Benefits of Solar Pool and Spa Heating

Posted on: March 3, 2011

Having a pool is a luxury that most people wish they could afford. However, pools and spas that rely solely on use of traditional heating equipment can become expensive to keep warm, especially on a year-round basis. Solar heating allows property owners to keep pool and spa water at a comfortable temperature without using so much energy. This eco landscaping concept translates into a number of benefits for consumers.

Reduced Carbon Footprint

In San Diego, we enjoy sunny weather most days of the year. So why not take advantage of the power of the sun and use it to heat up your pool and spa? Solar heating panels can be placed on the roof of your property or another area that is in full view of the sun. As water filters through the solar panels, the water gradually warms up. Instead of using gas and electricity to heat your pool, you let the sun do the work, reducing your strain on the earth’s resources.

Decreased Energy Bills

Homeowners that have solar panels installed in their homes can expect a decrease in their monthly utility bills because they are not using traditional energy sources to keep pool water warm.

Warmer Water Temperatures

Solar heating can get water to the comfortable 70-degree range, making your pool more inviting to you and your guests.
