Swimming Pool Heating

Heating your swimming pool doesn’t have to be expensive. A heated swimming pool improves the enjoyment factor and lengthens the season so you can continue to swim even when the conditions outside are a bit cooler. Depending on the type of swimming pool and location we can install solar heating, natural gas, oil, electricity or an air source heat pump. We will advise you on the most suitable method for your pool to estimate running costs.

Each of the different types of heating methods have added benefits which you will be able to see below:

Gas or Oil Pool Boilers

The most common way to heat a pool is with an oil or gas boiler. These are better for fast heat ups as opposed to keeping the pool warm over an extended period of time. A Gas or Oil boiler is ideal for pools which aren’t in everyday use.

Air Source Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are the most eco-friendly alternative as they don’t use fossil fuels such as oil or gas. They powered by electricity and don’t rely on ambient heat. Air Source heat pumps are a similar price to your typical dedicated swimming pool gas or oil fired boilers, but due to their higher efficiencies have lower annual operating costs.

Electric Heating

Electric heating directly heats pool water via an array of stainless steel or titanium electric heating elements. With escalating electricity prices it is seen and the least viable of the direct heating systems and tends to only be installed in situations where there really is no other alternative.
