Solar pool heating has become increasingly popular for good reason: there are so many benefits! Solar pool heating is one of the best pool heating options out there, and it’s definitely worth it, not just because it’s the better pool heating choice for the environment. If you’re looking for a reason to make the jump into a solar heated pool, here are five:
1. You’ll save money
Solar pool heating is ideal for homes that desire a heating system that has minimal operating costs. The cost for the system and installation usually pays for itself within 1 to 3 years. You won’t be paying to run a pool heat pump because energy from the sun is free. Most of the time, solar systems can be hooked up to a pre-existing pool pump too, so you won’t have to make additional purchases.
2. They’re extremely reliable
Solar energy has been used for decades, not just for heating pools, but also for providing electricity and warm running water for homes and businesses. There are no motors or fans that you have to worry about breaking, and no heat exchangers that are in danger of corrosion, so there’s less moving parts at risk of letting you down. The materials used in each Techno-Solis solar pool heating system are also durable, weather-proof, and long-lasting.
3. They won’t disturb you
Most systems can be installed in a matter of hours, meaning you won’t have to wait around at home for days for the installation to be complete, and you can start enjoying your heated pool sooner. Unlike gas pool heaters, solar pool heaters don’t require in-ground plumbing, electric, or gas connections, so there’ll be no need to dig up your yard.
4. Maintenance is a breeze
With solar pool heating systems being so reliable, maintenance is extremely low. Your solar pool heater won’t short-circuit, rust, or become blocked by foreign particles as other pool heaters can. The biggest problem you will encounter with a quality solar system that has been professionally installed is a leakage in one of the pipes, which can be quickly repaired.
5. You can enjoy your pool all year
The most obvious reason to heat your swimming pool with solar is to enjoy it for as much as the year as you can. Generally speaking, solar pool heating will raise the temperature of the water up to 15 degrees warmer than the outside air.
