An Introduction to Solar Pool Heating Systems (2003)
This report was prepared by the Canadian Solar Industries Association and provides a basic overview of solar pool heating systems specific to Canada.
Benefits of using solar pool heating systems are explained in the report as well as advantages of solar vs. gas heaters and heat pumps.
The document gives five reasons why Canadians should use solar heating; Solar saves on pool heating costs, solar extends your swimming season, solar equipment is durable, solar requires less maintenance and solar energy is good for the environment.
A chart at the end of the report that shows that over 15 years the total cost for a solar pool heater is $3100-$5750 compared to $7,550-$22,500 for a natural gas heater.
