POOL HEATING SYSTEM: Enjoy using your pool for longer than three months.
DON’T just clean your pool… swim in it with a solar energy pool heating system!
For most people the swimming season here in Spain does not extend beyond June, July and August, but would you like to extend the season to seven months of the year instead of just three? Solar in Spain can provide a solar energy pool heating system that will provide you just that.
A solar pool heating system seems very high tech, but does it really work?
Spain has the perfect climate for solar energy and pool heating is one of the most popular applications. A well designed solar energy pool heating system will be fully automatic, which means that you do not need to worry about the technical aspects.
How does a solar pool heating system work?
The Solmate solar pool heating system by Solar in Spain is fully automated. It has two temperature sensors and when there is a temperature differential between the water in the solar panels and the water in the pool the system switches on. The pool water is pumped around the panels for heating and then returned to the pool. This cycle is continued until the pool reaches its desired temperature. It really is that simple. The Solmate system uses a direct flow method so no heat exchanger or expansion vessel is required.
Solar panels can be ugly… how can I have a system that blends in with my property?
As with any solar installation here in Spain, it is important to position the panels to face as close to a southerly direction as possible. The roof of a property is an obvious place for the panels, however, solar panels are regularly used as the roofs of carports and pergolas. In this way, not only is your pool being heated but at the same time the panels are providing shade. The panels can also be used on a frame structure on the ground.
How much warmer will my solar heated pool be?
The swimming season in a solar heated pool starts in late March and runs until late October. In the slightly cooler months of March, April, May, September and October a solar heated pool will increase the pool water temperature by eight degrees. If a pool cover is used in conjunction with a solar pool heating system them the temperature difference can be as much as 10 degrees.
As well as extending your swimming season, a solar energy pool heating system will not break the bank. A Solmate system will cost less than a good quality heat pump. It is guaranteed for 10 years and has a life expectancy of in excess of 25 years. It really is the only way to heat your pool here in Spain.
