Solar Pool Heating
Why is solar pool heating the best investment you can make to heat your swimming pool? Well, aside from the energy tax credits that are available and the fact that most installations pay for themselves in the first couple of years, it is the most efficient way to heat your pool and extend the swimming season.
If you've ever turned on a garden hose that's been sitting in the sun and you feel that heated water move through the hose then you're already a solar expert. Yes, you can roll out a bunch of black plastic pipe and hook it up to your pool and heat it that way. But, for a little more cost you can hire Bobcat & Sun to install a professional system that will heat your pool for years.
Most pool heating occurs from Memorial Day through Labor Day. The sun is high in the sky and overnight freezing temperatures are infrequent. You don't even need to point the collector array to the south. We have arrays facing east, west and even north and all perform quite well due to the high, overhead location of the path of the sun during the swimming pool season. Draining the solar collector array for the winter is critical so we install a winterizing kit for every application.
