21 Nov Important Points to Consider before installing Solar Pool Heating
Installing solar pool heating is a long term investment that will provide you and your family with a swimming season of 6-9 months depending on your location. This is approximately double the duration of an unheated swimming pool! Before you install solar pool heating, however, there are some important points to consider.
What size solar pool heating system do you need?
It is important that you seek advice when determining what size solar pool heating system suits your home and pool. While a smaller solar pool heating system may be cheaper, a larger solar pool heating system may be more effective and save you money in the long term by reducing costs associated with alternative pool heating solutions.
There are various benefits of installing a greater number of solar panels. For example, on overcast days, having more solar panels can increase the absorption of the Sun’s natural energy, leading to better efficiency and increasing your pool use.
How much time will it take to install a solar pool heating system?
While there are varying factors including the size of your solar pool heating system, and the number of installers working at your home, it is unlikely that your solar pool heating will take more than 1 day for installation.
What are the benefits of Solar Pool Heating compared to other pool heating options?
There are a range of reasons why solar pool heating systems are a great choice for your home and swimming pool. Some of these include:
- Supports the local economy
- High quality systems available that maintain aesthetic of your house
- Low maintenance
- Easy to operate
- Highly durable and fast repairs
What are the common problems with a Solar Pool Heating System?
