Heating pool water in the summer can easily cost as much as heating
a house in the winter. Solar pool heat is extremely cost effective
when compared to the lifelong escalating costs of heating a pool
with fossil fuels. Energy isnt going to get cheaper over
Solar pool heating uses inexpensive and rugged unglazed collectors
which are very efficient at moving heat from the sun into your
Significant greenhouse gas reduction results from this method
of pool water heating. Emissions saved equal those produced by
operating an average automobile for a year.
How it works
The system is sized for your particular pool and site conditions.
An average system includes six or eight 4 x 12 collectors. The
collectors are large unglazed mats or panels which are installed
on a nearby roof or on the ground. Sensors are placed in the water
and on the array of collectors to determine when heat is needed
and when it is available.
When heat is needed and available, a motorized valve diverts pool
water to the collectors. A large volume of water is warmed by
a few degrees by each pass through the array. When the water is
warm enough, the valve closes and water returns to the pool.
We have a network of installers that can facilitate professional
installation of your system. Many systems can be installed by
the handy person with some extra time on their hands.
Introduction to Solar Pool Heating Systems
Solar collectors capture free energy from the sun and use it to heat your
pool. They can extend your swimming season and reduce monthly fuel bills,
without depleting non-renewable resources such as fossil fuels.
