coefficient of performance, choosing a heat pump, pool water.
The yield of a heat pump is referred to as the coefficient of performance or COP. The COP is easily calculated: it is the ratio of power output to power consumption.
E.g. A heat pump consuming 1 kW and having a power output of 5 kW has a COP of 5/1 that is 5. The higher the number, the better the performance of the heat pump!
The exterior conditions such as the temperature and humidity of the air cause the power output to vary. Refer to our guide '"Choosing your heat pump' on p. 6/7
Our heat pumps are checked according to the measuring conditions set out by the Fédération des Professionnels de la Piscine (Federation of Pool Professionals - FPP). They comply with the European standards: Air at 26 °C, water at 26 °C, 80 % humidity; Air at 15 °C, eau at 26 °C, 70 % humidity.
