Swimming does not only serve as a low impact aerobic exercise. It’s also a way to bond with the family. Studies even reveal that swimming minimises stress and leads to a healthier and happier lifestyle.
There are thousands of public and private pools in Western Australia, but some of them may only be open in the summer season. There are those that offer year-round services, but the water might be too cold. This is the same issue for many of Perth’s residential pools. To greatly increase the value of your backyard swimming pool, install a heater for all year round or at least extended season swimming. Taking a look at the various pool heating options available will help you make an informative decision.
Understanding the Benefits
Pool heaters come in many different kinds, such as solar pool heaters, heat pumps, gas pool heaters and electric pool heaters. A gas or electric pool heater will be an affordable purchase, but it is not energy efficient and is pricey to operate.
A heat pump has a reasonable monthly operating cost and is very efficient. However, it still makes use of electricity when transferring heat to the pool. On the other hand, the initial cost of installing a solar pool heating system on your swimming pool can be significant, but the future benefits will outweigh the primary cost.
Benefits Make a Difference
A solar pool heater can offer a large return on investment, especially because it lasts for around 15 to 20 years. It requires very minimal maintenance and utilises the sun’s energy as a free and renewable resource.
Solar pool heating systems use solar collectors installed on the roof to transport heated water back to the swimming pool via a solar pool pump. This process continues over and over again until the pool water reaches the desired temperature. When people rely on the power of the sun to heat their pool water instead of fossil fuels, it helps slow down climate change and global warming.
