It can be an expensive process heating a swimming pool with conventional fuels such as gas, oil, electric and LPG, and often very inefficient. Solar pool heating offers a cost effective, efficient way of heating you pool regardless of size, and provides excellent payback opportunities of 3 – 4 years. Solar thermal is best suited to heating pools due to their demand for a low heat and constant supply.
Indoor pools provide the ideal scenario for solar heating and have the potential to qualify for premium payments and future incentives such as the domestic RHI. The RHI is currently available for commercial applications. Although outdoor pools are exempt for grants and tariff payments this is still an excellent way of providing heat as they are used mainly through the summer months.
As well as heating your pool the collectors can be used to provide 60% of you hot water requirements annually. The solar thermal would act as your primary heat source, once up to temperature the heat would simply divert to the swimming pool; the process is often referred to as heat dumping. This system would maximise the solar potential and have a huge effect on fuel bills and CO2 emissions.
Installation of solar heating to your pool is simple and in extrusive. The collectors can be installed on either a pitched or flat roof using an A-frame system or ground mounted depending on available space. A heat exchanger will be installed to the pipework providing water to the pool jets; this addition will allow the solar collectors to heat the flowing pool water and transfer the heat.
Our control system allows you to monitor the temperature at the collectors and in the pool through a series of sensor probes, this controls the parameters allowing the system to operate safely and avoid overheating. Enviko can install monitoring devices upon request; this allows the end user to log necessary data such as generation and peak performance.
Enviko provide various turnkey solutions regardless of size and application. Upon survey we will assess a suitable location for the collectors taking into account structural capacity and application for planning permission if required. Due to the in extrusive nature of solar pool heating there will be minimal interference to the pool plant, in fact your system can be operational again in just a few hours.
Upon installation completion Enviko will assist you with grant application regardless of domestic or commercial application; all necessary meters will be installed for future readings and qualification for the proposed renewable heat incentive.
