How Thermal Solar Pool Heating Works
Thermal solar energy collected in the pavement surface can be captured by the ThermaPANEL units located under the pavement and used to heat domestic or pool water. Removing the energy will cool the surface at the same time.
Residual energy in the pavement can be collected at night to provide additional heat for the pool or other uses. As energy is removed from the pavement, it will create a comfortable patio environment and reduced urban heat island effect. Chillers, pools or a ThermaPANEL geothermal array can provide additional cooling.
Manual, automatic, or integrated building management controls can be used for system operation.
