Heating

In order to make the most of your swimming pool, you’ll want to heat the water to an average temperature of 28°C.

The two most common ways of heating pools in the UK are through the use of Gas boilers and/or Air source heat pumps.

We can help with installation and maintenance of all Air source heat pumps, gas boilers & air handling units.

Our engineers are fully qualified to be working in the industry holding qualifications such as

• Gas Safe
• HWB1 (This is an extra qualification needed to work on Pool boilers)
• ISPE (institute of swimming pool engineers )
• Our electricians are also fully qualified
• CSCS specialising in hot works & plumbing

We will provide all the relevant certificates upon completion.

GAS BOILER INSTALLATION

Gas Boiler – 10 year warranty on all parts & labour

The most efficient method using a gas boiler today is to install a modern condensing boiler & heat exchanger.

These boilers can be hung on concrete/ brick walls or timber as shown in the images above.

Because we are Vaillant accredited we only fit Vaillant boilers and they warranty their boilers for 10 years when installed by us.

The larger the pool the higher the KW rating of the boiler and heat exchanger will need to be.

In order to commission these boilers we will need to test first that there is a sufficient size gas pipe already run to the installation area. If there needs to be adjustments to the gas supply pipe or gas meter this will be an extra cost.

AIR SOURCE HEAT PUMPS

Dura-Tech Pro Inverter – 2-year warranty on all parts & labour

We offer a range of Air source heat pumps. The best in the market is the Dura-Tech pro mainly because of the 2-year warranty they offer on all parts and labour.

This is something we have found to be paramount when deciding on an ASHP.

Many brands don’t offer a warranty on labour and only offer a 1-year warranty on parts.

In order to commission these units, we will need to test first that there is a sufficient size supply cable and breaker already run to the installation area. If there needs to be adjustments made this will be an extra cost.

The larger the pool the higher the KW rating of the ASHP.

Inverter heat pumps have the flexibility to vary the rotation speed of the compressor and the fan motor.

This allows it to use less energy to maintain the set temperature of the pool while also being able to heat up the pool faster at start-up. So you can enjoy further savings on your electricity bills.
