Solar Pool Heaters for Sale
Solar pool heaters consist of large panels that sit on the ground or mount to the roof of a house. Water is pumped through a slew of channels that run through each panel, warming it with the heat of the sun before it’s circulated back into the pool.
When choosing the best solar pool heaters, there are a number of factors that will impact your decision. The type of pool you own is one of these factors. Solar pool heaters are designed for either in ground or above ground pools and some can work with both types. If you have a small above ground pool, a small solar pool heater may be all you need. Moreover, a large inground pool may demand a large solar heater that mounts to the roof of a home. In any case, it’s important to purchase a solar pool heater that is best suited to work with your pool type. There are three different types of solar pool water heaters: flat-plate, evacuated tube, and batch collectors.
Pool size is another factor that weighs in your selection process. The pool solar heater system must be large enough to capably warm the amount of water in the pool. Typically, the surface area of the solar pool heater should equal 50 to 100 percent of the surface area of the pool to effectively warm it.
In Canada, the pool solar heater you want is one that requires a surface area that is closer to 100 percent of the pool’s surface area because pools located in regions where it’s cooler or cloudier require this ratio. Solar pool heaters with larger surface areas are better able to extend the pool season by keeping the pool water warm even through early fall.
Solar pool heaters come in a variety of mounting options. Large solar pool heaters consist of panels that must be mounted to a structure, typically either a rack that sits on the ground or on the roof of a home. Most pool owners will buy installation kits for their pool solar heaters and even racks and repair kits that require a separate purchase. This will add to the overall cost of a pool solar heater.
A swimming pool solar heater’s ability to raise the temperature of the water is dependent on a variety of factors, including the heater’s surface area as well as how many hours of direct sunlight the heater receives on a daily basis. Because the sun is your energy source, on a cloudy day, a solar powered pool heater will have no effect on a pool’s water temperature.
Usually, a heater’s ability to affect the temperature of the pool water depends on the size of its surface area. A solar pool heater is best when it is sized properly. It can warm the temperature of a pool by as much as 15 degrees over a period of several days. The angle tilted and the direction towards the sun influence how quickly your swimming pool heats. This combined with heating from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., which is the strongest sunlight, makes for your solar pool heater operating at its highest efficiency.
Do solar pool heaters work? The answer in short, yes! Once you have factored in the type that best suits your swimming pool and the surrounding conditions, the sun is the most environmentally friendly and cost efficient way to heat your pool water.
