Unheated swimming pools are currently quite chilly! So you'd like to have a pool party 
during the cooler months. You can have your pool heated for just that occasion, by turning the pool heat pump on 12 hours
* before. Heat pumps are economical to operate and deliver significant savings over gas and conventional pool heating systems.

Heat pump pool heaters uniquely transfer solar heat energy found in air to water. The major advantage of pool heat pumps is that they are extremely energy efficient. In simple terms, heat pump pool heating consume very little energy by way of electricity to operate, compared to the amount of energy they produce in the form of heat.  For example, if a heat pump pool heater consumes 2 kWHr of electricity, it will produce 6 to 10 kWHr of heat energy.  Combined with their high-energy efficiency, heat pump pool heaters are available for connection to off peak electricity pricing. Not only do heat pump  pool heating provide great savings in heating costs, they also play an important part in reducing CO2 emissions. You'll be joining an increasing number of people, alleviating some undesirable effects of climate change.  For the more technically minded, click here to see the Fact Sheet on Heat Pump Pool Heating from SPASA (Swimming Pool & Spa Association of NSW)

*Conditions apply: This time depends on the temperature of the air at heating time, pool size, current and target water temperature and kW rating of heat pump.  Contact us for a pool heating system design for your requirement.   

    
20 to 22 C all through March     Enjoy Winter family pool activities by heating your pool up and using it and its surroundings for fun, entertainment and even for a barbecue, just as around the pool at Prince Albert Park. Call Steve 0408 227 581 for a quick fix.
    Having your pool heated every day may be too expensive for most households. You can however, have your pool heated ON DEMAND for a special occasion. Heat pump heating
gets you to use your pool 
whenever you want to in cooler but sunny Winter weather at  CHEAPEST RUNNING COST.
   So take control of your pool's temperature!  Click herefor enjoying your pool whenever you want to in WINTER.  Don't let the weather dictate your life! Keep the chill out of the pool.

Points to consider when you decide to have 
your pool heating installed

Deal Direct with Sydney Pool Heating, a Pool Heating Specialist 
who can show you how to have your normal GAS HEATER RUNNING COST  DRASTICALLY CUT 
in specially designed POOL HEATING SYSTEMS, followed by supplying your choice of heater 
and installing it, offering 7 years warranty on workmanship.
      
        

Designing, supplying and installing a specific pool heating system 
is a complex interconnected or interwoven task that requires to be managed as a
project. 
We can manage the installation of your pool heating project, involving system design, plumbing, 
and
supplying a heat pump pool heater at a price, discounted from the recommended retail price.
        
         

Having your pool heated every day may be too expensive for most households. 
 However, you can have your pool heated for special occasions, 
fast
ON DEMAND at less than HALF the RUNNING COSTS 
of a conventionally designed gas heating system.
        
          

Heating your pool fast ON DEMAND for a special occasion, for a few days 
is a NEW concept. 
Heating your pool ON DEMAND is  when you decide to use your pool on a specific day or days.
          

In your heat pump heating system, having a solar blanket cover 
when the pool is heated or when the pool is not in use, 
prevents most of the pool heat loss by evaporation and radiation 
and also gains a little heat from sunshine if available. 
Thus the heat pump heater RUNNING COST is almost halved.
       
           

Further, by heating your pool in the 16 hours/day OFF-PEAK 2 
controlled electricity load periods, 
you can
CUT the circulating water pump RUNNING COST by just over 60%, 
by being charged at OFF-PEAK 2 electricity rate.
        

OFF-PEAK PERIODS for CONTROLLED ELECTRICITY USAGE
Typical off-peak periods offered by various electricity retailers

All times stated are based on Australian Eastern Standard Times (AEST).
Off-Peak 1 price is available for supply that is usually available for a 6 hour duration between 10pm to 7am.
Off-Peak 2 price is available for supply that is usually available for 16 hours including more than 6 hours between 8pm to 7am AEST and more than 4 hours between 7am to 5pm AEST.

