Choosing to add a solar pool heating system to your swimming pool can enhance your satisfaction with your pool long term. Main reasons for adding solar collectors to your swimming pool include affordability, environmental awareness and concerns and being able to swim much longer (almost doubling the swim season in Southern California).
Financially a solar pool heating system just makes sense when you are doing a swimming pool remodel. Having your pool usable for a longer period pretty much cancels out any additional start-up cost you may have. And, since the sun is “free,” after the first year you’ll be shocked at how much lower the cost of maintaining your pool is on a yearly basis. Ask us about past projects we’ve done and the significant savings our clients have seen after installing a solar pool heating system.
Another important aspect is that of environmental stewardship. In terms of fuels, solar pool heating is chemical free and “clean” and in some cases qualifies for conservation rebates. While “green” is not a word you’d want associated with your Southern California swimming pool water, when it refers to being environmentally conscious, it can be a very good thing and create impactful pool design.
One last benefit is that while your Southern California swimming pool may warm up nicely with the help of a typical pool heater many months of the year, it’s not consistent. During the spring and fall it can be quite expensive to keep your pool warm enough to enjoy. Since part of the joy of having a swimming pool is being able to use it when you want to, installing a solar pool heating system makes sense as the system will typically keep your pool about 10 degrees above “normal.”
