Algarve – Solar Swimming Pool Heating

Algarve – Solar Swimming Pool Heating

Algarve villa solar swimming pool heating survey in Santa Bárbara de Nexe, Algarve, Portugal.

In the coming months we will be be installing a solar swimming pool system to reduce the electricity bills.

Current actual spend (2016) 750 euros/month during the summer months and 400 euros/month during the winter months.

The hot tub will be heated by solar thermal panels as will the swimming pool.

A major contributor to the electricity cost being the swimming pool & hot tub. There is also an irrigation system at the property which runs for two hours in the morning and two in the afternoon, pumping well water. Some of the pumps draw 3 to 4 kilowatts per hour, this is also contributing to the high energy bills.

This post will be updated on a regular basis to show the investment together with bill comparisons to demonstrate the ongoing savings they will receive over the next 20 years for the solar heated swimming pool.


Addressing​ ​​you’re energy consumption & costs makes financial sense. Instead of renting energy you should own it by installing solar swimming pool heating. Once we have tackled the swimming pool heating cost we will then look to reduce the electricity bill with solar pv.
