The sun is the most powerful heat source in our solar system. If one-third of the Sahara desert is occupied by solar collectors, the energy generated will exceed the world’s energy needs. A solar panel converts an unprecedented 92% of the sun’s radiation into hot water for your pool or spa. A solar panel does not depend on outside temperatures or direct sunlight. This allows it to function optimally regardless of weather conditions, locations and temperatures. Why use it in a spa heater? How does it work? The answers in this article.
The main advantages of a solar panel
Increasingly advocated by environmentalists, solar panels have considerable advantages, including the reduction of energy consumption:
- The efficiency since it is a device of collection of solar light never known to humanity
- The provision of temperatures well above any other solar collector
- An operating principle related to the collection of solar radiation, not just direct sunlight
- An environmentally friendly technology that reduces your carbon footprint
- Maintaining water temperature with no heat loss
How a solar panel works
Gone are the days of traditional solar spa systems that absorb solar radiation but also lose a significant amount of heat, especially at low air temperatures. The patented solar panel technology can capture up to 92% of the sun’s radiation in vacuum tubes similar to a vacuum bulb. This operating principle prevents the loss or waste of collected heat and ensures its transfer to your spa.
With electricity prices rising steadily and our responsibility to conserve our planet’s resources, now is the time to raise awareness about the use of solar panels. Indeed, these systems cannot be sufficiently insulated from climatic conditions. However, there are solar panels on the market today with excellent insulation that prevents heat loss. The solar panel is designed to be easily installed in any spa system. For example, it provides maximum energy production with a small footprint compared to electric heating. It is an opportunity to reduce your energy bill while preserving the environment.
Solar panels: an interesting alternative to other energy devices
A revolutionary solution
Solar panel technology is the most efficient way to collect solar radiation because it allows you to process solar radiation entering the system from any angle, not just direct sunlight. The system offers the highest degree of heat retention.
An environmental solution
A solar panel uses solar radiation to heat your spa system with zero CO2 emissions.
The solar panel absorbs 92% of the available solar radiation in all weather conditions.
The optimized design of the solar panel ensures maximum performance in a small footprint.
A solar panel has a durable construction made of materials such as titanium, glass, and polymer alloys. It is compatible with any system, including saltwater and seawater systems.
An economical solution
A solar panel does not use external renewable energy sources to heat water, so it provides financial savings from the first days of installation.
An easy installation
The solar panel comes with a mounting kit that easily connects the system to your existing spa filtration system.
Properly install the solar panels to power the spa.
In order for your spa system to work properly, make sure you choose a good location for the panels. Make sure they face the sun when you place them on your roof. In addition, it’s best to install a cooling system (ventilation or hydraulic) to prevent overheating and a thermostatic mixing valve to maximize user safety.
Most of us are trying to reduce our carbon footprint, and more and more of us are turning towards renewable energies to run our home, and this is an excellent choice if you ask me and is the perfect source of energy for your home spa.
