Although most people choose a heat pump to heat their pool, you can also use your central heating system. The two systems are often combined. This allows you to heat your pool with the heat pump in summer and switch to the central heating system in winter, as your heat pump will no longer be efficient below 10°C. So how do you heat your pool with your central heating system? Leisure Pools provides more information here.
If you want to enjoy nice, warm water in the colder months, say from September to May, you can heat your pool with your central heating system. Your pool can be connected to your central heating system with a heat exchanger. This literally exchanges heat between two circuits: the primary circuit and the secondary circuit. So how exactly will this heat exchanger heat your pool? Well, the primary circuit contains the water that is heated by your heating device (the boiler, for example) and the secondary circuit contains the water of your pool. The hot water of your central heating system flows through the heat exchanger, which transfers the heat to the pool water that is passed along the heat exchanger. So heating a pool using your central heating system is actually quite a feat of engineering.
Heating your pool with a heat exchanger offers a number of important benefits. Combining your boiler with a heat exchanger allows you to heat the pool water relatively quickly. At an outdoor temperature of 15°C, it can heat your pool water to 28°C in 24 to 48 hours.
If you want to enjoy a nice warm dip every now and then, pool heating is required. If you want to benefit from a heated pool all year round, it is best to heat your pool by connecting it to your central heating system. You can also combine this system with a heat pump.
