Is solar pool heating expensive?

Every Australian family dreams of enjoying their pool in both the warmer and cooler months of the year. However, with installation and running costs of pool heating, you may assume that it isn’t achievable. It is true that there are setup and running costs to consider but solar pool heating is a solution which can make swimming a reality throughout the majority of the year.

Surprisingly solar power is actually an inexpensive way of heating your pool, and can dramatically decrease overall running costs when compared to other heating methods. Solar pool heaters utilise the sun’s energy to circulate heated water throughout your pool. This is why it is so cost effective. Solar pool heating systems work by pumping the pool water through a series of tubes that are connected to solar panels, often located on your roof. The solar panels use the sun’s heat energy to warm the pool water and distribute it back into the pool.

How much does it cost to install and operate solar pool heating?

The cost of purchasing and installing solar pool heating is dependent on the following factors:

  • The size of the pool? Larger pools will require more solar panels.
  • Will you use a swimming pool cover/blanket in conjunction with solar pool heating?
  • Where will the solar panels be placed? Will they be covered by shade at certain times of the day?
  • What is the climate like? Cooler areas may require more solar panels.
  • If the solar panels will be secured to your roof, is the roof pitch effective? Is the roof colour effective for conducting heat?

Solar Pool Heating Solutions start at around $3,000 and can exceed $7,000 for larger pools. The larger the pool, the more it will cost. But it is important to buy the right amount of solar panels for your pool. If you buy less than what is required to lower the price, you will not receive the results you were hoping for and your solar pool heating will be less effective.

When searching for a Solar Pool Heating company, it is important to ensure that they use high quality products that are built to last. You will find that some companies are lower in price, however this is often achieved through supplying and installing products that are of a lower quality. This will then result in less effective pool heating and cost you more in the long run with maintenance and/or replacement costs.

How much does solar pool heating cost to run?

Solar power is a great solution for heating your pool as it has minimal impact on both the environment and your wallet. Once the solar panels are installed, you should expect to pay less than a dollar a day to keep your solar pool heating system running. It is a much cheaper option than gas and electric heat pumps, which can cost around $750 per year to run. A Solar Pool Heating system will generally pay for itself within two years of its installation.

Is solar pool heating worth it?

Solar pool heating not only reduces the cost of heating your pool, but also extends your swimming season, so that you can enjoy swimming beyond the summer months. It is also the most environmentally friendly way to heat your pool, as it utilises the sun’s natural energy. Therefore, using solar power to heat your pool is most definitely worthwhile for people who want to enjoy their pool for up to 9 months of the year.

Solar Panel Pool Heating

Extend Summer with Solar Panel Pool Heating

Solar Pool Heating is an environmentally conscious and highly effective pool heating options that can prolong the comfortable summer swimming temperatures of your pool, and extend the swimming season for you and your family.

Installing some of the various solar pool heating options to your pool is a popular way to keep your pool heated and yet keep the overall running costs low. Solar pool heating options such as solar panel pool heating and solar pool blankets take advantage of the heat supplied by the sun and distribute that heat throughout your pool.

Solar panel pool heating systems pump pool water through a series of tubes which are connected to a solar panel which uses heat from the sun’s rays to warm the cool pool water and recirculate it back into the pool. Using a digital controller you can select the desired water temperatures and ensure your pool is set for your ideal swimming comfort.

A solar pool blanket is an effective way to trap the warm water in your pool, by creating a layer above the water’s surface to significantly reduce evaporation and escaping heat. Additionally, solar pool blankets use bubbles throughout their surface to increase heat retention and strengthen the blanket to increase its life. For extra convenience, pool blankets can be installed on manual or electric rollers for assistance when rolling out and reeling in your solar pool blanket.

How much longer could my swimming season be?
With the use of solar panel heating and solar pool blankets, you can extend your swimming season beyond summer and into the cooler months. Solar heating products can keep your pool water warm and comfortable for swimming up to 4-6 weeks on either side of the Summer months.

How much warmer will the pool water be?
Solar panel heaters generally heat the pool water temperature by 5-8°C. But achieving a significant rise in temperature is dependent on a number of factors.

What factors impact solar pool heating performance?
For example, the solar collectors used in your solar pool heating systems need to be large for heating to make a worthwhile impact. If the pool and solar collectors are covered by shade for portions of the day, this will negatively impact the ability of the solar panel heaters to heat your pool. Also, if your pool is located in an area that receives high volumes of wind, you will require more solar collectors, as wind causes water to evaporate, therefore resulting in loss of heat.

If your solar panel heaters are fixed to your roof, then the pitch of your roof, the roof material and colour will play a role in determining the effectiveness of your solar pool heating. Dark coloured roofs that are constructed from metal are generally best for conducting heat.

Keep in mind that solar panel heaters are still effective on overcast days, however the amount of solar energy collected is generally reduced by up to half of what would normally be collected on a clear sunny day.

