5 Ways to Reduce Your Pool’s Energy Use

Of course, every pool owner is aware that maintaining a pool takes a significant amount of energy and money. However, you may not be aware that there are tried-and-true methods for drastically lowering your pool’s monthly energy use. Here are some essential pointers to keep in mind if you want to make your pool more energy efficient.

  1. Choose Solar Heating

Your choice of pool heater has a significant influence on your monthly energy bill, and pool owners have a choice between either gas or solar panel heaters.

While gas pool heaters heat pool water the fastest, they are very costly to run. In comparison, solar panel heaters and solar pool pumps, fortunately, are the most cost-effective method of heating your backyard pool. For example, a gas heater will cost roughly five times as much as a solar heat pump.

  1. Have a Professional Size Your Solar Pool Pump & Solar Panel Heater

Generally, the larger the pool heating device, the more energy it consumes; that’s why proper pool sizing is crucial.

If you utilise a solar pool pump that’s too small, it will continually be overworked and wear prematurely. But if you use a solar pool pump that’s too big, you will be wasting a lot more energy than you need to circulate the water in your pool. The best way to ensure you are getting the correct sized solar pool pump for your unique circumstances is to contact the professionals at Solartech.

Solartech technicians will ensure your solar pool pump uses the exact amount of power needed for the size of your pool, which does not overcompensate or undercompensate!

Many factors influence the size of a solar water heater for pool, such as pool location and water volume. Solartech’s solar heating experts utilise spreadsheets and computer programmes to determine the requirements for a pool’s solar water heater, ensuring the best-sized solar panel heater. The right-sized device may save a commercial pool facility thousands and residential owners hundreds in needless costs.

Since the right amount of electricity is used, the necessary overall run time is reduced, and your power costs are reduced throughout the season. Therefore, hiring a solar expert to determine the proper solar pool technology is critical.

  1. Utilise Your Pool Heating System Per Your Requirements

Although some homeowners utilise their pools on a regular basis and prefer to keep their pools heated all year round, each household is different. When you know you won’t be using the pool for several days, it’s good to turn off the solar water heater for the pool to conserve electricity.

For example, if you’re going on a family vacation, you may turn off the heating until you return, as you will be saving electricity. By reducing the amount of time your solar panel heaters and solar pool pumps run, you may drastically reduce your pool’s energy use.

  1. Keep Your Solar Water Heater for Pool Clean

Solar panel heaters and solar pool pumps must work harder if the filter is blocked or dirty, as debris create resistance. As a result, the cleaner your pool filter stays, the less resistance your solar pool pump gets. Keeping your solar pool pump running smoothly and reducing energy consumption.

Remember to maintain your filter and pump basket to prevent the devices from wearing out faster and wasting power. As the better, your circulation is, the less money you’ll spend on energy.

  1. Combine Solar Devices

Using two or more solar pool heating solutions simultaneously is the most cost-effective and efficient way to heat your pool.

Indoor air conditioning and pool heating, for example, function in the same way – would you use your air conditioner or heater while leaving your windows open? Isn’t that a waste of money? The same is true for pool heating; a solar pool pump’s heat might evaporate without a solar blanket for pool.

The solar pool pump will get the water to the proper temperature, the solar panel heater will keep it there, and the solar blanket for pool will keep heat safe from the elements.

Daisy’s solar blankets for pools are built tough from marine grade aluminium and stainless steel to provide years of trouble-free, reliable service and carry a 10-year pro-rata warranty.

How Much Do Solar Panel Heaters Cost at SolarTech?

Swimming pool heating prices are primarily dependent on the size of your pool. For example, a larger pool will need a larger solar pool heating unit to be most effective. That said, environmental conditions and climate will also help determine the best solar pool heating product necessary for your home. But in general, a solar pool heating system could cost anywhere from $3,000 to $7,000.

Solar is the most popular choice of heating systems for pools in Australia, as the technology works best in a warm and sunny climate. As solar panel heaters, solar pool pumps and solar blankets for pools are more consistent throughout the year, as the power collected on hot summer days can be used in the depths of cold winters. Plus, solar is also the most environmentally friendly method of heating a pool as it uses energy from the sun and is the most cost-effective pool heating option.