FAST TRACK your pool's temperature NOW to 25 to 28 C
by heating your pool ON DEMAND during the 16 hours/day controlled electricity load periods

         

 

      

What are the Comparative Heating Running Costs 
of Using Heat Pumps with or without a solar pool blanket?

Using a spreadsheet modelling technology, Sydney Pool & Spa Heating can generate for your swimming pool a table of monthly average running costs for heating your pool water to a specified temperature.

The average monthly costs are obtained by averaging the monthly weather information from your area over a large number of years.  This information is obtained from the Bureau of Meteorology.  

The tables below show these monthly average costs* for maintaining the water temperature at 27 C for our centrally located Castle Hill swimming pool with characteristic features as indicated below.  The  tables below show the heat pump heating costs maintaining this water temperature with** and without blanket cover, the pool being exposed to the average monthly weather in the local area.

  Tables showing average monthly costs for maintaining the water temperature at 27 C for the Castle Hill Swimming pool.

 

 


The costs in the tables above give these average monthly costs for Spring, Summer and Autumn only. 
12 or 6 monthly average costs are also available.

As an example, if equipped with an appropriate pool cover, the average cost of maintaining the Castle Hill swimming pool at a water temperature of 27 C in October, using a heat pump pool heater would be $86 and without a pool cover $263. 

You can compare month by month  or annually, the running costs of using a heat pump pool heater with or without a pool blanket.  You can save more than 65% of the running cost by the installation of a solar pool blanket.  On this modelling for the Castle Hill swimming pool, on average, about 72% of the running cost would be saved by using a gas pool heater in conjunction with a solar pool blanket during October and November 2011***.

*These costs were obtained using 2010 gas and electricity rates.               **An appropriate pool blanket is used. 
Cost of
0 in any month in the tables indicates that pool is not heated and is unlikely to be used used in that month.  ***Conditions apply.

   
Lower the running costs further
The water circulating electric pump is also a substantial contributor to the running costs. In Sydney, the OFF PEAK electricity rate can be set up at less than half the rate during PEAK periods. Therefore, we recommend that consideration be given to heating the pool water mainly during OFF PEAK electricity periods, usually over night if it is safe to do.

      

POOL WATER TEMPERATURES FOR AN UNHEATED OPEN AIR SWIMMING POOL
Water temperatures have been obtained from a small Castle Hill open air salt water swimming pool about 1 metre under the water surface. This pool has a water surface area of 30 m, water volume of 40 m, no water heating installed, no pool blanket cover, no shade cover after 9:30 am, normal wind exposure and light bottom colour. 

The tables below sets out this Castle Hill's pool water temperatures during July, August  & September 2013.

The pool water temperatures would be different for pools in different locations and with different distinguishing characteristic features.

By a quick inspection of the tables below, you will see that pool water temperatures had been 9 to 14 C all through July and in August, the pool temperatures had been 10 to 16 C. As for September, we seem to have slightly warmer days so far. These pool temperatures had fallen well short of the leisure swimming temperature range, ideally between 25 and 28 C.  This situation could be improved.

Thus the pool was extremely chilly throughout July & August 2013.  Installing a heat pump pool heater together with a solar pool blanket cover will then extend the use of your swimming pool into any day during Winter.  And if you heat your pool ON DEMAND when you want to use it, the cost would be less than what otherwise it would have been without a solar pool blanket cover. Heating up your pool initially on such a day would cost a little less than heating it without a pool cover. Then if you cover your pool when it is not used, heating your pool on the next day would cost much less as the solar pool cover would have retained most of the heat generated in the first heat up.

Ideal Winter weather for swimming in a heated outdoor pool 
and basking in the warm sun.
   

If it has been done in Prince Albert Park, you TOO can heat the pool up, on demand, at a surprisingly affordable price.  After your family and invited friends have a swim in your own gas heated pool, its surroundings can become a setting for fun, entertainment and for a barbecue.

For making use of your pool this Winter, contact Steve for a quick gas pool heater installation, service or repair while these sunny days last.
