Do You Know Just How Much You Can Save by Upgrading to Solar Pool Heating in California?
People who do not live in California frequently believe that the state’s residents do not require pool heaters. While a pool heater may not be essential in the middle of June, if a homeowner wants to use their pool all year, they should think about getting one.
However, there is generally one major stumbling block: the price. Solar water heaters are useful in this situation. For decades, we have specialized in solar at The Stanley Louis Company. Our customers are frequently surprised to hear how much money they may save by installing a solar pool warmer instead of a regular unit.

How much does it cost to run a gas heater?
While the entire cost of operating a gas pool heater can vary depending on a variety of circumstances, it can cost several thousand dollars per year on average. After you take into account the cost of purchasing the unit in the first place. Many families believe there is no other alternative but a freezing cold pool, so spending $2,000 for a more pleasant pool may seem exorbitant.
The solar pool heating process
Let’s have a look at how solar pool heating works before we get into the final cost. There are numerous parts to the procedure, but they are all automated, so all you have to do now is jump into the water and enjoy the pleasant temperature.
A solar pool heating system typically consists of a solar collector, pump, filter, and flow control valve. They all work together to heat the pool water without having the negative environmental impact that a gas pool heater would have. After passing through the filter, the water is fed into the solar collector. It is then reintroduced to the pool after being heated there.
Installing and maintaining a solar heater
The cost of a solar pool heater, of course, varies substantially from one model to the next. It will be more expensive to pick a glazed option than an unglazed alternative. The good news is that in California, glazed units are rarely required because they are only required when temperatures fall below freezing. The overall cost of the system will vary depending on the size of your pool, the temperature you desire, the amount of sunlight you receive, and other considerations.

According to Department of Energy estimates, the average solar pool heater may pay for itself in decreased energy expenses in as little as two years and save homeowners thousands of dollars each year in the future.
