With the housing market in the upswing, after years of a downward market, families are choosing to rent apartments over purchasing homes out of their price range. The added demand on apartment home rentals has caused there to be a strain on availability which has led to a surge in new apartment complexes being built. Many of the newly built apartment complexes are designed for renters that can’t afford to purchase, but still want a home-like experience of ownership.
Solar Cut Long Term Commercial Pool Costs
One of the ways that apartment complexes, and other commercial pool owners, cut back on long term operating costs is to install solar pool heaters. Often these are installed on the roof of a clubhouse or office adjacent to the pool, but are sometimes installed on a permanent canopy or other appropriate structure. During the building and installation phases of construction the costs of solar panels are absorbed, similar to the costs of pool safety fencing.
Benefits of Commercial Solar Pool Heaters
Commercial property owners and builders consider the benefits of solar swimming pool heaters to far outweigh the costs. The biggest benefit is being able to attract more buyers by advertising “solar heated pools” against comparable accommodations. Another benefit is being able to charge slightly higher rents as you offer a longer than average swim season, and keep your pool area open for more days every year. Some apartment complexes see their ability to advertise as an energy efficient community or one that uses solar powered pool heaters as a draw to environmentally conscious consumers.
Regardless of the reason for using solar swimming pool heaters, apartment complex owners and managers are using them more often. To learn more about the costs of installing solar swimming pool heaters on your commercial swimming pool, contact the experts at Suntopia Solar Pool Heating today.
