Solar in Florida…Really?
There is a big misconception among some people that Florida is always so warm you don’t need to heat your swimming pool. When you factor in the wind that is prevalent much of the time, bad weather, and seasonal changes, then it becomes apparent that this is hardly the case and swimming pools can use a little boost of heat from time to time in the Deltona and Volusia County areas. Because the local climate here is warm enough that swimming pools in the area do not need constant heat, then solar pool heating is a cost effective and inexpensive way of providing the extra heat your swimming pool needs once in a while. Solar Volusia is your trusted contractor for these green systems.
Affordable Swimming Pool Comfort
If you are like most people then you want your pool available and comfortable when it’s time to go swimming, swim laps or exercise in it. After all, swimming pools are meant to be used and enjoyed for the many activities that are done in them. Solar pool heating makes it possible to enjoy a warm and comfortable swimming pool even in the coldest of Florida months.
There are a lot of pools in the Deltona area that have electric or gas heaters attached to their swimming pools; although these are convenient, they have one big drawback and that is they are expensive to run. Solar heated pools are quite the opposite, and are a very affordable and green solution when it comes to swimming pool heating. In most cases, a person who installs economical solar pool heating will start saving money right away with the lower installation costs and then get continued savings throughout the time the solar heating unit is in operation.
Solar heated swimming pools really are the real deal when it comes to saving money on your utility bill without sacrificing comfort. At Solar Volusia, we have high quality solar power products that will not degrade two years later. We also provide these products at an affordable price.
How Does Solar Heating Work?
Volusia County residents have the luxury of having many days a year which are at least partially sunny and solar pool heating is a great way to take full advantage of that. They are a simple setup which takes no additional energy to run because they conveniently work off your already running swimming pool pump. The system works because the pool water circulates through a series of strategically located solar panels which are usually placed conveniently out of the way on your home’s roof.
The solar panels will collect the natural heat from the sun and return it back into the swimming pool; this can mean as much as 7 – 10 degrees of warmth on a typical sunny day. The system is very easy to setup and run too. All this can be done manually by simply moving a few valves near your swimming pool pump and filter, or can be done automatically by a more sophisticated system that uses temperature and timers to turn the system on and off. If the swimming pool gets too hot you can also bypass the solar panels completely during the day or even run them at night to actually cool the swimming pool water a little.
Believe it or not, swimming pools can get too warm to comfortably swim in, especially in the summer months. Solar pool heating is definitely easy to work with and gives you a lot of options.
Sizing and Installation
There are two main factors that determine the size of the solar pool heating system that you require. The first is the size of the swimming pool you are trying to heat. Secondly, you need to consider the amount of time the sun hits the solar panels you set up throughout the day; in scenarios where the solar collectors are in a place they do not get full sun all day it’s recommended to install more panels. Solar panel cost will vary depending on size but panels quite typically come in 2’x20’ sections. A free consultation from Solar Volusia always helps our Deltona clients to answer both size and cost considerations, and also whether the investment makes sense for them.
Solar pool heating installation is something that is best done by our trained technicians who know exactly how to install the system so you get the most benefits and ease of use out of it.
Additional Solar Pool Heating Benefits
One nice thing besides the energy savings with solar heated pools by Solar Volusia is the fact they are virtually maintenance free. They just require a spot check for leaks once in a while and to have the valves periodically checked to ensure proper operation. They also are highly resistant to the wear and tear that Florida salt air tends to do to things around your home; that can certainly not be said for other forms of pool heaters which are subject to advanced corrosion that makes costly repairs or replacement necessary.
Solar pool heat also greatly reduces your carbon footprint as it’s a great way to go green around your home for our Deltona solar clients. There is no large scale consumption of fossil fuels to run it and almost all the energy that is produced ends up in your pool in the form of heat. It is a great way to get the comfort you desire without harming the already much overworked environment.
This type of solar heating system can also be used to do other things too. A good example of this is that they can save you money by being used as a supplemental source to heat your home’s water also; this can really add up to a lot of money saved over a year’s time. Many contractors who install these solar pool heating systems can also perform such other installations as adding radiant barriers, installing water and air purification systems and installing other types of solar devices on your home too.
Florida Solar Incentives
It is important to remember that Florida also routinely offers incentives for solar-based applications; it is a great way to save not only on your energy bill but on your end of the year taxes too.
