Solar Pool Heater Installation

Solar Pool Heater Installation

Service Overview

Installing a solar water heater for your home can extend the life of your conventional system and help reduce your utility bill. This type of system, known as Solar DHW (Domestic Hot Water), involves pumping water or a heat-transfer fluid from the tank to a roof-mounted solar collector to be heated by the sun. Depending on the type of system, directly heated water is available for immediate use or storage. In an indirect system, the heat-transfer fluid is used to heat the water.

Solar water heating systems are efficient and reduce the use of fossil fuels, minimizing both your energy costs and your environmental impact. As an added benefit, going solar can make you eligible for federal tax credits and other rebates and incentives in your area.

Solar Collectors

Our collectors are designed to be used in any environment. Our solar experts will help you select the option that best fits your needs and your budget. Solar collectors designed for domestic water heating (DHW) are made of glass, copper, and insulation. They are designed to quickly heat to high temperatures suitable for bathing, laundry, and dishwashing. However, solar hot water heaters are also adaptable for commercial facilities such as laundromats, medical offices, hotels or restaurants.

Solar Pool Heating

Pool heating technology requires thousands of gallons of water be heated to more moderate, comfortable temperatures, which are typically lower than bathing requirements. Thus, this technology is designed to circulate high volumes of water slowly and repeatedly through polypropylene collectors. Solar pool heating technology is similar to the water that is warmed in your garden hose when it sits in the sun; it therefore requires far fewer enhancements than other forms of solar energy. Advantages of our solar pool heating systems include:

  • Extending your swim season in any climate
  • Warmer water for night swims and younger swimmers
  • No moving parts and virtually maintenance-free equipment
  • 12-year full warranty and limited lifetime warranty

Pool Salt Water Chlorinators

Cunano Builders offers a salt water chlorination system to automatically balance and control chlorine levels in your pool, giving you and your family more time for swimming and less time maintaining your pool. Some of the benefits of a salt water chlorinator include:

  • Reduced eye redness and irritation
  • Cleaner, healthier water
  • Softer feeling on the skin
  • No handling chlorine
  • Low-maintenance equipment
  • Continuous cleaning
  • No manual shocking

POPULAR QUESTIONS

A solar water heating system pays for itself relatively quickly. Homeowners can expect a return on the investment of the solar system in less than 3 years.

All solar water heating systems feature two components: a solar thermal collector and a storage tank (reservoir). The solar thermal collector absorbs solar energy in the form of heat and transfers this heat to a storage tank for later use, offsetting the need for electrical or gas heating elements. This can be done using the water in the storage tank itself or indirectly using a heat transfer fluid and heat exchanger. Beyond this, the components and possibilities for system configurations are endless.

The total budget may vary as sizes of rooms are very different. For example, approximate budget for a basic bathroom renovation is from $3500 to $5000. If you need detailed calculation of materials and work, please contact our Customer Service Department.

Renovation project can be initiated by the clients. If you need to reconstruct your old house, a room or a basement, you need to appeal to us, approve the project and budget and we’ll start working.

A solar water heating system can greatly reduce the demand for conventional heating sources to be used, but may not be able to entirely replace your existing system. Depending on system size, hot water usage, climate, and other factors, solar water heating systems can provide up to 80% of energy needed for water heating on an annual basis.
What are the benefits of solar panels?
 
Solar panels offer a sleek, attractive design that can be installed on any type of roof. Open tube panels prevent moisture build up, keeping the roof surface dry. If you live in a region that experiences heavy wind or snow, solar panels are even weather-tested to handle harsh conditions. UMA Solar panels are eco-friendly, harnessing clean energy from the sun to heat your pool.
