  2. If you prefer to have solar pool heating then do it with Solartherm enclosed solar pool heating panels.  Australian owned, innovative, energy efficient solar pool heating system.  The compact enclosed panels give you 40% more roof space for your other solar needs than if you went for strip matting or open rigid panels..  Designed so your pool is warm early in the season and stays that way heading into winter. The solar collectors are enclosed in a compact panel which protects them from heat loss from wind and makes them highly energy efficient.  Cockatoos can’t get at them either.

 

Australian Solar Pool Heating

Two great Australian designs to heat your pool without high cost to you or the environment.  Use a solar PV system to run an environmentally friendly heat pump whenever you want; or install enclosed solar pool heating panels.  Either way we can design a cost effective system to suit your needs and budget:

Solar Run Pool Heat Pump

With the correctly sized Australian-owned EvoHeat pool heater it is possible to heat your pool whenever you want for around $1.60/day. EvoHeat pool heat pumps are about six times more energy-efficient than similar pumps. Solarpro can combine an EvoHeat pump with a solar power system so you can run your heat pump on free solar energy whenever you choose. Resort style swimming free! You could use your solar power to run your pool heat pump when required and your air conditioner on other occasions.

Solartherm Enclosed Solar Pool Heating Panels

If you prefer to keep your solar power for other needs, then we can install an innovative Australian solar pool heating system and leave 40% more roof space for your other solar needs.  Designed so your pool is warm early in the season and stays that way heading into winter. The solar collectors are enclosed in a compact panel which protects them from heat loss from wind and makes them highly energy efficient.  They are also protected from cockatoos.  With the correctly sized system and used with a pool blanket our customers are more than doubling their swim time.

Solar Pool Heating Panels – Ground Mounted

You are looking at the largest privately owned ground mounted solar pool heating system in Australia.  The system has the potential to pump out a whopping 57 kilowatts of energy, all free from the sun!  The compact, enclosed SolarTherm pool heating panels make it possible to put them virtually anywhere, including on the ground.  This saves roof space which is becoming increasingly valuable for the installation of solar power systems.

People are increasing the size of their solar power (PV) systems because they are able to store their solar power in batteries for their own use rather than sending to the grid and to power their electric vehicles.  This decreases the amount of roof space available for traditional solar pool heating systems.

The SolarTherm panels are one of the answers to being able to benefit from solar pool heating as well as solar power.  There are two other innovative ways that Solarpro offers:

  1.  Purchase an EcoHeat electric heat pump and power it from your existing or new solar power system.  This will significantly reduce your costs.  We also have the technology to ensure your heat pump is powered only by solar rather than any grid electricity which brings your costs to nothing.
  2. The DualSun hybrid panel produces both heated pool water and solar power to run pool equipment and potentially domestic appliances with the correctly sized system.

Don’t hesitate to call to discuss how solar power can reduce your pool heating and running costs.

Solar Powered Heat Pumps

Did you know that a swimming pool heat pump can very efficiently heat your swimming pool with free energy from your solar system. When combined with the correctly sized solar PV energy system the running costs can be significantly reduced. In fact, we can add a device to one of our solar systems which will guarantee the heat pump uses solar energy instead of grid energy.

Running an affordable EcoHeat pool heat pump with free solar power is the cheapest way to swim in a heated pool whenever you want to year round.

A heat pump can convert 1kW of solar electricity into 15kW of energy. No solar pool heating system on the roof means more room for the car charging and battery charging solar panels in the future!!

Types of solar pool heating

Innovative solar pool heating panels can remove your pool heating costs and in some cases also the cost of powering your pool equipment e.g., the pump.  Amongst the range of solar pool heating systems we include a solar powered heat pump.  As one of a very few solar companies specialising in both solar pool heating and solar power & battery systems, we are able to assess your energy needs as a whole and save you the maximum money possible.

Solar pool heating panels

There are three different types of solar panels designed for heating pools. The DualSun heated pool water & electricity producing hybrid; enclosed pool heating panels and open pool heating panels.

The DualSun hybrid panel

The DualSun hybrid solar panel produces solar power to run your pool pump and other electrical equipment at the same time as heating your pool water.  A correctly sized system delivers a solar heated pool with zero running costs.  Like a lot of innovative products it is based on a simple concept.  Solar (PV) power panels require light to produce power but they don’t like heat.  They perform better when kept cool.  The DualSun panel uses water to cool the panel and then sends the now heated water back to the pool.  The solar power generated by the panel can be used to run the pump or other electrical items including domestic appliances if you have power left over.

Enclosed solar pool heating panels

Solartherm enclosed solar pool heating panels completely eliminate wind cooling.  You will be able to get in your pool early in the season and swim later.  The solar collectors are encased in high density polyethylene and the system ‘heat banks’.  A precise temperature is taken from the solar collector rather than the roof surface which ensures the pump only operates when it is needed – reducing your running costs and saving money.  These enclosed panels are compact enough to install on cabanas or pump houses.  We often install them in combination with a solar power system to bring your electricity costs to as near as zero as we can.  A solar power system and enclosed solar pool heating panels can fit comfortably on most roofs, particularly if they are replacing a strip matting system.

Open rigid solar pool heating panels

Essentially a modern, neater and rigid version of the old strip matting rubber tubes.  The Rhino Black open panel has rigid solar collectors in modular designs of various sizes. They are open to the wind but their design reduces the cooling effect and protects from cockatoo damage.  They are produced by Australian manufacturer Boss Solar and are a less expensive option to extend your swimming season.

Solar powered heat pumps

Solarpro’s advantage as an installer of solar energy systems means we can combine a pool heat pump with a new or existing solar power system to eliminate your running costs. You could use your solar power to run your pool heat pump when required and your air conditioner on other occasions. Heat pumps are inexpensive and guarantee heat when you want it with virtually no maintenance.

Pump less and heat more

Regardless of the solar pool heating panel you choose, we precisely adjust the rate water flows through the solar collectors to maximise heat and stop unnecessary pumping.  We do this with a Flow Rate Metre.  Some solar pool heating panel installers don’t do this.  Having a correct flow rate will save you money and we recommend ensuring your installer does this.

Making the right choice

Our solar pool heating experts will be able to quickly assess the most cost effective option for your circumstances and advise on your choices.  They will look at how your pool fits with your other energy needs and ensure you are getting the maximum savings possible.  Contact us.
