Learn About the Eco-Friendly Features of Solar Pool Heaters 

Solar pool heating systems are made up of four main parts: a solar panel or collector, a filter, a pump, and a flow control valve. Each one of these pieces works together to generate heat for your pool or spa from solar energy, rather than electricity. As pool water is pumped through the filter, it is then transported to the solar collector for heating, and then returned to the pool. This is an eco-friendly, cost-effective, and sustainable method for heating large volumes of water in a pool or spa – which is much more cost-effective than an electric pool heater. Here are some other eco-friendly features of solar pool heaters:

Know How to Choose the Right Solar Heating System

When you contact our team to discuss installing a solar pool heating system, we’ll walk you through your options thoroughly, so you can make an informed decision. There are a number of factors we’ll need to consider when choosing the right solar heating system:
Solar resources
We will need to know how much sun reaches your pool or spa and how many hours a day the sun hits those spots.
Then, we’ll determine the necessary efficiency of your solar swimming pool heating system. We do this by calculating the thermal performance rating of the Heliocol solar collectors.
Next, we’ll need to consider the size of your pool or spa. We’ll also consider the length of the swimming season, the average temperatures in your area, your average desired pool temperature, and whether you use a pool cover. 
We will also consider the cost of each type of solar heating system and whether that fits into your budget. 
We can mount the Heliocol solar pool heating collector on your roof or anywhere near the swimming pool or spa. We’ll find a spot with the proper location and determine the optimal orientation and tilt, so it gets maximum exposure during the day.
Installation permits, codes, and regulations
Finally, we’ll consider the local ordinances, building codes, and regulations in your area and determine if we need to get permits.
