begin short-cycling.

## How noisy are pool heat pumps?

Heat pumps are **usually rated under dbA @ 1m**. This means the noise free to air at 1 meter distance from the heat pump. However, the sound of concern is often, will it annoy my neighbor, or keep me awake at night. So the sound level several meters away from the heat pump is the noise level to be considered.

## How quiet are pool heaters?

That should put things into perspective when you learn that the Aquaheat pool heat pump sounds from **36.8 dB**, which is quieter than a whisper or a library.

## How do I calculate what size pool heat pump I need?

**Subtract the average air temperature from your desired water temperature to calculate the required temperature rise**. Calculate the surface area of your swimming pool in ft2: Circular pools: radius x radius x 3.14. Kidney-shaped pools: length x width x 0.75.

## How many BTUs do I need for a 15000 gallon pool?

Pools up to 15,000 gallons should look at the Pentair **125K BTU or higher**, and 20,000 gallon above ground pools should look at the Raypak 150K BTU.
