The Crosswind pool and spa heater is designed with intelligence, whisper quiet operation and energy efficiency. With its whisper quiet operation, you will forget it’s there, and the compact size makes installation a breeze.

Powered by inverter technology, the Crosswind can intelligently adjust your pool or spa temperature automatically based on heating demand to save energy and money. At heater start up, the Crosswind Inverter will run at full capacity for fast heating of your pool or spa. Once the heater reaches the desired temperature it will automatically shift into maintenance mode. In maintenance mode, the Crosswind Inverter runs at a lower heating capacity while maintaining your set temperature.

The ability to modulate temperature means the system can adjust its heating capacity in small increments to maintain a constant temperature. This results in energy efficient performance, quieter run times and the perfect water temperature.

Also with this unit you can double your fun during those really hot summer days. The Crosswind can cool your pool to an enjoyable temperature. Heat and Cool Mode means you can enjoy an extended swim season.
