I have the option of placing solar panels on our small pool house. The useable roof surface area is approximately 80 square feet.The pool is a kidney 34x16. I realize it will not supply enough heat to be the primary source. I have a solar blanket and a heat pump. The question is; Would the panels be efficient enough to take the edge off the cold? Or is it worth the time/expense involved with such a small area?
The roof gets about 6-7 hrs direct sun a day.
Our house is 200 feet from the pool.
I don't want to surface mount the panels.
