SWIMMING POOL HEATING SOLUTIONS

Why choosing a heating system?

Did you know?

• Equipping the pool with an isothermal cover allows to divide the power need by 2! As a result, if 12kW is needed to heat a pool without an isothermal cover, 6kW is enough to heat the same pool with an isothermal cover.
• Using the heat pump when the outdoor air is the hottest will allow to maximize the performances (hence minimize the electricity consumption). Heating during hot sunny days and covering at night is the optimal solution!
• Covering the pool at night (or when the outdoor air temperature is fresher) with an isothermal cover, will slow down the decrease of pool temperature.

PARAMETERS FOR CHOOSING A HEATING SYSTEM

To define a system suitable for a pool, many parameters need to be considered.
The most important parameters (but non-exhaustive) are the ones below:
1. Average outdoor air temperature (°C)
2. Desired pool water target temperature (in °C)
3. Period of use
4. Pool volume (m3)
5. Presence of an isothermal cover or not
6. Filtration time
* The choice of heating equipment also depends on the energy source that will be used.

HEAT PUMPS

The economical and ecological solution Heat pumps are the ideal solution for heating the pool while also saving energy. The heat pump is a thermodynamic system. Its operating principle is very simple: the system takes calories from the air and transfers them directly to the water in the pool. Heat pumps can be installed easily on pools under construction and on existing pools, by a simple electrical or hydraulic connection.
