23 Jan Benefits Of Rigid Solar Pool Heating Panels
According to the Climate Council, Australia’s leading climate-change communications organisation, the annual frequency of severe thunderstorms is likely to rise by 30% in Sydney, 22% in Melbourne and 14% in Brisbane by the end of the century. In their report on super-charged storms in Australia, they cite the 2010 hailstorm in Melbourne as one of the biggest such storm events in the last few decades. They also state that seven storms in Australia since that time have resulted in insured losses of more than $500 million.
Rooftop solar heating, of course, bears the brunt of these storms, and it’s not uncommon for the collectors to be damaged by hail or high winds. And don’t discount the impact of wildlife, either. Cockatoos have an unfortunate habit of chewing objects at random and, amongst other parts of houses, have been known to chomp on collectors.
The award-winning Heatseeker UniPanel® is the strongest panel system available in Australia. It’s hail proof, bird proof and resistant to extreme wind. That durability makes it the preferred solar pool heating system of insurance companies. The strength comes from the stabilised high density polyethelene (HDPE) composition, which is so tough it can even withstand repeated hammer blows.
But importantly, there’s no sacrifice to performance. Our rigid solar pool heating panels will provide exceptional heat gain of up to 10oC, which should allow you to swim for about half the year. The open flow channels and manifold design of Heatseeker UniPanel® allow a greater volume of water to be heated with minimal resistance. This ensures optimisation of energy output and minimises pumping power which results in reduced electrical running costs.
This really is a durable and efficient system that will go on heating your pool for years to come. If you’d like to know more, contact Supreme Heating on 1300 787 978.
