Solar Pool Heating
Solarpro will provide one emailed quote giving you prices on three different types of solar pool heating systems – Enclosed Panels, Open Panels and Open Strip Matting.
These are the three types of solar pool heating currently on the market. We can also provide a quote on electric heat pumps that can be powered by a solar system and gas heating and all our quotes include a price on a pool blanket.
Modern Solar Pool Heating
While the basic concept of solar heating remains the same as the black strips that cover many roofs, new technology has presented two more efficient options that make a difference to the heat of your pool and the length of your swim season. Bear in mind:
- Wind not only cools your pool down it also strips the heat out of solar heating systems where the collectors are exposed.
- Roof space is becoming valuable in terms of how many solar systems can be installed
At Solarpro we have researched the market for the systems we believe offer the best value in each of the different solar heating categories – Enclosed Panels, Open Panels and Strip Matting.
1) Compact enclosed panels – extend your swim season
The most sophisticated pool heating system available and the way to significantly extend your swim season. Aesthetically pleasing, this versatile, compact and enclosed panel retains more heat than other systems because it is wind-proof: Learn more…..
- It is wind-proof.
- It takes up 40% less roof space than matting systems and can be ground mounted.
- It’s cocky-proof too! They won’t get near it!
2) The open panel
This concept seeks to increase heat retention compared to matting systems and has some of the attributes of the enclosed panel. Our product choice is a leader in its class. It uses solid interconnected flow tubes that are more durable than other systems and reduce heat loss by eliminating wind blowing between them: Learn more…..
- Uses 20% less roof space than a strip matting system
- Cockatoo and vermin resistant
3) Strip matting collector
The traditional and most inexpensive solution but it is exposed to the wind which will cause heat loss and it takes up a lot of roof space. We install a modern version of this budget system:
- The lowest up front cost way to heat your pool
- Great for roofs with limited flat section to install panels
Pool blankets – retain heat: save money: look good!
Solarpro highly recommends pool blankets. 40% of heat loss escapes from the pool’s surface. It’s like trying to heat your home without a roof on! Without any other heating they will raise the temperature by up to 7 degrees and they don’t have to look messy. Learn more…
Solar powered pool pumps – running the pool free forever!
Remove your pool pumping costs forever with pumps that run your pool using the sun’s energy. We can install a solar powered pump as part of a solar heating package. Learn more…
Looking for non-Solar Solutions?
We believe solar is an excellent pool heating solution, especially now that enclosed panels make it possible to extend the polar ends of the swimming season. However, we have also researched the market for the most innovative Gas Pool Heating systems and Electric Heat Pumps that can be powered by a new or existing solar system.
Unique money saving extras
At Solarpro we have your ongoing running
costs at the forefront of every system we
recommend. We use creative techniques
in our installations to keep your running
Pump less and heat more
Solarpro precisely adjusts the rate water flows through the solar collectors to maximise heat and stop unnecessary pumping.
One pump instead of two
Solarpro’s creative plumbing can enable you to heat with one pump, not two. This alone will halve your running costs.
Money saving products
Solarpro uses enclosed panels that ‘bank heat’. A precise temperature is taken from the solar collector rather than the roof surface. The pump only operates when it is needed so you save money.
Eliminate all running costs
Solarpro can design a system that lets you heat and filter your pool using free energy from the sun.
Pool Heating Blankets
If you do nothing else in terms of heating your pool at least put a pool blanket on, particularly at the polar ends of the swim season.
Solar Powered Pool Pump
Running an electric swimming pool pump, particularly during the day, is one of the largest energy costs to your household.
Electric Heat Pumps
Obviously, the most cost-effective way to heat your pool is using solar. Now that compact, wind-resistant solar pool heating is available you are able to
