The best time to install solar pool heating

Pool water temperatures naturally vary from north to south, season to season, and even from morning to night. But wherever you live in Australia, Sunlover solar heating is efficient in heating your pool throughout the year. As the days begin to get longer and the sun gets a little higher in the sky, solar pool heating will now start to output significantly more power, making right now the best time to install solar pool heating for your Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne swimming pool.

Why install solar pool heating now?

There’s no denying the stats: summer is the best season to generate solar energy. This is thanks to longer average days, which means more sunlight for your panels to turn into free electricity. Installing a solar pool heating system now allows you to make the most of the 10+ hours of normal daylight during the summer months, as well as the best sunny days of spring. By installing solar pool heating now, you can dramatically reduce your electricity bills before the peak summer use period.

When will the solar pool heating start to work?

Before taking the plunge and installing solar pool heating, many customers want to know: how many days will it take for my pool to reach a swimmable temperature? Unfortunately, the short and rather unhelpful answer is: it depends. You can read more about the factors that influence this answer in the blog post here.

Start thinking solar

Solar pool heating will extend your swimming season by several months and provide higher temperatures during the main swimming season. It has the cheapest annual energy costs of all heating options. If you’re starting to think about installing solar pool heating in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane, keep in mind that you’ll need enough roof space with good solar access to maximise the benefit of a solar pool heating system. Speaking to a Sunlover Heating specialist can help you determine the best space to install the system at your property.

Not your typical solar collectors

Sunlover Heating rigid solar collectors have the highest BTU rating on the market. BTU’s are the unit of measurement for thermal energy, and the higher the BTU’s, the more heat that is retained by the solar collectors. Sunlover rigid solar collectors are connected by flow tubes which are much better insulated, keeping the water warmer for longer.

There’s no doubt about it — solar pool heating Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne is the most environmentally friendly and economical way to heat your home swimming pool. Call Sunlover Heating today for a free consultation with a solar pool heating expert.
