Turn Up The Heat In The Water With These Few Tricks

Do you love diving into a pool filled with warm water? Many will probably agree with you on this, but most will likely wait until later in the day, even on a summer day, to dive in rather than invest in an actual heating system for the pool. The reasoning is solid enough – heating a pool costs a pretty penny, and if you intend to use a pool only during the pool season, it does not make much sense to invest in such a system unless you really want to use the pool at night or throughout the year. That being said, what if you do want a heating system? How can you spend the least amount of money on this endeavour? Find out below! 

Invest in a good pool heating Perth system – this should come as no surprise, but if you want to warm up your pool and have it done as efficiently as possible, you need to invest in a good system. Take it this way – you can either skimp on the system at the beginning and spend more during the heating process, or you can spend a bigger amount in the beginning and enjoy more efficient heating at a lower cost. The choice for many, in this situation, is obvious. A good heating system can last you for years to come, and the energy savings will eventually build up enough to make the initial purchase worthwhile. Therefore, do not think about prices at the beginning, but focus on the efficiency of the system and find one that works best for you and your pool.

  • Do not solely rely on the swimming pool pumps Perth – as you would know, the traditional heating system of a swimming pool relies on pumps that warm up the pool by using electricity and the outside air. In other words, the efficiency of this system is at its peak when the air temperatures are warm – during daytime. It makes sense to rely on a heat pump during the day, but it costs much more to use these at night. So what should you do? The answer is solar energy. You can easily install a solar-powered system to charge up during the day and power the heating system through the night.
    • Guard against the wind – the wind is arguably the worst enemy when it comes to warming up your pool. A consistent wind can easily lower the temperature of the pool (that your heaters worked so hard to warm) and reduce the overall efficiency of your heating system. Since your pool is probably outdoors (and if not, the wind would not be an issue), you might want to build a barrier or a glass compartment around the pool to prevent the wind affecting your pool temperatures.
