How to Install a Hot Tub Solar Heater How to Install a Hot Tub Solar Heater

Nothing beats having a nice hot tub filled with hot water, however did you know that by installing a hot tub solar heater, you can enjoy the moment even further? There is no doubt that everyone loves getting into a hot tub and just enjoying the heat and feeling the relaxing feel of the jets as they pulse over our arms and our legs.  What could possibly be bad about this you might be asking yourself? Well the biggest problem comes from the temperature of the water itself and the amount of money that you are going to invest into keeping the water heated so that you can enjoy those late night deeps even though there is two feet of snow on the ground. 

The Benefits

The biggest benefit from having a hot tub solar heater installed is actually comprised of two parts. The first is that you are now going to be able to turn down the temperature gauge on the hot tub itself. This is due to the fact that the solar heater is going to draw its energy from the rays of the sun and heat the water itself. This means that you are going to be getting the same temperature water but you are going to be using a smaller amount of electricity to do so. This is where the second portion of the benefit comes in. Since you are using a smaller amount of energy, this means that your utility bill is going to be much lower. This in turn means that you are going to be saving money. For many people, this is the defining factor when it comes to making the choice to using a solar heater. The more that you save, the better off your are going to feel.

Step 1 – Cut Your Panel

Now depending on the type of panel that you buy is going to decide whether or not you have to do any additional manual labor. You can choose to buy an actual piece of a solar panel. This will come in varying sizes that you can choose from. Of course, this will also let you customize the piece that you get. If you want to have the solar panel be out of the way, while still heating your pool, you can choose to cut the panel to fit into the hot tub perfectly. This will allow it to sit within the hot tub, and not be overbearingly visible.

Step 2 – Leave the Panel Alone

If you want to get the most out of your solar panel, you need to leave the panel alone. Let it sit in the sun, so that it will absorb as much of the sun as possible and this will ensure that you have a nice, and hot, hot tub.

Step 3 – Did You Choose an Electrical Panel?

These solar panels can be bought and are actually attached to the heating panel that rests over the surface of the water. By installing these by the pools water pump, you can ensure that the heating panel is constantly heating the water and always providing you with the perfect water temperature. This of course, is another benefit to your wallet because solar panels run from the energy absorbed by the sun, and thus means you are not paying for any electrical usage.
