Hydronic Pool Heating System: A Cost-efficient Way to Water Heating

by Ascot Hydronic Heating hydronic heating services

Hydronic heating is an ideal solution for water heating in swimming pools. It provides a constant source of warmth by pumping warm water through closed tubes. Heat is radiated to the water through these tubes. In swimming pools, the under-floor heating system is installed to distribute this warmth throughout the property.

The hydronic heating system provides many benefits that set it apart from other heating solutions. First, it radiates heat evenly and eliminates the possibility of cool spots within the pool. It creates a pleasant temperature that is comfortable on the skin. Moreover, the installation cost of a hydronic pool heating system is usually low. Plus, it requires lesser operational cost and it is easy to maintain. 

By making use of underfloor heating, the hydronic pool heating system works as an efficient heat radiator within your swimming pool. No matter how chilly the weather is, it lets you enjoy the swimming pool all year round. 

·         Advantages of the pool heating system

1) Heat the entire swimming pool in lesser time

2) Aesthetically pleasing due to fewer equipment

3) More cost-efficient and easy-to-install than the traditional heating solutions

4) It is easy to retrofit the hydronic pool heating system in an old house.

·         Components of the Hydronic Heating System

The hydronic pool heating system comprises five major components that are mentioned below:

1) Boiler- For heating the water, a boiler is used. The boiler does not boil the water; rather, it heats it up to 54 degrees Celsius. When the level of water is reduced in the boiler, it is automatically filled from the pipe.  

2) Expansion Tank- This tank stores the extra volume of water created due to heating.

3) Centrifugal Pump- It is used for circulating the heated water from the source point to the terminals located in the swimming pool.

4) Air Separator- It is used for separating the air trapped in the heating circuit.

5)  Air Vent- Located above the air separator, it is used for removing the air from the system.

For heating water in the boiler, electricity, gas or oil is used. The hydronic pool heating system circulates heated water through the swimming pool’s bed by using centrifugal pumps. Once used, the cold water is returned to the boiler via a recirculating system. The heat from the water is then radiated to the swimming pool by using terminal units. To increase the surface area between the radiator and air, terminal tubing is used. The hydronic pool heating system works by heating the water near the swimming pool bed. The hot water rises up and cool water settles down. In this way, the entire water within the swimming pool is evenly heated.

·         Installation and Maintenance of Hydronic Pool Heating System

For the proper installation of a hydronic pool heating system, you should rely on a qualified engineer or an experienced company. After the installation of the system, you should operate it well as per the given guidelines. And, in case of any technical issue, you should call a technical expert. Before hiring as a technician, you must look for a valid license.

Conclusion- A hydronic pool heating system is an affordable, aesthetically pleasing, and time-savvy tool for heating water in the swimming pool. For heating, it can use electricity, gas, or natural oil. This system comprises only a few components which are easy to install and maintain.
