    Another heating pool with heat recovery unit for AC or Geothermal heat pump thread

    I have the hotspot energy pool heater on my pool in NE Indiana. It does a good job once it is warm enough to use the AC. This year that was late June, but not normally. It cost me $ for the system, about $ for the refrigerant tie-in, roughly 10 hours of labor and parts that they do not send. And about $ in spa hose and fittings, 2 75 foot runs to go from pool pump to AC and back. So all together about $. Now I am getting ready to move and not sure if I would use it again. It does a good job of cooling the Freon for the AC and heats the pool well with the only operating cost being the pool pump needs to run when it is heating. My new house is 3400 sqft, so double the old one. and pool will be 40,000 gallons verse the 17,000 we have. The problem is I feel like I still need a heater for the start and end of the season. I also have a 3500 sqft shop to cool slightly and can put one on that. The house has NG / AC for the bottom 2 floors and a heat pump for the upstairs. This means I would need 3 units to get all the benefits. And that means I need to pay triple for the install, or $. Plus probably $ for spa hose, no fittings to leak. and I imagine at least $ for three units and the controller. That's almost $, ok just now doing the math answered that question LOL. But on my current setup its not bad since it cost Zero to run. If it wasn't for needing a commercial refrigeration company to connect it to the AC, (residential companies wouldn't touch it) it would be doable.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Understood. But the price of the HVAC install and my DIY plumbing is almost as much as the unit cost. That was all I was really trying to show. Something I wish I had known before I bought it.
