Green Heating Alternatives For Your Pool And Spa
Many homeowners in the Englewood area have pools and spas. If you’re one of them, you know how expensive it can be to keep the water comfortable. But did you know green heating alternatives can dramatically reduce the cost of heating your pool and spa?
Geothermal is one of the most practical green heating alternatives because it relies on the the natural heat present in the earth or nearby bodies of water. It’s most efficient when installed in a well, lake or pond, because water is a quicker conductor of heat than earth. Although the system’s piping is installed in water, it doesn’t transfer that source water to your pool or spa. It simply absorbs the heat present in the source water and moves the energy to your pool. Once the heat is absorbed, the source water is returned to its place. The two fluids never actually mix.
Because the energy is naturally stored in the source water or earth, you won’t have to deal with high gas bills anymore. The only thing you’ll pay for is the electricity used to run the compressor and the system’s pumps. Even this cost should be low. Green heating alternatives like geothermal are capable of producing over three times the amount of energy they consume.
Geothermal enhances the experience of being a pool and spa owner in a variety of ways:
- It can cool your pool or spa as well as heat it with reverse-cycle technology.
- The system synchronizes with your pool pump and thermostat, so it’s not running all the time.
- Insulation reduces noise so your pool and spa time isn’t disrupted.
- An advanced scroll compressor raises efficiency even further and has a longer lifespan than a standard piston model.
- It outperforms all other heating and cooling systems, including air-source heat pumps.
- Geothermal systems can typically pay for themselves more than once over the course of their long lifespans.
