Going solar can be intimidating without help along the way. Fortunately for you, our team at Solar Pool Supply knows all there is to know about solar pool heating, we’re here to answer your questions. Below are some of the questions and answers we get asked most often.
Is Solar Pool Heating worth it?
If you’re interested in going solar but not sure whether it’s worth it to you, you need to ask yourself if saving money is worth it to you. You also need to ask yourself if swimming longer for less is worth it to you too. If you answered yes to either of those questions then YES, solar pool heating is a sound investment and worth it.
By installing solar pool heating you can increase your swim season by several extra months throughout the year with minimal costs added to your energy expense. Solar pool heating runs at little to no operational cost, saving you huge amounts of money every month and every year. The only energy source required to power your panels is your pool pump. Gas and electric heaters are massive energy hogs that cost a lot to run. Instead of paying hundreds of dollars to heat your pool for a little bit, you could pay significantly less to heat your pool for longer. So, if you’re interested in saving money and extending your swim season then yes, solar pool heating is worth it.
How does Solar Pool Heating work?
Solar pool heating is very simple! Water is pumped into your panels using your existing water pump. That water is pumped into the panels and circulated back into your pool. Over time the sun will heat your panels and in turn heat the water collected inside. Warmer and warmer water is circulated until your pool is heated and comfortable.
How long does it take for solar to heat my pool?
Heating times will depend on the time of year and where you’re located in the U.S. but generally it takes a few days for solar panels to initially heat your pool to your desired temperature. Once you’ve reached your desired temperature, it takes a couple of hours to heat your pool back up with solar. Solar is an efficient and cost-effective way to heat your pool.
How long do solar panels last?
Generally, solar pool heating panels will last upwards of 20 years. With proper maintenance and care your system can last a very long time. Because there are no moving parts with solar, maintaining a system is very simple.
Can I swim more with solar?
You can! Solar pool heating is the perfect way to extend your swim season. By harnessing the power of the sun, you can swim in a warm pool for roughly 8-10 months throughout the year. Depending on where you are in the U.S. will make a difference, but solar will typically add a few extra months to your swim season.
