Many pool owners love their pools but hate their heating costs. Heating your pool using traditional pool heating systems can be cost-prohibitive, preventing you from enjoying comfortable water temperatures. Luckily, there is an alternative solution which makes heating your pool much more affordable. Solar hot water heater systems aren’t just for household needs- use solar heat to keep your pool at comfortable, even temperatures affordably!
Solar heating systems for your pool consist of a few components: the solar heat panels, the pump, the filter, and a flow control valve. The pump moves cold water from your pool through the filter to remove any debris. Then, the water is pumped through the solar heat panels where it is heated using the energy they absorb. When the water reaches the desired temperature, the flow control valve opens, sending the warm water back into your pool, raising the overall temperature. The process usually takes only a few hours of sunlight, depending on the pool’s location and the temperature you prefer.
Solar heat systems for your pool use little energy to operate. Without the use of fossil fuels to warm the water, the cost of heating your pool decreases dramatically. A solar heat system for a pool pays for itself with the savings you achieve over using traditional pool heating equipment. Depending on your system and your pool, a solar heating system can pay for itself in as little as two to seven years!
