Solartherm Solar Heating System
The Solartherm Panel is enclosed in an Anodised Marine Grade Aluminum Box and covered by a hail resistant Polycarbonate sheet, making it a durable and low maintenance system. Heat losses from the wind are kept to a minimum.
Water is re-circulated from the pool to the Solartherm Panels by a booster pump. The Solartherm Panels absorb the solar energy from the sun into the water and return the heated water back to the pool, thus raising your pool temperature. A specially designed Solar Controller will activate the booster pump only when there is enough radiant heat from the Sun. This ensures the Systems’ energy efficiency and running cost efficiency.
In addition, the Solar Controller will also ensure the Solartherm Panels will be protected in all seasons of the year. You can also cool your pool by running the system at night to reduce your pool temperature.
One Solartherm Panel will heat about 7 to 8 square metres (sqm) of your pool surface area and this will vary depending on locational factors. If you wish to achieve a higher pool temperature, additional Solartherm Panels can be added to your current system (subject to roof space) at a later date, as the Solartherm Panels are modular. Because of the unique design of the Solartherm panel, the panel can be installed in a vertical or horizontal position.
In the event that you wish to move to another property, the Solartherm Panels can be dis-assembled and re-assembled in your new location.
