People often ask us here at Sunlover: do I need solar pool heating in Brisbane? The simple answer is yes! The weather is just not hot enough to keep the water warm and comfortable for swimming all year round. With the average winter temperature sitting between 11 – 21°C and the wet February weather also bringing pool water temperatures down, there are certainly times when without pool heating, your pool will simply be too cold. As you’ll see below, installing solar pool heating in Brisbane delivers more benefits than you might think…
While the water temperature of your pool is affected by the temperature of the air and the soil surrounding that surrounds it, this temperature may still not be warm enough. If your pool is frequently too cold to comfortably swim in, you’re not realising the full benefit of your investment. Solar pool heating in Brisbane will keep your pool at a comfortable temperature, which is especially great if you have any potential users who won’t go anywhere near colder water.
If you do experience scorching hot days and need a refreshing cool dip, your solar pool heating system can also be used to lower the water temperature. Whichever way you prefer your water temperature, solar pool heating in Brisbane will ensure it is perfect.
A swimming pool that is too cold can quickly become dangerous. When the pool temperature drops below 21°, your blood vessels experience extreme constriction which causes some swimmers to gasp and inhale water. The ideal swimming pool temperature is 25 to 26°C, but without additional heating, it will usually stay between 18 and 20°C. Even though your pool absorbs heat directly from the sun during the day, when the temperature drops at night it makes it difficult to keep your pool warm naturally.
Value For Money
Are you using your pool as much as you thought you would when you first had it installed? Solar pool heating can extend your swimming season by several weeks into spring and autumn. You’ll also be able to swim earlier in the morning and later into the night when the sun has gone down, allowing to get more value for money out of your swimming pool.
Swimming pool heaters can add value to your in-ground pool, even if you’re not swimming laps every day. When it comes time to sell your property, you will find yourself in a much better position. For example, if you have installed energy efficient solar pool heating Brisbane homeowners will be more inclined to buy than if the pool wasn’t heated or used a more expensive heating system to run.
