What types of heating are available to me?

Swimming pools can be heated by a selection of energy resources including gas, electricity, oil, ground and air source heat pumps, solar, wood pellet burners and even wind turbines. However, renewable energy is only suitable for outdoor pools, as indoor pools require dehumidification and a sophisticated range of systems.

One of the most popular heating systems for swimming pools is the heat pump, as it is effective and economical (should cost approx. £2.00 per day to heat depending on the size of the pool).

We recommend you take advice from a suitably qualified electrician or heating engineer for technical questions relating to your existing household electrical supply or capacity of existing gas or oil boilers to enable us to assess if your current services are sufficient to support your preferred heating choice for the pool.
