Solar pool heating systems are the most economical, and environmental friendly systems available that utilises free solar energy to heat swimming pool water. Solar panels are normally installed on the building's roof (not on thatched roofs), but ground level installations are also practical if enough space is available.
Heating your pool makes it an inviting place for friends and family. It gives people a reason to get together while giving you a higher return on your investment in the first place. If the pool is rarely used, it can seem like a waste of money. Not so if itís a warm and comfortable place to be.
Solar swimming pool heaters work by heating up water and transmitting it to the pool by means of the existing pool pump. The water in the pool is transmitted back and forth by means of the pump. In most cases, you do not have to spend extra money on getting a new pool pump or other equipment. Most solar pool heaters work with the existing pool equipment. Another advantage of solar pool heaters is that you can enjoy your swimming pool for much longer periods of time. This is especially true in colder climates, where most people have to close down their pools in the fall. With the use of a solar pool heater, you can open your pool earlier in the spring and close it later in the fall. You can maximize the use of the pool on cool but sunny days. You can use insulated pool covers to maximize heat retention in the pool as well.
