Since about the 1970s-80s, people all around the world have been using Solar Collectors to heat their water for a number of applications including domestic hot water (for showers, laundry, grooming, and washing dishes), radiant heating through floor or baseboard heaters to space heat their homes, and even to heat their pools to extend the swimming season earlier in the spring and later in the fall.
Heating your pool is a luxury, but that doesnt mean that it should be so expensive that only the very rich can afford it. By using Solar Pool Heaters, the average American Household can heat their swimming pool for only a few hundred dollars, and without the high, and rising costs of traditional fossil fuels and heating sources like oil, natural gas, and electricity. Silicon Solar Inc carries a complete line of Solar Pool Heaters, available for every type and size pool in any location around the country.
For above ground pools, Silicon Solar carries two different pre-packaged Solar Pool Heaters, a 1 panel/40,000 BTU Solar Pool Heater, and a 2 panel/80,000 BTU Solar Pool Heater. If your pool needs a larger Solar Collector to heat the water due to its size, or your climate, you can add more Solar Collectors into the system for higher output and additional heat. For in-ground pools, Silicon Solar offers 2 different Pre-Packaged Solar Pool Heaters, a 1 panel/40,000 BTU Solar Pool Heater and a 2 Panel/80,000 BTU Solar Pool Heater. Solar Pool Heaters for Above and In Ground Pools begin at only $129 each.
These Solar Pool Heaters are easily installed and tie directly into your existing Pool Pump/Filter System. As for installation, Solar Pool Heaters from Silicon Solar simply roll out on your roof, or on the ground next to your pool and are ready to go, heating your pool within minutes of installation and setup. Here are some simple rules to use when choosing the Solar Pool Heater that is right for you.
