Frequently Asked Questions on Solar Pool Heating with Solar Lights Inc.

Are you considering harnessing the power of the sun for your pool heating needs? Solar Lights Inc., located in the sunny city of Ocala, FL, offers efficient and eco-friendly solutions to maintain your pool’s optimal temperature. Understanding the benefits and workings of a solar pool heating system can seem daunting, so we’re here to address some of the most frequently asked questions.

How Do Pool Solar Systems Work?

A solar pool heating system uses a series of solar panels, which act as a solar collector, absorbing sunlight and converting it into usable heat. The system circulates pool water through these solar panels where it is warmed by the absorbed heat from the sun, then returned to the pool. This process is repeated until your pool reaches the desired temperature.

Will My Solar Pool System Work at Night and With Downcast Weather?

Although solar pool heating systems rely on sunlight, they can maintain your pool’s temperature efficiently when it’s overcast or at night. The heat accumulated during the day is sufficient to keep your pool warm. Nevertheless, if you require consistent heating during extended periods of inclement weather or overnight, Solar Lights Inc. can help pair your solar pool heater with a traditional swimming pool heater, creating a perfect, energy-efficient blend.

 Are There Tax Incentives Available for Solar Pool Heating in Florida?

No, unfortunately no State or Federal tax incentives or rebates exist for solar pool heating. However, Florida’s legislature has acknowledged that solar energy utilized to heat pools offsets electrical usage therefore there is no sales tax on solar pool heating systems. In addition, solar pool heating systems will not increase the assessed value of your home, so your property taxes will not go up even though you are adding value to your residence.

Can I DIY My Solar Pool Heating System Installation?

While some homeowners may consider a DIY installation, we highly recommend professional pool heater installation. Installing a solar pool heating system requires specialized knowledge and skills, not just for optimal operation but also for safety and warranty considerations.

What Kind of Maintenance Is Required for A Solar Pool Heating System?

One of the many benefits of a solar pool heating system is its minimal maintenance requirement. An annual check-up is generally sufficient, and this service is included in Solar Lights Inc.’s comprehensive maintenance programs.

 What Kind of Roofs Can Solar Pool Heating Panels Be Installed On?

Solar panels for pool heating can be installed on a variety of roof types – including but not limited to, tile, metal, and shingle. Solar Lights Inc. offers custom designs and installations to ensure your solar panels are aesthetically pleasing and blend with your home’s design.

Can I Use My Solar Pool Heating with An Electric or Gas Heater?

Yes, a solar pool heater can be used in conjunction with an electric or gas heater. This is known as a hybrid system, and it’s a great solution for those wanting pool use in the colder months of Dec.-Feb or who have really large pools or extreme shade situations that need additional heat support.

Will I Need to Change or Upgrade My Existing Pool Pump Or Equipment?

Generally, most existing pool pumps and equipment are compatible with a new solar heating system. However, as rare as it is, each situation is unique, and our team at Solar Lights Inc. can assess your specific needs during our free home consultation.

How Long Will a Solar Pool Heating System Last?
