As Australians, we love our swimming pools. Whether it’s a pool in the backyard, a lap pool on the balcony or a plunge pool in the garden, they add value to our homes and provide us with great places to relax. But the cost of heating these pools can be prohibitive – especially in Australia’s hot summer months.

Enter waste heat recovery systems. These systems are designed to capture and recycle the heat generated by our home’s appliances, such as refrigerators and air conditioners, to heat our pools. In theory, this sounds like an ideal solution – using free energy from existing sources to keep your pool warm and inviting all year round. But there are some drawbacks that you should consider before investing in one of these systems for your home.

The first issue is the cost of installation. Waste heat recovery systems require complex piping and plumbing work that can be costly and time consuming for even experienced professionals. The complexity of this kind of installation means that you may end up paying more than if you had chosen a traditional heating system for your pool instead.

Another potential problem is that waste heat recovery systems are not always reliable. They rely on your home’s existing appliances working correctly at all times, otherwise they won’t generate any useful energy for your pool heating needs. This means you could be left without heat when you need it most – during those scorching summer days!

Finally, waste heat recovery systems usually only provide enough energy to maintain a steady temperature in your pool rather than increasing it significantly over time – so if you’re looking for a way to quickly warm up your pool then this might not be the best option for you.

Despite these drawbacks, there is still much to gain from investing in a waste heat recovery system for your swimming pool. One major benefit is that these systems can offer significant savings in energy costs compared to traditional heating methods – in some cases reducing them by as much as 25%. And while they may not be able to increase the temperature significantly over time, they are perfectly capable of keeping it at an optimal level during both warm and cold seasons – saving you money all year round!

It also pays to consider the expertise available when selecting such a system for your home – particularly if you’re looking for something reliable and efficient over time. Euroheat Australia have been designing & constructing hydronic heating & cooling systems for over 30 years so their experience speaks volumes about what kind of service they can offer homeowners who choose them as their provider of choice!
