How Pool Solar Panels Cut Costs To Heat Your Pool
Pool Solar Panels And A Warm Pool
First of all, thanks for checking out my exploration into pool solar panels.
This all started for me when I got disgusted with the size of my electric bill if I ran my pool heater. I was astounded by the increase in the cost! We were paying over $89.00 more per month to get into a pool that was still almost cold.
One day I was sitting on the pool deck when I overheard my neighbor telling his wife that the pool was too hot. I had noticed that he had a small pool solar panel on his roof with some pipes running down the side of his house near the downspout, but didn’t connect it to my problem until I hears him talk to his wife.
Pool Solar Panels Confusion
Three minutes later I was Googling pool solar panels. Fifteen minutes later I was seriously confused and overloaded with information about solar energy, solar panels, photo voltaic cells and the difference between solar water heaters and pool solar panels. I don’t know how you deal with information overload, but my solution was to pick up the phone and start calling the “experts” on google’s first page for pool solar panels. Mostly they didn’t market to my area and weren’t interested in talking to someone who wasn’t going to make them money. The two listings on page one I didn’t call were diy solar water heater and diy pool solar panels. I didn’t want a solar water heater, I wanted pool solar panels, and I didn’t want to do it myself. So I went to the phone book and called the contractors listed under pool solar panels. The costs estimates were intimidating and the time frame was almost two months out. This is when I got my first brain storm!
Learning About Pool Solar Panels
Remember the listing I didn’t check out on Google? The I still didn’t want to do it myself but how different can a solar water panels be from a pool solar panels? The prices for everything with the word “pool” in it were much higher than those for solar energy. So I started calling the listings for solar panels and solar energy panels. After one hour on the phone I realized that the people I was talking to for solar energy panel were the same people I was talking to for pool solar panels! While the prices were cheaper but the time frame was the same and their was no clear difference between the systems. I was even more confused and beginning to feel I wasn’t going to get pool solar panels without paying a lot of money. Finally one installer I was talking to asked why I didn’t make the pool solar panels myself. I just laughed, told him no way and went back out to my not warm pool to think things over. What I started learning that day about pool solar panels is why I’m writing these articles.
