Solar Pool Heating
Swimming is one of the most popular summertime activities. For many homeowners, having a pool is a must have especially during the hot summer months. With basic care, maintenance, water, and electrical, you can expect between $1800 – $5000 per year in fees related to having a pool. That can be a bit pricey especially when optimal pool usage is around five months of the year. Here’s the good news, there are ways to maximize your pool usage and lower long term gas and energy costs. How? Three words… Solar Pool Heating!
What is Solar Pool Heating?
At its most basic level solar pool heating is a way to heat your pool with solar panels instead of gas. High-quality solar panels and collectors are used to heat pool water by circulating and heating it before returning to the pool.
Depending on the setup, there will be an automatic or manual valve that is used to divert water through collectors or pool filters based on settings and pool temperature.
Benefits of Solar Heating
Swimming has many health benefits including relaxation, stress relief and low impact whole body fitness. It’s also a great way to cool off on a hot summer day! By installing solar pool heating you’ll get to enjoy these benefits all year long.
