The SHP48 is an option to other free pool heaters like heat recovery pool heaters or solar pool heaters, and is a clear winner over all types of paid-energy pool heaters. The advantages of the SPH48 include the ability to operate in cold weather, as well as operation on cloudy days or at night, while achieving a low or zero annual energy cost to heat a pool. The unit can also function as a pool chiller to cool a pool. The unit is configured with four or more solar panels, depending on the location of use. During the pool season, the unit will consume more energy than is produced by the solar panels however, energy is produced by solar all year, so properly sizing the solar panel array can provide a low or zero annual energy cost for heating a pool.

Heating & Cooling function allows you to keep your pool at the desired temperature, automatically. the system is a pool heater and a pool chiller, as needed.
Solar-Ready means you can install it with or without solar panels, and add solar panels at any time in the future. By using the micoinverter approach, our system is set up to serve as the basis for a grid-tied solar system up to 9.6 kW.
Flexible heat pump pool heating system uses a titanium heat exchanger, so it can be used with salt or chlorine pools, aboveground or inground pools, and indoor or outdoor pools.
World's Highest Quality - The SHP48 pool heater is the USA version of the highest quality high efficiency heat pump pool heater sold in the European Union, where unlike in the US, strict government high efficiency pool heater performance requirements are enforced. We chose the top European model offered by the worlds #1 name in pool heaters as the basis for the SHP48 unit, and it is built in the same factory to the same exacting specifications. The difference between the SHP48 and the EU model - the SHP48 uses 60hz power vs. 50HZ used in Europe, and cosmetic differences. Actually these changes improved the product, as 60hz allows less watts to be used for the same capacity, and, the outer enclosure of the SHP48 is a new non-corrosive, non-metallic material rather than painted sheet metal.
