Benefits of Solar Pool Heating
Swim Season in Any Season
Living in Florida, a pool is the best way to cool down during the hot summer months. But what about the rest of the year? With a heated pool, swim season is year round. Installing pool solar heating extends your swim season to 10 months instead of the usual 3 to 4 months without it. Florida weather demands using pools year round for both fun and to escape the heat. Never step into a cold pool ever again by installing a solar pool heater.
The sun is an unlimited renewable energy source and by utilizing it in your home, you can steer clear of the rising cost of energy. The best part is that it can pay itself off in as little as 3 years!
Reduce your carbon footprint by going green and using solar energy. Solar is the cleanest form of energy and doesn’t require you to use your home’s electricity or a gas heater which releases harmful emissions into the atmosphere. Living in The Sunshine State means you’ll have access to solar energy year round.
Solar pool heaters run clean and don’t lose efficiency. Because of this, they require minimal maintenance. They also last longer than an electric or gas heater, anywhere between 20-30 years rather than 15-20 for other pool heaters.
If you currently have a gas or electric heater, you’ve probably heard the hum of the motor while you’re trying to relax. With a solar pool heater, you’ll be able to stay in peace and quiet while relaxing in your hot tub or spa.
How it Works
Knowing how solar pool heating works is important when understanding how beneficial it is. The great thing about solar heating is that it’s straightforward technology that works effectively that it keeps your pool heated almost year round.
Here’s how it works:
1. Through a discreetly placed system, your pool water is directed through a series of valves to your solar collectors up on your roof.
2. The pool water enters the collectors through the bottom and rises to the top through individual tubes, the disbursement of the water allowing your pool to heat quicker than with a gas or electric heater.
3. As the water gradually rises, it’s heated by the sun’s energy collected from the installed solar panel. The temperature of the water is determined by you using controlled settings.
4. The freshly heated water returns to the pool and your system repeats the cycle until your pool has been warmed to your desired temperature.
5. Temperature is maintained by keeping the water cycling through throughout your swim session.
“We recommend getting a solar pool blanket to trap in heat for use at night and to further reduce your energy consumption. You can find these online or in most pool supply stores”.
