Consider Renewables To Heat Your Luxury Swimming Pool 8th September 2015
Investing in luxury indoor swimming pools is certainly a big undertaking and one that requires an awful lot of thought. One of the main points to consider is how you plan to heat your pool if you live in an area where this is likely to be necessary.
Heating the volume of water in your unique swimming pool can prove costly but with renewable energy sources, this doesn’t have to be the case. Solar hot water is one way you could keep your pool heated, by using the rays from the sun. This comes with no operating costs, is easy to install and is highly durable so could well be the right option for you. Be aware, however, that on cloudy days you may find the water is cooler than when the sun shines.
A biomass boiler is also an alternative way of heating your pool. This carbon neutral heating solution comes with a buffer tank and pellet store that you can keep away from the pool area and then connect the boiler via a heat main to a heat exchanger in order to supply hot water to your pool.
You might prefer, however, to invest in a heat pump – one of the most efficient ways of heating your pool. It works similarly to an air conditioner except in reverse, although it does need an electricity supply in order to heat the water. However, because they’re so efficient they can exchange one unit of electricity to five units of heat, so you could save yourself a lot of money if you opt for this.
