Solar pool heating systems can be
found throughout the U.S. and world at places like
military bases, recreation centers, homeowner
associations, water parks, campgrounds, universities.
Where ever the geographic region, months of pool heating
will be added without the expense associated with full
time use of fossil fuel heaters.
Solar pool heating systems typically pay
for themselves in three to five years, are
maintenance-free, and have a life expectancy of 20 years
or more. And of course the price for solar heat will
always remain the same -- free.
A fully sized solar pool heating system
requires about one square foot of solar panel for each
square foot of surface water. Many times the panels are
installed on a south or west facing roof, but other
mounting options are also available. The desired pool
temperature is programmed into an automated controller,
and sensors work together to communicate to the
controller when to turn the system on or off, and it can
even be used at night to cool pool water in excessively
warm summer temperatures.
When shopping for a solar pool heating system, it’s
important to evaluate the standard manufacturer’s
systems are specifically designed to prevent moisture
from being trapped under the panels and to avoid “lift”
in high wind or hurricane conditions. Mounting systems
provide for minimal roof penetrations.
