Florida may be thought of as a tropical paradise, but it experiences cool winters just like the rest of North America. In the cooler months, you can still use your swimming pool if you have a pool heater installed, but using a pool heater can get expensive if you’re using your home’s standard electrical or gas system.
Thankfully, Florida is the perfect place to utilize solar pool heaters to keep your swimming pool comfortable all year round. At Solar Source, we offer multiple solar pool heating options to customers in Florida. We’re located in Largo, FL, but we serve places such as Pinellas Park, FL, and other cities Florida-wide.
We install Heliocol Solar Pool Heaters, which are the number-one solar pool heaters on the market. These solar heaters are efficient and flexible. The system is composed of a series of filters and pipes that lead up to the solar panels. Instead of using batteries to store solar energy, the system uses the solar panels to heat your water directly.
The water travels through the pipes and up to the solar panels on the roof, where it is dispersed through the pipes and warmed. Then, it travels back down to the pool.
You can also run the heater in reverse at night in order to cool your water down during really hot summers. By taking warm water out of the pool and giving it a chance to cool down, you can gradually cool the temperature of your pool.
When you contact us at Solar Source, we can visit your home to determine if a solar pool heater will work for you. We can also help you determine the best spot to put the heater and make sure that the roof is structurally sound to support the panels.
