Solar Pool Heating Sydney

Keeping your pool warm in the cooler months

Fortunately, swimming doesn’t need to be reserved for the warmer months only. With a solar pool heating system, you and your family can enjoy swimming in your pool even when the weather cools down.

What is a solar pool system?

A solar pool system uses the sun’s natural energy to heat the pool water, making this an environmentally friendly option. Pool water travels up to a series of solar panels that are installed on the roof of your home via a pool solar pump. The solar panels heat the water and return warm water to the pool. This process is repeated until all of the cold water in the pool has been warmed to a comfortable swimming temperature. For best results, a solar pool heating system should be used in conjunction with a solar blanket/ solar pool cover.

What is a solar blanket?

A solar blanket or solar pool cover is placed over your pool to help maintain the water temperature and stop heat from evaporating. Solar pool covers consist of bubbles that intensify the heat received from the sun. Solar blankets also help to keep pools clean and reduce the amount of cleaning chemicals lost through evaporation.

 How much longer can I swim beyond Summer?

Through using a solar pool system in conjunction with a solar pool cover, you and your family can enjoy swimming for 4-6 weeks before Summer begins, as well as after Summer. A solar pool system will typically heat the pool water by 5-8°C, providing that the conditions are favourable. Though, there are numerous factors that can impact the amount of heat generated, such as wind, which can result in the loss of heat through evaporation. Shade, roof pitch and the colour and material of your roof, can also impact the solar pool system’s ability to heat your pool. However, more solar panels can be added to counteract these issues.

What does a solar pool cost?

Pricing depends on the size of the pool, as a larger pool will need more solar panels to be effective. That said, environmental conditions and climate will also play a role in determining how many solar panels are necessary. Though generally, a solar pool heating system will cost $3,000-$7,000, with the possibility of systems for very large pools costing more.

Benefits of a Pool Heat Pump

When considering whether to purchase a Pool Heat Pump, it is important to first understand the how Pool Heat Pumps work. Pool Heat Pumps take the ambient temperature outside and convert it into heat, therefore allowing the pool to heat effectively with very little expended electricity.

If you are looking for an efficient and effective way to heat your pool, a heat pump is a popular choice for many pool owners. To help you decide, below are four key benefits of using a Pool Heat Pump to heat your pool.

Energy Efficiency

Heat Pump Pool Heaters are a very efficient means of heating your pool. Unlike gas pool heaters that rely on the burning of fuel, and electric pool heaters that rely on resistors, a heat pump pool heater uses heat that is generated naturally via the sun’s rays. Pool heat pump heaters actually generate more energy than they use, making them one of the most energy efficient pool heating options available.

Environmentally Friendly

Gas heaters require the burning of fossil fuels to generate heat, which in turn releases carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Heat Pump Pool Heaters on the other hand, don’t produce any carbon dioxide emissions at all and therefore are a very environmentally friendly option for heating your pool.

Cost Effective

Heat Pump Pool Heaters require minimal electricity to run, and as stated earlier, produce more energy than they use. This in turn helps to keep running costs very low. Initially pool heat pump prices may be higher than gas Heaters, but they make up for it down the track with lower operating costs than gas alternatives.

Durability

Gas and electric pool heaters may be cheaper to install, however they cost more to operate and don’t last as long as heat pump pool heaters. It is common for gas and electric pool heaters to last for 5 to 10 years, whilst in comparison, you can expect a heat pump pool heater to last for 25 years. That said, be sure to service your heat pump pool heater annually to maintain peak performance and increase its lifespan.

Here at Solartech Pool Heating, it is our mission to provide our customers with only the finest quality products. This is why we’ve spent a lot of time testing almost every heat pump pool heater on the market, to ensure that our products are indeed the best.

If you’d like to reap the benefits of solar pool heating, solar matting and heat pump pool heaters, so that you can extend your swimming season, then we can install a dual system for you. A dual system pool heating solution uses a solar powered pool heater in conjunction with a heat pump pool heater. This will allow you to enjoy the low cost heating that is provided by solar pool heating in the summer months, and then revert to the pool heat pump when the solar pool heating is less effective.

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.
