Installing a solar pool heating system isn’t an easy feat but is certainly a wise decision to save costs while resorting to greener heating solutions. Pool heating is assumed to be synonymous with high monthly bills and upkeep, but it’s just not true. A professionally installed pool heating system is pure bliss. If your deciding which heating systems to choose or you aren’t getting the benefits on a system you’ve already paid for, time to invest in something better. This blog will help you make the right decision in choosing the right solar pool heating system for your pool.
Evaluate these key considerations to know if you’re getting value for your money:
1. Size of the System
Installing a correctly sized solar pool heating system allows your pool to remain functional all year round while ensuring that you get the best out of it. A professional pool heating company can perform a sizing analysis to determine the size of pool heating systems required. This can depend on several important factors like pool size, desired pool temperature, the direction of the roof, the length of the swimming season required, climate, heating requirements and more.
2. Material Quality
Since there are multiple options available, you must always ask the pool heating company what kind of materials are being used. At Pool Solar & Spa, we make use to only use premium quality materials that exceed the Australian standards and can withstand even the harshest weather conditions. We only provide Australian-made pool heating solutions as opposed to the cheaply-made Chinese counterparts. Moreover, since we use only Australian-made products, which are of the highest quality in the world, warranty claims rarely arise.
Is your solar pool heating system prefabricated or customized? Prefabs have their own advantages, but custom-made systems provide better flexibility while matching the overall aesthetics. At Pool Solar & Spa, we provide fully automated, high performing personalized heating solutions to suit your needs.
4. Pool Pump
Flow matters! So you must verify that the pool pump is correctly sized and fitted. This ensures the system works to its maximum efficiency, and the current water flow doesn’t go beyond the requirements.
5. Solar Panel vs. Solar Matting
Solar matting and solar panels are the two most commonly used options. Some people find solar panels more accessible and affordable. However, these often fail to heat the pool water adequately. Solar matting, on the other hand, they are a more robust and flexible solution and also have a longer lifespan. Make sure you know which of these your solar pool heating company is providing.
6. Roofing Support
Solar pool heating systems make use of high-quality solar matting affixed and positioned at certain angles to accumulate and heat the pool’s water with the sun’s energy. To maximize the system’s performance, installation can be done on a shed, garage or house roof, as necessary. We strongly recommend talking to the professionals regarding the roofing support, for one, to know that the roof can safely support the volume for water on top of the roof and secondly to maximise the system’s efficiency. At Pool Solar & Spa, we offer fully customized solar pool heating solutions for a wide range of roofing types.
