Project Description

The objective of this study is to examine the energy savings, benefits, and drawbacks of various types of pool heating equipment. A macro-based Excel tool will be developed to conduct an hourly energy, cost, and GHG emissions analysis of five types of pool heating equipment: traditional gas pool heaters, condensing gas pool heaters, gas absorption heat pump pool heaters, traditional gas pool heaters supplemented by solar thermal heating, and hybrid electric/hybrid heat pump pool heat pump pool heaters. The result will be a user-friendly pool energy consumption calculator tool that will allow users to analyze their existing and prospective pool heating equipment, associated energy savings, cost savings, and GHG emissions.