Choosing an Installation Company to Install Solar Panel Heaters
When searching for the right company to supply and install your solar panel heating system, be sure to look for the following:

  1. Search for a company that is highly experienced in not only installing but also maintaining solar panel heating systems.
  2. Ensure that the company has all the necessary licences to install solar panel heaters.
  3. Narrow down companies that are highly knowledgeable and provide you with quality advice regarding the pool heating options they offer.
  4. Only select a company that uses high quality products from reputable and reliable brands.
  5. Look for extended warranties and be sure to check what is not covered under warranty.
  6. Ensure the company is competitively priced, with no hidden fees.

solar pool blanket | Solartech Pool Heating

How do solar pool covers work?

Solar pool covers or blankets, are specially designed sheets that are placed over your pool in order to contain warmth. Solar pool covers work by creating a barrier between the water and the air. This barrier is made up of numerous bubbles that provide a magnifying type effect, which enhance the heating power of the sun’s rays. Additionally, as the blanket covers the pool water, evaporation is greatly reduced, ensuring that the warm water stays in your pool.

Solar energy is the most efficient way to heat your pool. It provides you with a cost effective way to maintain comfortable swimming temperatures all year round. When combining your solar pool heater with a solar pool blanket or cover, you can reduce the workload of your solar pool heater by containing the heat within the water. Resulting in you requiring the solar pool heating less frequently.

Other benefits of solar pool covers include, preventing the loss of cleaning chemicals via evaporation and shielding your water, stopping bugs, leaves and debris from falling in.

So how do you use a solar pool cover?

To prepare your Solar Pool Blanket for installation, lay it out with the bubble side facing downwards over your pool. The bubbles provide separation from the pool water and provide a magnifying effect that will increase the heat gained from the sunlight over your pool.

Depending on the size and shape of your pool, you can trim the pool cover to better fit over your pool. It is most effective if your pool cover fits exactly over the water of your pool and acts like a skin on the surface. Ideally you do not want any extra segments of the cover to extend over the edge of your pool, as this will significantly reduce the effectiveness of your cover by allowing for greater evaporation to occur.

You will want to use your Solar Pool Blanket to cover your pool whenever it is not in use. Of course, daytime is the most important time for heating your pool as it relies on sunlight, and leaving your pool covered overnight will prevent the loss of heat through evaporation. This means that you may be removing and replacing your cover routinely during your swimming season.

How do I remove and store my solar pool cover?
If you swim in your pool regularly, removing the Solar Pool Blanket can be tedious and reduce the enjoyment you get from your swim. In order to more easily remove your pool blanket, you have some options available:

  • You can trim the blanket into smaller pieces. These smaller sections can be removed individually with less difficulty.
  • You can pull the end of the solar Pool Blanket from the pool and fold sections at the end of the pool.
  • You can install a Solar Blanket Reel so your blanket can be rolled up neatly.

Solar Blanket Reels are a practical way for you and your family to remove, store and replace your blanket on your pool each time you want to swim. The reel can be permanently installed at the side of the pool or often reels can be wheeled into place prior to use.

Whether you decide to buy a Pool Cover Reel or not, it is important that you remove the cover completely before anyone swims in the pool. If anyone is to swim whilst the pool cover is on, there is a high danger of that person being trapped under the blanket.

Solar Pool Blankets are an effective and convenient addition to any solar pool heating solution. By trapping the heat in the pool you lose very little water via evaporation, and ensure that the heating system is working to its full potential.

Solar Pool Heating System

Pool Solar System

The summer swimming weather has arrived and it is time to enjoy your warm pool! However, it is also an ideal time to prepare your pool for the end of summer and extend your swimming season with a Pool Solar System.

If you have been waiting patiently for the summer heat to warm your pool, you have missed out on potential swimming opportunities in the months leading in and out of summer each year. Installing a Solar Pool Heater can leverage the heat from the Sun to effectively heat your cold pool water during colder months and ensure that your pool is ready for spontaneous swims or set at a comfortable temperature for swimming on cooler days.

How do Solar Pool Heaters work?

A Pool Solar System heats your pool by collecting Heat from the Suns’ rays via a set of Solar Panels installed onto the roof of your home. A pump connected to the Pool Solar Panels moves cold water from your pool up to the roof, to heat the cold water and returns it to your pool as newly warmed water. This cycle continues as the cool water in the pool is replaced by warm water until a comfortable swimming temperature is reached.

Is Solar Pool Heating energy efficient?

The only power used to run Solar Pool Heating is required by the pump. Solar energy is used to heat the water and although direct sunlight is best it can still work effectively on overcast days. The ambient temperature of your roof is perfect to collect heat as it can easily exceed the air temperature on hot days. This near constant source of heat ensures that running costs are low,  but Solar Pool Heating setup costs can be high.

How much does a Solar Pool Heater Cost?

If you are ready to get a Pool Solar System quote you may be wondering what a realistic Solar Pool Heating Installation price is. Many Solar Pool Heating Solutions start at around $4,000 and can exceed $7,000 for larger pools. If you are interested in learning more about your Solar Pool Heating Options contact our Professional Solar Pool Heating team today!

