A swimming pool is a classic California luxury. Among the tasks of owning a pool is maintaining a comfortable water temperature, and this can be a significant challenge during the extreme heat of a Sacramento summer. While this year’s season started off noticeably mild, current reports indicate that the upcoming months may change that. Thanks to the Heliocol solar pool heating system, however, there’s a solution that is not only efficient and eco-friendly, but also helps cool your pool’s temperature thanks to the Delta Breeze.
Turning a Pool Heater into a Pool Cooler
The Heliocol solar pool heating system is designed to harness the sun’s energy to maintain a comfortable swimming pool temperature. During the cooler months of the year, the system captures solar energy and uses it to heat your pool water, extending your swimming season well into autumn and even early spring. But what happens during the summer months when the California sun relentlessly beats down, causing pool water temperatures to rise beyond comfortable levels? Surprisingly, this is where the Heliocol system shines in a completely different way.
In the evening, as the scorching sun subsides, the Sacramento Valley is blessed with cool delta breezes that sweep over rooftops, carrying away the day’s heat. This common nighttime occurrence creates an additional benefit of Heliocol solar pool heating systems. These breezes cool down the Heliocol solar panels installed on your roof. Circulating pool water through the panels in the cool nighttime air releases heat, lowering the water’s temperature. That leads to a refreshing plunge the following day.
Natural gas or electric heaters simply don’t offer this additional cooling benefit. The innovative design of the Heliocol system, originally intended to increase water temperatures, can also work in reverse to cool your pool during the warmest months of the year.
Why Choose Solaron and Heliocol?
The Heliocol solar pool heating system is not a typical DIY project you’d pick up from a local hardware store. As the leading contractor for Heliocol installations in California, Solaron has years of experience installing these systems. Although Heliocol has an impressive 12-year warranty, many pool heaters (or coolers) installed by Solaron still function optimally well beyond their warranty period.
Of course, there are other ways to cool down your swimming pool, like installing shade structures or purchasing specific cooling systems. But these methods require more time, equipment, and money before you see a benefit. With a Heliocol system already installed, all that’s needed is to make sure the proper flow of water is going through the panels during the night. The system takes care of the rest.
If you’re ready to enjoy more out of your swimming pool experience, Solaron is ready to help you take the plunge into a new era of pool temperature control with Heliocol. If you already have your system installed, we’re happy to go over the guidelines with you.
