I got mine through last spring. I personally love the product and am even thinking of trying to become a distributor for it and sell it to the homeowners that I do renovations for. Not only does it heat my pool, my attic isn't even hot anymore.

I've downloaded all the information of the solar attic system for possible commercial use heating pools in mobile home parks, extracting the heat from the large clubhouse attics. I have discussed the project with the company CEO and We will do more research on units being used in a commercial application. The savings of bottom line $$$ is most important to park owners, but I like the fact of saving our natural resources or the "Green Factor"

Hi ;

I live in New Jersey also and have a similar home. I was wondering if you could share your contractor information with me?

I've used the Solar Attic for several years In the NY metro area on an 18x36 inground pool that gets no more than 2 hours of direct sun all day long. With attic temperatures averaging 105 it heats the pool 2 degrees per day while dropping the attic temperature about 10 degrees. Gets the pool up to 78-80 or about 10 degrees warmer than previous. By comparison, neighbor's pool in direct sun all day long reaches 82-84. The fan can be heard running while the unit is active, but is not objectionable. Using the automated Goldline 235 series controller it can also be used by those in hotter climates to cool the pool during the evening - while the attic is cooler than the pool.

I am a dealer for them. Its a good product. I actually own long island solar pools and it looks like I sold a unit to Greg from a few posts back. I don't think they would heat a commercial pool very well unless the pool was the size of a residential. Anything bigger than a 20 x 40 and I won't do the install without either heating from the bottom or using a solar blanket.

I wanted to comment about this last post by shadow. He may possibly have the pcs2 installed in his attic. The fans on the new PCS3 are MUCH quiter than the pcs2s and really can't be heard from the rest of the house. The installation is also easier because we no longer have to mount using chains since the units don't vibrate at all.
