Tips From The Expert
If your Homeowner’s Association is paying a gas bill to keep your swimming pool heated, there may be an option to reduce that cost by installing a solar pool heating system on the roof of the club house or an adjacent patio cover.
The size and cost of the system would be determined by a number of factors, such as the size of the pool in surface area and a corresponding area on which to install the solar pool heating system; the distance from the installed area to the pool equipment; the comfort level in pool temperature requested by membership; and the length of season the membership would like to maintain swimming temperatures.
There are, of course, many solar pool heating entities that can offer an evaluation and a bid for such a system, and there are ways to compare the production output and value of each bid. The SRCC is one independent organization that rates the net BTU output on a variety of panel manufactures. Selecting a product by a manufacturer that has a proven history of performance is a good start as well.
FAFCO is the original manufacturer of solar pool heating panels in the United States, started in 1969 and based today in Chico, CA inside a custom-designed factory. Their exclusive dealer-installer is Revco Solar Engineering, the oldest, licensed solar contractor in CA (CSLB# 387219), founded in 1976.
