Climate Solar Pool Heating

Extend your swimming season with solar pool heating

With a solar pool heating system in place, you can double the length of your swimming season Imagine enjoying an invigorating dip in early November or late April. Sounds nice, doesn’t it?

Solar pool heating is also a great idea for schools. By extending the time that schoolchildren can use the swimming pool, we give them more opportunities to strengthen their swimming skills. The swim team will also benefit from a longer outdoor swimming season.

At Climate, we offer a simple way to heat your swimming pool by using the sun’s energy. You are probably already familiar with the basic concept that makes the system effective – dark materials get warmer in the sun. In this system, panels made up of tiny black tubes are fitted on your roof in groups called arrays or panels. Water from the pool enters these tubes via a feed line. As the water moves through the tubes, it is warmed by heat from the sun. The water is then sent back to your swimming pool by a return line, raising the pool’s water temperature.

While the science behind solar pool heating is straightforward, the entire system is very sophisticated. In-built temperature controls allow you to easily set the target temperature and the system controller does the rest.

Things to consider

You can obtain the maximum effect from your solar pool heating system by making certain changes around your pool area. For example, trimming back trees to give the pool as much sun exposure as possible or having darker coloured pool walls and floor. A pool enclosure can also be used at night to keep heat in.

The size of your solar array will depend upon these factors, pool size and roof attributes such as shape, size, and orientation. Our solar experts will take these factors into consideration when determining the size needed to heat your pool.

Heliocol solar pool heating from Climate

Heliocol has been manufacturing solar heating systems since 1978. Some of these early systems are still in good working order today! Not only are all panels fully tested under extreme pressure during production, but the fittings that attach the panel arrays to the roof are made to withstand extreme forces, including high winds (up to 190 KMH) and high heat (up to 80°C). In windy, sunny New Plymouth, we think durability is a pretty important thing! In addition, all panels, fittings, and the fixing system are covered by an unconditional 10-year warranty.
