Solar Pool Heating in Port Charlotte, How do you heat your pool?
Want a heated pool without the extra energy expense? A cold swimming pool often goes unused, and offers no return on investment. Solar pool heating systems can save you money, enhances the enjoyment of a swimming pool and adds value to your home. A properly sized system with a life span of 15-20 years can actually pay for itself with energy savings in 2 to 3 years.
Pool heating is a very good solar application. Pool systems usually use simple unglazed plastic collectors. The pool itself is the thermal storage for the system, and the pump you already use for filtering your pool’s water will also circulate water through the solar collectors.
The major advantage of these systems is that because sunshine is free, they have no operating cost. Another plus for environmentally-conscious pool owners is that solar energy is renewable and non-polluting, so these systems also reduce your greenhouse gas emissions.
