Solar Thermal & Pool Heating Systems in Canada

Solar thermal and pool heating systems are a cost-effective way to generate hot water for your home in Canada. As the original solar battery, solar water heating is not only a smart investment, it's the truest form of energy security and sustainability.

Solar Water & Pool Heating 

We provide the following quality solutions for your solar water heating needs in Canada:

  • Solar Water Heating: The best way to reduce your electricity costs and maintain comfort levels in Canada. Solar water heating systems use solar collectors to capture and convert sunlight into heat, providing a reliable and eco-friendly source of hot water. These systems are highly efficient and can significantly lower your utility bills, even in Canada’s diverse climate.
  • Solar Space Heating: Heating a pool can be a requirement in many parts of Canada, especially to extend swimming seasons or for indoor pools. Many homeowners and guests look forward to a warm pool, and a cold pool can put a damper on leisure activities. Heating a pool with electricity or gas is prohibitively expensive. Solar pool heating systems are an efficient and sustainable alternative that utilize the sun’s energy to maintain a comfortable pool temperature year-round.
  • Resilient: AET Solar thermal collectors and tanks are built to last, With a usable life regularly exceeding 20 years, this will be the last water heating you’ll ever need to buy.
  • Solar Pool Pump: If you have a pool, running the pump can be your biggest expense. A solar-powered pool pump can eliminate this significant cost by using solar energy to power the pump, reducing electricity consumption and operational costs.

Canada’s Energy Mix

Canada is a global leader in renewable energy, with a significant portion of its energy mix coming from renewable sources. The country's energy mix consists of:

  • Hydropower: The largest source of electricity, contributing around 60% to the national grid.
  • Wind and Solar: Renewable energy sources like wind and solar are rapidly expanding, contributing around 7-8% to the energy mix.
  • Nuclear Energy: Contributes about 15%.
  • Fossil Fuels: Natural gas and coal contribute the remaining portion.

Solar water heating fits perfectly into this renewable energy landscape by providing a direct way for households to utilize solar energy, further reducing reliance on non-renewable sources and enhancing energy security.

Growth of the Solar Water Heating Market in Canada

The solar water heating market in Canada is experiencing significant growth driven by the country’s abundant solar resources, rising energy costs, and supportive government policies. Key factors contributing to this growth include:

  • Government Initiatives: Canada has implemented policies and incentives to promote renewable energy, including solar water heating. These include federal rebates and provincial incentives.
  • Rising Energy Costs: Increasing electricity and gas prices make solar water heating systems an attractive alternative for reducing energy bills.
  • Environmental Awareness: Growing awareness of environmental issues and the benefits of renewable energy is driving the adoption of solar water heating systems.
