In San Antonio and Austin, it’s hard to think why you would need a solar heating system for your swimming pool. With triple-digit temperatures and an abundant amount of sunshine, it’s hard to imagine the benefits solar heating can provide. The fact is, the benefits are many, including year-round swimming, increased energy efficiency and lowering overall pool costs.
1. Year-Round Swimming
While pool season is automatically extended due to San Antonio and Austin’s mild weather, imagine having the ability to swim year round! A solar heater allows you to swim during the fall and winter months, too, making your pool a 356-day backyard oasis.
2. Pool Solar Heaters Keep More Money in Your Pocket
With more days of sun than not, solar heaters are a perfect way to save energy – and money. Usually costing between $3,000 and $4,000, ENERGY.GOV estimates the system will pay for itself in just two to three years.
3. Pool Solar Heaters Are Better For the Environment
Because solar power is one of the cleanest forms of energy, installing a pool solar heater will make your carbon footprint much smaller. So, not only are you saving money in the long run and making your pool swimmable all year, you’re also being a champion to the environment and Mother Nature.
4. Pool Solar Heating Systems Require Minimal Maintenance
Using the sun as a power source requires minimal maintenance, and many pool solar heaters have the technology to program and let the system do the rest. Remember, it’s important to find a reputable, licensed contractor to ensure the system is properly installed.
