A swimming pool can eat into your expenses. It takes up, according to Your Energy Savings, 30% of your household energy bill. An in-ground pool uses more energy than your washing machine, clothes dryer and dishwasher put together. It is certainly an avenue you can explore for savings.
A pool is worth the investment because it does add resale value to your property and enhance recreational activities at home. With a solar heating system, you can secure both. Solar heated pools, using high-performance solar collectors, offer the perfect combination of minimum cost and maximum enjoyment.
Swimming by the Numbers
For starters, solar heated pools have minimal impact on the environment. Ausgrid data shows solar pool heating systems generate 40 kilograms of greenhouse gas emission, every week. The system reduces your carbon footprint by a significant margin in comparison to traditional heaters because it consumes less energy than other heating systems, allowing you to manage costs.
The same data estimates that weekly energy costs, based on typical market rates, are at $4 for off-peak periods and $16 for peak periods. In addition to being the least greenhouse-intensive heating system for your pool, solar heating provides the most affordable energy cost.
A Stroke of Genius Pool Solar & Spa’s solar pool heating costs, installation for an average sized pool is approximately $4,000. The price includes the pump or auto valve and automatic solar controller. In addition, we use only commercial grade, high-performance solar collectors, and provide fully automated systems. This lightens the load on maintenance and ensures longevity of your solar heating system.
We further help you minimise the cost of a solar heated pool by ensuring your roof area is suitable to install the solar collectors onto, which is ideally 100% of your pool surface area, and optimum orientation, to obtain maximum sunlight, for the installation.
A solar heated pool gives you the best of two worlds: a greater enjoyment at home and minimal cost. To know more about solar heating systems for your pool, call us today.
