Heat pumps, heat exchangers and solar systems for heating your swimming pool water.
There are various options for heating the swimming pool water. To limit energy consumption, it is best to take the following things into account:
- Choose a well-insulated swimming pool
- Use a cover to prevent heat loss
- Smart and frequency-controlled appliances are always more energy efficient
What types of pool heating are there?
You can heat your swimming pool in different ways:
- A heat exchanger
- Double-walled stainless steel Belgaqua approved heat exchangers
- Single heat exchangers in stainless steel or TITANIUM
- Heat pumps
- ON/OFF systems with a COP around 5-6
- Inverter heat pumps with a COP of around 10
- Solar collectors
Heat pumps as an efficient swimming pool heating system
This way of heating is the most energy-efficient alternative anyway. The technological development of heat pumps is not standing still, every season there are different types with improved properties. You can divide each heat pump into three categories.
ON/OFF heat pumps for swimming pools
These are the classic heat pumps that operate on 0% (OFF) or 100% (ON) depending on the desired temperature. The heat pumps for above ground pools and swimming pools with smaller above ground pools are often ON/OFF
(Step) inverters are the first step towards energy-efficient swimming pool heating
These heat pumps can modulate to get in
depending on the requested temperature. Often this is provided in 0% - 50% - 80% - 100%. This distribution can be different per model. The closer to the desired temperature the lower the 'step' in which they operate.
Full inverters most efficient swimming pool heat pumps
Full inverter heat pumps can percent by percent
to work. These are the smartest devices. What makes them energy efficient
are and extremely quiet
are in operation. Even when they jump back up to warm up the pool water again, this will start softly and will not work the same as 100%.
Heat exchangers for heating swimming pool water
There are heat exchangers based on electricity. These are mainly provided for smaller (set-up) swimming pools.
of this heat exchanger is that you can heat all year round.
is that they do not work energy-efficiently like a heat pump.
via central heating on the gas or fuel oil boiler
Another type of heat exchanger is via the C
heating. You heat the swimming pool water using the hot water from your central heating system. The higher the primary temperature, the faster it can be transferred to the pool water. This will often be installed in combination with a heat pump to be able to heat an indoor swimming pool all year round, for example.
double wall heat exchanger for swimming pool heating
A double-walled heat exchanger is mandatory for public swimming pools. This eliminates the risk of the tap water ever coming into contact with the pool water or vice versa.
Blozoen solar collectors for swimming pools
Being blush solar collectors
which will heat up the pool water through the radiation of the sun. Very user-friendly, energy-efficient and durable. For this you need to provide 1/3 of the pool surface to place these solar collectors.
