Solar Pool Heaters

Heating an average pool for the swimming season uses about the same amount of energy as most homes require per year. The costs go beyond just monthly heating bills when you consider greenhouse gas emissions involved. A solar pool heater pays for itself quickly.

Solar pool blankets (pool covers) are the cheapest way to reduce heat loss and save energy. You can also make your own solar pool heater, using a simple pump and some black PVC piping.

Cost

A solar pool heating system will cost between $2,000 and $4,000, depending on size, model specifications and options (e.g. automatic controls). Since you are saving energy, you may qualify for government financing incentives .

Value

As with most solar power, the closer you are to the equator, the more energy you will get out of your system.

Almost anywhere in the world, a solar pool heater is a good investment.

No matter how much you think you know about solar, pool heating or electricity, we recommend that you choose a solar pool heating dealer.

System size and logistics

Typically, your solar collector should be at least half the square footage of your pool surface area. Have your collectors facing the sun. If you live in a more northern area, you will have one setting for your summer swimming fun. Those who live in warmer climes will need to adjust their solar panels with the seasonally moving su...

Solar Pool Heating Benefits

In many areas, especially where there is limited sun, solar pool heating is one of the most practical applications of solar energy. People around the world are catching onto this-even in Canada, solar pool heaters make up more than 10% of the pool heating market.

No matter what, your solar pool heater will save on your pool heating costs. In warmer areas, especially, it is inadvisable to heat with gas. Over a 15 year period, you could spend five times as much on heating with gas as you would with a solar pool heater.

Even if you 'hybridize' your solar heater with gas, it will still save you money.

Here are some more solar pool heating benefits, adapted from a Canadian guide to solar pool heating. Just think of how much more beneficial solar will be in Texas or Florida!

Solar extends your swimming season

Whether or not you have an existing heater, you can keep your pool warmer and open longer with free energy from the sun.

In most areas of Canada [and the northern United States], a solar heater used in combination with a solar pool cover can add two to four weeks to the beginning and end of the swimming season. You get a longer swimming season for free.

Solar equipment is durable

Solar equipment often lasts longer than gas or electric heaters. With proper yearly maintenance, you can expect fuel heaters to last seven to 10 years. Most gas heaters have a two-year warranty, and well-made heat pumps carry a two-year warranty with five-year warranty on the compressors. Solar panels have a minimum 10-year warranty and generally last 15 to 20 years or longer.

Solar requires less maintenance

Unlike gas and electric heaters, which should be serviced by a technician every year, a solar heater requires very little servicing. Again, that means less cost and less hassle for the pool owner.

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 f...
