If you have a swimming pool in the UK, it’s pretty much guaranteed that you’re going to want to have it heated. Whether indoors or outdoors, swimming in an unheated pool for most of the year is unpleasant and, indeed, often impossible. Therefore, finding an effective heating solution that can keep the water warm and comfortable whenever you want to take a dip is key.

It makes sense that you want to make the most of your investment in a swimming pool, therefore you’re going to need to find the most cost-effective yet efficient way of warming the water to a suitable temperature. However, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to swimming pool heating systems. Depending on your requirements, adding a heating system to your pool may be a simple process. 

But in other cases, a far more complex system may be necessary. As there are several options when it comes to heating swimming pools, getting professional advice is essential to ensure you’ve made the best possible choice for your requirements. 

How Can Swimming Pools Be Heated?

Not so long ago, heating swimming pools was viewed as simply a luxury, yet thanks to the latest technologies, a heating system is now a standard part of most swimming pools. 

There are several different kinds of heating system to choose from, each of which best suits different needs. For example, solar heating is one option, but in the UK it isn’t going to be a very effective one. Solar heating requires a hot climate to keep the water at a suitable temperature for swimming, and unfortunately, here in the UK, the climate rarely complies in this regard. 

Other options include heat pumps, which move water into the pump through the filter system. Heat pumps are quite economical, efficient, user-friendly, eco-friendly, and durable, but they take a long time to heat up the water which often makes them a poor choice for domestic pool owners. 

Heat exchangers and boilers are other possibilities to heat your pool. Heat exchangers allow heat from one liquid to pass to another liquid without allowing them to contact each other directly or mix together. This allows the heat to transfer without any fluid being transferred simultaneously. 

A heat exchanger is an economical and energy-efficient way to maintain a suitable water temperature. Heat exchangers and boilers are the most common option for heating pool water in the UK. 

The Cost Of Heating Your Pool

One consideration you’ll need to keep in mind is how much it’ll cost to heat your swimming pool when deciding which system to invest in. 

Again, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. The cost of heating any pool depends on its size, shape, location, and heater type. A professional company specialising in pool heating systems will be able to give you the best advice on this subject.

Can I Get A Bespoke Heating System Made For My Pool?

Often, when you invest in a swimming pool for your property, you want a custom-designed solution for your space. Many people having a pool installed want it to meet their exacting requirements in terms of size, shape, depth, and features. As a result, many swimming pools have their own unusual designs that can make them trickier to heat and maintain. 

Since all swimming pools are different, it makes sense that all pool heating systems should be different too. This is why investing in a bespoke heating system makes good sense. After all, if you have a bespoke swimming pool, you should have a bespoke heating system as well!
