Everybody loves swimming, However the swimming season typically lasts for only a few months during the summer and the monsoon after which the water temperature drops drastically making swimming very difficult. Heating a pool will make it operational throughout the year. This will help swimmers to be able to swim any time they want whilst the pool owners can increase their revenue by having the pool open all-round the year. Heating a pool is an expensive and complicated prospect. First it requires high initial investment and also considerable running cost. An efficient design will make a lot of cost savings. At ATC we strive to provide the best alternative catering the need of the clients . There are a lot of options available to choose from based on the budget of the client and the site conditions.
Options available for pool heating
- Plastic Collectors:These are the most popular pool heating solar collectors in the market. These are typically made from polypropylene tubes and donot have a glass glazing. These collectors are well known for their longevity since plastic is inert to the harsh pool chemicals. They are also renowned for their comparatively low costs.
- Copper Solar Collectors:Unlike the plastic collectors, these have glass glazing on them. This makes their heat yield comparatively higher than that of the plastic counterparts. To counteract the highly corrosive pool water laden with chemicals, a heat exchanger is introduced and the system acts as a closed circuit system, this greatly helps in the longevity of the system.
- Heat pumps:Heat Pumps are also popular pool heating equipment. They occupy very little foot print and utilize the heat present in the ambient air to heat the pool water. They can provide the heat output of up to 4 times that of the electrical input. For Larger pools they may be the only option available.
Heat pumps are an efficient type of water heater that extract heat from the air, water or ground to heat water. The most common type is air-sourced. A heat pump is a device that is able to transfer heat to one fluid at a lower temperature from another at a higher temperature. Heat Pump also used in Air-conditioning. Sustainable energy systems of the future will rely on two major principles: efficient end-use and efficient use of renewables. In this scenario, the heat pump is a brilliant invention which is beautifully adaptable for a multitude of applications relating to both efficient end-use and renewable supply. The energy source used by a heat pump is renewable energy from the ground, air, water and waste heat sources.
How does a heat pump work?
Heat pump technology uses the same mechanical principle as refrigerators and air conditioners to generate hot water. Unlike conventional electricity and fossil-fuel-fired water heaters, the heat pump takes heat from the surrounding air and transfers it to the water in the tank instead of heating the water directly. The heat pump absorbs heat from the surrounding air and heats the low-pressure liquid refrigerant in the evaporator. This causes the liquid refrigerant to vaporize. The vapour then passes through the compressor where the temperature and pressure of the refrigerant are raised. The high-temperature/pressure refrigerant then passes through the condenser where the heat is transferred to the water to be heated (with the help of a heat exchanger). The refrigerant condenses to the liquid state and then enters the expansion valve where the pressure drops and again moves into the evaporator and the cycle keep repeating. Heat pump efficiency arises from the fact that they use electricity to move heat from one place to another instead of generating heat directly.
Solar Pool Heating
Commercial Heliocol systems typically pay for themselves in less than 3 years, are maintenance-free, require zero additional maintenance cost and have a life expectancy of 20 years. On average, a 100-panel system will save 2,400 gallons of LP fuel per month.
Heliocol leads the solar industry with unsurpassed commercial investment protection. Warranties include panels, labor, parts and freeze protection. This extensive and unprecedented warranty has been serviced for more than 20 years.

How does Heliocol work?
At the most basic level, Heliocol solar pool heaters simply amplify the laws of nature. Heat from the sun will always warm the water in your pool to a certain extent. A Heliocol solar pool heating system enhances this natural effect, simply and efficiently extending your swim season. Heliocol solar pool heating systems have three basic components: a panel, a pump, and a filter. A pump, usually your existing pool pump, pushes water through a filter to strain leaves and debris. Water is then pumped into a Heliocol solar panel mounted on your roof, porch, fence, or any other location with good sun exposure (optimally south facing in North America). The water is substantially heated as it moves through the panel and it flows back into your pool, warming the water. Unlike solar water heaters for indoor use, solar pool heaters do not require a storage tank. Your pool provides all the storage required. As an added benefit, homeowners in hot climates can Heliocol solar pool systems to cool their pool in the summer months by circulating water at night, when air temperatures are lower.
