What Is the Ongoing Cost of a Solar Pool Heater for a Tampa Homeowner?
Many Tampa homeowners have heard about the benefits of choosing a solar pool heater for their home. But cost is a common concern, as it is for all things. However, the truth is that a solar pool heater is indeed a smart choice for Florida homeowners, as the ongoing cost for running it is essentially nothing.
Is Solar Energy Really Free?
In short, yes! Solar energy is a natural, renewable resource that can be collected for residential use. With a solar pool heater installed, you can enjoy the benefits of having a heated pool, free from ongoing expense.
How Does it Work?
A solar pool heater works with your existing pool pump to naturally heat the water using the power of the sun. The pool water is moved through a series of valves and directed to your solar collectors. The water then enters the solar collectors and is heated as it rises through to the top. The water is then returned to the pool, and the cycle repeats until the pool is heated to the desired temperature.
How Does a Solar Pool Heater Compare to an Electric or Gas One?
As far as ongoing expense is concerned, solar is clearly the MVP. There are different types of electric and gas pool heaters; depending on the type of heater, along with other factors like the size of the pool and preferred temperature, the monthly expense of running an electric or gas pool heater could range from $100 to $600.
