Swimming pools can dramatically improve a person or family’s lifestyle. They are an outlet for families to spend quality time together, they are a safe and fun place for kids to play, and they are a great excuse to have a neighborhood party. If your swimming pool is frequently too cold to swim in, then you are missing out on all of these great experiences. Thanks to SOLAR HEATING you can have the backyard lifestyle that you’ve always wanted without being burdened with sky high monthly heating bills.
Here are 5 Good Reasons to Heat Your Pool with Solar:
1. Solar Extends Your Swimming Season
A properly sized solar heating system will get you swimming earlier in the spring and later into the fall. Whether or not you have an existing heater, you can keep your pool warmer and open longer with free energy from the sun.
2. Solar Saves on Pool Heating Costs
Energy costs continue to rise. In the last two years alone, the price of natural gas has almost quadrupled. On the other hand, the sun’s energy is FREE, and more and more pool owners are taking advantage of this opportunity to save money and avoid future price increases.
3. Solar Equipment is Durable
Solar equipment often lasts longer than gas or electric heaters. With proper yearly maintenance, you can expect your natural gas fuel heaters to last seven to 10 years. Most gas heaters come with a two-year warranty, and well-made heat pumps carry a two-year warranty with five years on the compressors. Solar panels have a minimum 10-year warranty and generally last 15 to 20 years long.
4. Solar Requires Less Maintenance
Unlike gas and electric heaters, which should be serviced by a technician at the manufacturer’s suggested maintenance schedule, a solar heater requires only once a year check up. Again, that means LESS COST and LESS HASSLE for the pool owner.
5. Solar Energy is Good For the Environment
These days we hear a lot about the damaging effect that burning fossil fuels is having on the environment. Burning fuels releases nitrogen oxides that cause the formation of smog in urban areas. Urban smog, which is worse on warm and sunny days, affects people with respiratory problems such as asthma. Using solar energy instead of burning fossil fuels can help reduce this smog. Burning fuels also produces carbon dioxide, the main cause of climate change. Replacing a natural gas or propane heater with a solar heater could stop three to 10 tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere each swimming season. That’s about the same amount produced by operating your car for one year!
