5 Benefits of Buying a Solar Heating System for Your Pool

Not satisfied with just a few swims all year round? Feel like you did not swim to your heart’s delight this year?

Well, you can now use your swimming pool for at least six months more in a year by making use of the free energy that the sun has to offer. Solar pool heating is a cost effective and easy way to use your pool and pursue your favorite hobby for many more months each year. You no longer need to worry about the cold weather and can restrict yourself to swimming just during the summer months.

Let us look at the five major benefits of installing a solar pool heating system.

  • Swim longer – You can increase the value of your pool tenfold by using it for double the number of months than before by using a pool solar heating system. You can now ensure a lifetime of fun and entertainment with your family and friends all year round.
  • Low maintenance – With a track record of over 30 years of innovative design installations and improvements, our solar collector range ensures minimal amounts for ongoing maintenance. Being Australian made, it guarantees reliability and realistic prices too! Using a heating solar system itself reduces the need for electric or gas heating and helps you save a lot of money from the very first day!
  • Saves energy – One of the highest consumers of energy in a home can be the swimming pool as it uses heating modes such as pool heat pumps or gas pool heaters to get warm. A solar pool heater is a great alternative heating system for heating the pool. It produces no greenhouse emissions and has very little impact on the environment. Moreover, it reduces the consumption of household energy by a large extent.
  • Saves money – One can completely do away with the increasing cost of burning fossil fuels to warm the pool when using solar heating. When the sun’s energy can be used for free, why should you waste money on gas or electricity as a fuel source to heat the pool?
  • Performance – Several external factors determine the performance of a solar pool heating system, but the methods and techniques used in its installation play a vital role in it. This is why it is important that you use trained and experienced staff from a reputed company who will help you choose the right type of system that gives optimum performance for many years to come.

Buying a solar heating pool that can keep you warm during the winter months. You would love to get a solar heating system that can save you money and have lower maintenance costs. Unlike those electric or gas powered pool heating systems, you can easily install a solar pool heating system and forget about any running costs.

Principles of Solar Heating

The principle of solar heating is easy to explain: Pool water is pumped through black tubes while the sun is heating them. The pool temperature rises depending on how many tubes are exposed to the sun. Obviously, not all systems are the same. There are differences in efficiency, reliability and the ability to integrate with the structure and surface it is installed on without damaging it.

A Thermotube solar heating system is designed to be installed on your roof once only with no ongoing maintenance costs required.

  • As a practitioner who specialises in water therapy, it was a necessity to have my large pool heated to get maximum use. Adding solar heating has added around 4 months extra usage and enabled our young grandchildren to improve their swimming without the fear of cold water. It also allows us to swim in the early mornings and late evenings. I did my research and chose Thermo Pools because of their quality product, value for money and their guarantee against wind damage. They transformed our summer lifestyle of outdoor living to the maximum.
