PB wants $7k for a heat pump. That sound outrageous to anyone?

In a meeting with my PB a couple of days ago I saw that they charge $7k for a heat pump. Does that sound out of line?

I want to heat my pool, but I didn't expect a heat pump to be THAT much. More like $4-5k.

I would really prefer solar, but I don't have much south-facing roof, and what I do have is hipped, so it isn't so good for solar panels. I'm going to see if they'll install one of those solarattic units.

Hi barbja, we were quoted $5,000 for a heat pump. It probably has a lot to do with the size of your pool and location. Our pool/hot tub is 22,000 gallons and we're in New England. FYI - we ended up going with the gas heater as it made more sense for our needs. Good luck!

I think the physical heat pump costs around $2500-$3500 depending on the size. Electrical work (probably need to bring in a bigger electrical panel), + Labor. I believe ours cost 5k on top of our pool install. I am in New England, and I love that our pool is nice and warm all the time (heat pump runs an hour or so each morning to make up for the nights loss).

You should check out poolheatpumps.com. I do not work for them. I did buy our heat pump there and they have great prices. I can't remember who we had install it, but it was not very expensive installation and their prices can't be beat.
