Solar PV + Heat Pumps

Integrating your rooftop solar panels with your pool heat pump can super charge your energy savings, providing a highly efficient pool heating solution.

Solar panels work best when used in conjunction with battery storage because the energy generated during the day can be stored and used in the evening when the demand for power is the highest. However, pool owners can take advantage of solar PV panels without having to spend thousands of dollars for a battery because the excess power generated during the day can easily be diverted the pool heating system to keep your pool warmer for longer periods of the year, effectively extending your swimming season. Utilising our state of the art power management accessories allow us to tap in to your rooftop electric solar to ensure the best use of any power being generated by your solar panels. Homeowners who can use solar energy when it’s produced, such as pool owners, can see the biggest benefit and recoup the cost of solar panels quickly.

According to Canstar Blue, the average Australian swimming pools cost about 49% more for electricity than homes without pools, with an average of $23 per week, and that doesn’t include the cost of heating the pool. With heating, the cost can be as high as $100 per week for gas heating and with electric heating the cost is even more. It is estimated that a 35,000 litre swimming pool will consume 8000 kilowatt hours of electricity per year.

By leveraging the efficiency of a heat pump which offers up to 16kW output for every 1kW of power input, the solar PV system need not be oversized and can comfortably provide heating for your pool into some of the cooler months, providing a warmer pool at just a fraction of the cost of a traditional electric or gas heated system.
