Thinking about heating your swimming pool? Here’s some handy information about combination pool heating systems and why these pool heating systems are the ultimate pool heating option for your swimming pool.
Why not utilise the cost-effective strategies of the Sun to heat up your pool instead?
Solar pool heating is one of the best applications for solar technology. Simple and relatively inexpensive closed loop systems allow your pool to be constantly filtrated with naturally warm water. Using the power of the Sun has never been easier in heating your swimming pool.
What about the cost?
Solar pool heating is the most cost-effective way of heating your pool compared to both gas and pool heat pump as it has very low annual operating costs. In fact the only operating costs are associated with a solar heating system are the running of a small pump and a controller and that’s it. Although there may be a high up-front investment, the costs will be recouped within a very short period of time.
Can I use it all year round?
The way solar pool heaters actually work is by absorbing the Sun’s natural energy as heat, which is then transferred to a piped system connected to your pool’s water pump. As the water comes up to the solar heating agent, it is warmed to a higher temperature and returns to your pool, heating the remaining water. Since a solar pool heating system pulls its power from the sun, it is subject to weather conditions. Therefore, on extremely windy or cloudy days, it will not generate the same amount of heat as it would on a bright sunny day.
So, what can you do to heat your pool during those cooler, overcast days – and in an efficient manner?
Combination pool heating systems
A combination pool heating system is a great pool heating option to get full-scale pool heating even in the colder winter temperatures and maintain a comfortable swimming temperature year-round. This type of pool heating system uses solar panels or solar collectors as the primary source of heating the pool water and then you have a secondary heater a pool heat pump that operates as a backup, for those cloudy, overcast days. By combining solar pool heating and pool heat pumps, you will have the best most economical pool heating system available. This means you can swim whenever you want at he temperature you want without having to worry about the cost of heating it, especially when compared to traditional pool heating systems like gas heaters.
