Five Environmental Benefits of Solar Pool Heating

Do you want an environmentally conscious opinion to keep your pool warm? Solartech uses state of the art solar panel heaters, solar pool pumps and solar blankets for pools, installed by our trained solar pool heating experts. The best part of installing a solar water heater for your pool is that it is an environmentally conscious solution whilst being cost-effective and easy to maintain.

Five Environmental Benefits of Solar Pool Heating from Solartech are:

  1. Solar Heating uses Renewable Energy

Most modern heating systems use electricity or gas to provide heat to water; this is an expensive way to heat water and has a negative impact on our environment. Electricity and gas burn fossil fuels producing tons of carbon dioxide, which is released into the atmosphere. Instead, solar panel heaters use the sun’s renewable energy, which can be used repeatedly as solar heating runs on a natural resource – the sun’s rays. A residential solar water heating system can drop the average family’s consumption by 50-80%.

  1. Solar Heating uses High-Quality Materials

Solartech Pool Heating Australia only uses top quality panels that are manufactured in the USA. Unlike some competitors on the market, our products do not use dated or cheap materials and are therefore replaced much less frequently. Our solar panels are built to last and therefore create less waste, as you will not need to replace our system for years to come. Our panels are made of polypropylene, a long-lasting and robust material, which makes our panels suitable to the Australian Climate and the varied requirements of Australian pool owners.

  1. Solar Heating Protects Air Quality

As stated above, most modern heating systems require the burning of fossil fuels to heat water, with these methods polluting our air and contributing to a number of negative environmental and health effects. Not only does solar heating not contribute to these effects, but it provides an alternate sustainable heating option with positive benefits for our environment.

  1. Solar Heating Takes Less Physical Space

Our solar pool heaters are small appliances using panels placed out of the way on your roof to collect solar energy. Unlike larger solar panels, our solar heating circulates water to be heated by the suns rays into your pool and contain it with magnifying bubbles in a solar pool blanket. Our solar appliances are much smaller than the traditional solar roof panels and suitable for households who do not have huge roof space available or wishing for a subtle heating option, tucked away out of sight.

  1. Solar Heating has a Socio-Economical Status

Being environmentally responsible with your household’s heating is also trending as today, people prefer solar appliances in their homes more so than ever, according to Australian Energy Council’s most recent Solar Report, studies show that homes with solar sell faster and at higher prices than those without. Thus, with Solartech our swimming pool heating options can not only increase the value of your home, but some utility companies and governments offer rebates for installing solar water heaters and other solar energy appliances in your home.

Swimming Pool Heating Prices

Swimming pool heating prices are largely dependent on the size of your pool. For example, a larger pool will need a larger solar 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.

Recent Solar News Helping You Save Money

Solar Power has become the cheapest form of electricity on the planet, deemed by the International Energy Agency (IEA). The IEA 2020 report stated solar power is the clear leader for our future energy markets. They predicted that solar prices will continue to fall as solar electricity becomes more adopted in households. Especially in places “like India that rely heavily on coal-fired electricity where the costs of producing solar power could drop up to 65 per cent across the next two decades”. This is a game-changer.

On 12th October, South Australia met 100% of the state’s electricity demand, which was a world first. Rooftop solar panels on tops of homes and businesses generated 76% of the demand, with the rest provided by utility solar. The generators even produced excess energy, which was stored in batteries and sent to Victoria. This milestone was sustained for one hour, achieved with perfect weather conditions, no clouds, low wind and low demand of electricity. With summer coming up, the 100% spike is expected to be achieved many more times.

What does this News mean for my Solar Household?

When governments put funding into solar energy, it not only cuts down emissions but benefits the individual in two ways.

Household electricity and water costs are reduced, as cost per unit is cheaper for you to buy, due to the increase in countrywide solar use. Eventually, your house’s panels will be able to support all of your home’s electricity; significantly reducing your monthly bills. But your panels will also be able to produce extra electricity, which is given to Australia’s system and you’ll get a cash return. For example, the Newcastle Waters Station in the Northern Territory will be the new location for the world’s largest solar farm. At 12 000 hectares, generating 10 gigawatts of solar electricity once constructed it would be able to supply all of Australia and some of Singapore, with ongoing emission-free renewable electricity.

Government funding also improves the reliability of solar electricity. More jobs will be created for solar technicians, who can assist if you ever have issues or need solar panels installed. As of 17th September, a funding boost of $1.9 million has been committed by the federal government for renewable energy corporations to invest in new technologies, including carbon capture and storage, hydrogen, soil carbon, and green steel. This includes a sector-specific grant program to help large scale hospitality facilities upgrade to solar.

Solar Pool Systems: Frequently Asked Questions

Solartech Pool Heating has been supplying Solar Pool Systems and Solar Pool Heat Pumps for more than 20 years. Below are some common questions that we get asked on a regular basis, in relation to Solar Pool Systems and their effectiveness:

What is a Solar Pool System?

A Solar Pool System harnesses the sun’s natural energy, using it to heat pool water in an environmentally friendly manner. Water is sent up to a series of Solar Panels that are installed onto the roof of a home via a Solar Pool Heat Pump. The Solar Panels, commonly installed on the roof of your home, heat the water and send back warm water into the pool. This is continually repeated, until all of the pool water has reached a comfortable level of warmth.

What does a Solar Pool cost?

The size of the pool will determine the cost of a Solar Pool System. This is due to the fact that larger pools require more Solar Panels for effective heating. Aside from pool size, there are a range of factors that contribute to the number of Solar Panels needed. Some of these factors include climate, environmental conditions, level of shade, roof pitch, roof colour and roof material. These factors will contribute to the amount of heat that is generated. For e.g high winds can cause loss of heat through evaporation. Typically though, the Solar Pool cost will be somewhere between $3,000 and $7,000, and possibly even more for very large pools.

How much warmer will the pool water be with a Solar Pool Heat Pump?

After installing a Solar Pool System, you and your family and friends will be able to enjoy a 5-8°C spike in water temperature. However, using a Solar Pool Cover/Solar Blanket in conjunction with a Solar Pool Heat Pump will help to retain warm water and minimise evaporation. 

Can I extend my swimming season with a Solar Pool System?

If using a Solar Pool System in conjunction with a Solar Pool Cover/Solar Blanket, it is likely that you’ll be able to extend your swimming season by 4-6 weeks before and after Summer.

 Is a Solar Pool System energy efficient?

A Solar Pool System is an efficient way to heat your pool, as it mostly uses the sun’s energy to heat the water. The Solar Pool Heat Pump requires the use of electricity to circulate the water, although the rest of the Solar Pool System is powered by solar energy. This greatly differs to gas pool heaters which utilise fossil fuels, and electric pool heaters which use resistors.

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.
