As we get into the winter months here in Florida, it’s the time of the year where we can put our pool heaters to good use. While we don’t experience a traditional winter, a pool heater can still be beneficial. When it comes to solar pool heaters, there are several different options to choose from. Let’s take a look at the different options when it comes to solar pool heating in Florida.
Flat Plate Collectors
Ideal for Florida, a flat plate collector consists of a sheet of copper or aluminum. The system also consists of copper tubes that carry liquid across the plate to collect the sun’s heat. Flat plate collectors are ideal for both indoor and outdoor pools and are designed for warmer, sunnier climates like Florida.
Integral Collector Storage
Integral Collector Storage, or ICS systems, have a similar design to flat plate collector systems. They combine collector tubes and hot water storage tanks inside one insulated, glass-covered box. ICS systems are relatively easy to install and are great for warmer climates where seasonal draining is typically not required.
