Swimming Pool Heaters, Spain
Advasol offers both solar pool heating and air source heat pump systems to extend your swimming period from May-October or provide year round swimming options.
We only install quality units such as Astral, Calorex, Duratech or can design solar systems (Soladur/Solahart/Heliocol) to extend your swimming season. We also offer a range of budget air source heat pumps, highly efficient and with a 3 year warranty.
OUR NEW RANGE OF HEAT PUMPS; WITH LOW RUNNING COSTS AND IN A RANGE OF QUALITIES.
The majority of heat pumps available will offer a COP of around 5-6, however our heat pumps are capable of delivering up to 16.2! The higher the COP, the lower the running costs!
This means that per 1 kW of electricity consumed, you regain up to15 kW of heat free of charge.
Due to the high return, it is an energy-efficient solution to enjoy a pleasant swimming pool temperature all year round. The surface area of the pool and the water volume that needs to be heated will determine the size of your heat pump. Also it is important to take into account the positioning with respect to the sun, wind exposure and a pool cover is essential to retain heat and limit evapouration.
Always install your heat pump outside so that the air extraction flows freely. Also, many of our models can be operated from an APP on your phone
meaning you can ensure your heater is ready for use without needing to physically be at your property or relying on your gardener to switch it on!
Installing a pool heating system will ensure you maximise the benefit of owning your pool. If you rent your property as a holiday let/rental, we have found many of our clients have increased winter bookings dramatically by offering a pool heating option to their guests and making a charge for daily to their guests.

Air Source Heat Pumps
How do they Work?
Air Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the surrounding air.
Heat Pumps are an environmentally friendly method of heating your pool.
Operating in a similar way to your refrigerator or air conditioner (only in reverse)
they extract the latent heat from the air and transfer this heat to the pool water.
Air Source Heat Pumps tend to operate more efficiently at steady warmer air temperatures’.
It is possible for an air source heat pump however to extract heat from air at temperatures as low as minus 15°C.
A pool cover is recommended for use with your air source pool heater - this will ensure greater heater efficiency, limit water loss and evaporation and save money on chemicals. A pool heater, on average will cost around 2 euros per day to run for a standard 8m x 4m pool. Please note, however, that it is quite a complicated equation to provide an accurate cost per day as changes in ambient temperature, wind levels, electricity prices can affect the average daily cost.
Efficiency & Running Costs?
One of the key advantages of an Air Source Heat Pump is that it is capable of delivering much greater energy than it consumes; thus making heat pumps more efficient and cost effective compared to other hot water generators. In otherwords for every euro of electricity consumed, your heatpump from Advasol can produce up to 16.2kW of electricity free of charge. Óur budget range can even produce up to 10kW´s free of charge during the summer months!
It is very difficult to calculate exactly how much a pool heater costs to run. The reason for this is that there are so many variables which can effect it´s efficiency such as; Altitude, ambient temperature, positioning, it´s consumption (COP), electricity prices and if the pool has a good solar thermal cover to limit heat loss, evapouration etc. We will be able to tell you how many kW hours your pump will take to hear your pool and the kW hours to maintain with your quotation
Sizing your pool heater?
One of the most common ocurrences we find is that pool heaters have been undersized for our client´s pool heating requirements. Whilst the purchase price of lower consumption units may be cheaper initially, the running costs will be a lot higher. Your heater will need to work far harder and longer to heat the pool therefore the cost of running will be greater. We will be delighted to advise on the correct pool heater size based upon your needs ie; year round or extended swimming period (May- October).
In order to correctly size you heat pump, we establish the total cubic metres of water to be heated. Then we assess your requirements, ie; if you require year-round heating or seasonal - May-Oct. We then consider the aspect of your pool and it´s orientation and take into consideration the pipework required so calculate potential heat losses.
Solar Pool Heating
How does it work?
Solar powered systems are a completely free way to heat your pool.
Most solar pool heating systems include the following:
A solar collector -- the device through which pool water is circulated to be heated by the sun
A filter which removes debris before water is pumped through the collector
A pump which circulates water through the filter and collector and back to the pool
A flow control valve - either an automatic or manual device that diverts pool water through the solar collector.
Pool water is pumped through the filter and then through the solar collector(s), where it is heated before it is returned to the pool. In warmer climates, the collector(s) can also be used to cool the pool during peak summer months by circulating the water through the collector(s) at night.
Some systems include sensors and an automatic or manual valve to divert water through the collector(s) when the collector temperature is sufficiently greater than the pool temperature. When the collector temperature is similar to the pool temperature, filtered water simply bypasses the collector(s) and is returned to the pool.
A pool cover is highly recommended when the pool is not in use.
Ideal for extended swimming period
However, it is unlikely that a solar pool heating system will be efficient enough during the late Autumn and Winter, early Spring months to adequately heat your pool year round. Whilst completely free to run, during the last few years on the Costa-del-Sol we have experienced inclement weather and we only recommend this system for extended swimming.
Technology & aesthetics
Solar panels positioned on a roof are vulnerable to high winds and are prone to leakage, however recent developments in manufacturing now alleviate the leakage problem by offering a flexible style panel. Additionally, advancements now allow the solar panels to be offered in a range of colours such as terracotta to match with your roof and therefore more asethetically pleasing. Please note, in the case of terracotta coloured solar panels, the efficiency is not quite as high as a black panel due to reduced absoportion because of colour.
