How to enjoy your pool all-year round with solar thermal energy

Taking a dip in the pool on a hot summer’s day is something many of us enjoy – but during the spring or the late autumn, it may not be so tempting. However, with solar pool heating it is possible to extend the season, save energy – and reduce costs.

How does solar energy work?

Solar thermal systems convert sunlight into a source of heat. As well as providing heating for your pool, it is possible to use a combined system that will provide domestic heating too. For swimming pools, solar energy could increase the average temperature by between 10°C- 20°C depending upon the amount of sunlight.

What are the benefits of solar energy?

1. Cost effective. Solar energy will be considerably cheaper to run than traditional systems that use electricity.
2. Environmentally friendly. They are clean, green and energy efficient, so you will be doing your bit for the environment too. Solar energy will also work even when overcast because the sun’s rays still pass through the clouds.
3. Long lasting. In addition to the 10-year warranty, generally solar energy systems will last for up to 20 years.
4. A sound investment. Obviously, there will be the initial cost of installation, but over a short period, the system will pay for itself. This will enable you and your family to spend a longer time enjoying your swimming pool.
