Solar Pool heating is not only less expensive, it pays for iteself in a few short years and typically has a life expectancy of 2-3 times that of a gas heater. This will save you tens of thousands over the years! (Take a look at our Investment page)
Every year millions of pools are contributing to greenhouse gases by heating their pool with fossil fuels. Make a difference to our planet by taking advantage of one of the largest renewable sources of energy available!
The more we use fossil fuels everytime we need an energy source the more dependent on them we become. With solar energy so abundantly available to nearly every pool owner for FREE, every pool owner should ask themselves why they are burning fuel to heat their pool.
Studies have shown that in the first 5 years a solar pool heating system adds its full cost to the value of your home. With a typical Return On Investment of less than 5 years it can easily be the best investment you ever make in your home!
Solar Pool Heating in Ontario will typically extend your pool season by a month on either side. With no additional cost to heat in these cooler months it immensely increases the value of your investment in your pool!
With a full warranty of 12 years and a life expectancy of over 20 years solar pool heating systems are highly durable and can withstand the harshest elements in nearly every climate. In comparison to a gas heater that often has a life expectancy of 7-10 years, solar pool heaters can often last 2-3 times the life of a gas heater!
If you have a gas or electric pool heater, you already know the benefits of having a pool heating system: more enjoyment out of your pool with a longer swim season, maintaining a comfortable temperature every time you take a dip, and adding to the value of your home. However, high energy bills may be keeping you from using your pool heater as often as you like.
Existing heaters can be used as a backup to solar in a Hybrid Heater
A hybrid solar pool heater could be the answer. Versatile by design, the Ecosun Solar Pool Heater will work in conjunction with your in-ground or above ground pool heater to save you money every season.
In a hybrid pool heating configuration, your swimming pool heater uses solar as the primary source of heat, and a gas heater or electric heat pump as a backup source. Since solar energy is free, this enables you to significantly reduce your operating costs vs. using a gas or electric heater alone. Also, by using less fossil fuel, a hybrid solar pool heater has less environmental impact.
Simple, Dependable, and Affordable
Most solar pool heaters are installed to operate automatically.
Solar pool heaters operate on a very simple concept: using the existing pump and filtration, pool water is diverted to the solar collectors where it is warmed by the sun before returning to the pool. Though systems can be installed to operate manually, the majority are installed in conjunction with an automatic controller. The controller, which is wired to two sensors which compare the pool’s temperature to available solar energy, then signals a motorized valve to turn the system on or off.
Installation is simple, and takes an average-sized crew about one day to complete. Collectors are generally installed on the roof, but can be placed anywhere that receives constant sunlight. Systems are mounted using heavy-duty stainless steel mounting hardware and our polypropylene-coated stainless steel strap.
A properly-sized and installed solar heating system will raise an unheated pool’s temperature 10-15 degrees Fahrenheit, extending (and often doubling) the length of the swim season.
Though the average cost of an installed system is comparable to that of a large heat pump, we can guarantee you will never get a utility bill from the sun. Once installed, a solar pool heating system will provide years of free heat, and can often pay for itself in as little as 3 years.