How do I choose a Solar Pool Heating Supplier?
The leading Solar Pool Heating Installation Companies such as Solartech Pool Heating, provide a wide range of Pool Solar System Services for their customers. Some of the key benefits to consider include:

  • Provide Fixed Quotes and No Hidden Charges
  • Are Fully Licensed and Insured

Solar Pool Heat Pump & Pool Heating Solution | Solartech

Solar Pool Heat Pump

If you have been waiting all year for summer to arrive, so that you can enjoy your warm pool, you need to consider some Pool Heating Options and get comfortable pool temperatures year round.

There are two primary heating options for pools that will provide considerable comfort, and extend your swimming season by a number of months. These options are:

Solar Pool Heating

Solar pool heating uses Solar panels, which are installed on the roof of your home, to heat the water from your pool. The cold pool water is pumped up to the collector tubes or panels and heated naturally by the sun. Because the roof of your house can easily exceed ambient summer temperatures, it is the perfect place to heat your pool water. The solar energy used for Solar Pool Heating is free, so the energy required to pump water up to the roof is the only persistent running cost. This makes Solar Pool Heating a very efficient and effective way to provide comfortable heat to your pool.

However, as Solar Pool Heating relies on the sun to provide the heat, it will not work as effectively in the cooler months. A Solar Pool heater will extend your swimming season but only by a couple of months either side of summer, when the heat from the sun is at its warmest.

Pool Heat Pumps

If you are looking to enjoy a yearlong swimming season, then the best option is a Heat Pump. Unlike a Solar Pool Heater, a Pool Heat Pump draws heat from the air and releases it into the pool water. This is a very effective way to heat the water in your pool. However, even though Heat Pumps are energy efficient, they still do consume electricity and can therefore be more expensive to run than Solar Pool Heaters.

At Solartech Pool Heating we have tried and tested every Heat Pump on the market, and we find that EvoHeat Pool Heat Pumps are the best for Australian Pools. We only recommend EvoHeat Pool Heat Pumps to our clients. They are our Heat Pump Brand of choice because they are energy efficient, durable, built for harsh Australian conditions and use cutting edge components.

Alternatively, if you are after the benefits of both Solar Pool Heating and a Pool Heat Pump, so that you can swim in comfort all year round, then we can install a Dual System. A Dual System Pool Heating Solution uses a Solar Pool Heater in conjunction with a Pool Heat Pump. Using this Pool Heating Solution will allow you to enjoy the low cost heating provided by the Solar Pool Heating in the summer months, and then revert to the Pool Heat Pump when the Solar Pool Heater is less effective.

Solar Pool Heating Options | Solartech

Pool Heating Options

If you have been considering Heating Your Pool, then it is fair to say that you may be a little confused by the many different Pool Heating Options which are available.

It is possible to heat your pool in a number-of-ways, and depending on where you live, to the position your pool is facing, can have an impact on the type of Pool Heating System you may select to install.

There are also other contributing factors, which you will need to consider, when deciding on the most appropriate Pool Heating Option. From the size of your pool, your budget, and even your preferred energy choice, you really need to look at all the options available to you, in order-to ensure the heating of your pool, is in line with your Pool Heating Expectations.

When deciding on how to heat your pool, you will also need to ensure you understand the exact heating specifications, to enable you to make an informed decision. For example, if you wish to swim all-year-round, then a Solar Pool Heating Option is more than likely not the way to go. In this case, you would be needing to install a Pool Heating System which can heat your pool, even when it is cold outside and when there is no sun present. This is where you would need to consider a continuous pool heating source via either an Electric Pump or Gas Pool Heating system. This type of pool heating system could be quite expensive, not only to supply and install, but also the energy consumption to heat your pool, would be quite significant, and not for everyone.

However, if you would still like to extend your swimming season by a couple to a few months each year, then a Solar Pool Heating System, would certainly be the way to go. A Solar Pool Heating Option, has the following benefits:

  • Inexpensive to supply and install
  • Provides a consistent flow of heated water when the sun is out
  • Is extremely cheap to run, as the Sun is free
  • Is easy to service and maintain

Additionally, if you don’t have the budget to install a Solar Pool Heating System but you would still like to keep the water in your pool insulated and warmer to a certain degree, then you should consider a Daisy Pool Blanket.  A Pool Blanket, traps the heat in the pool, and helps to conserve water and may also extend your swimming season as well.

Daisy Pool Covers, also help to support the effectiveness of your Solar Pool Heating System, as it also eliminates 97% of pool water evaporation.

When deciding on a Pool Heating Option, you should also take-into-account, the quality and reliability of the Pool Heating Products. Ensure your Pool Heating System, has a good warranty and is supported by easily accessible parts here in Australia, as you want to ensure parts are readily available during the time when you would like to be swimming.

It is also recommended that you contact your local energy provider to get an idea on the annual expected running costs, to see what you could expect to pay, for the various Pool Heating Options available, to ensure you will able to make the correct choice that will suit your budget and your families’ requirements.

At Solartech Pool Heating, we can provide informed Pool Heating Advice, the best Pool Heating Options available on the market, to suit your specific requirements and budgets, and if you are interested to extend your swimming season by several months each year, and are looking to Install Heating in your Pool, then look no further.
