Spoke with a sales rep re installing a solar heat system; his company sells Heliocol. The system he is proposing is 550 sq ft for roughly $6,500. Is that in the ballpark for a Heliocol system? I imagine he will come down some with some pushing, etc. but just looking to see what I should be expecting.
Are there real world advantages to a Heliocol system vs one picked up from Costco or the like for 1/4 the cost or less? He went through the sales pitch as to it is better because it is installed better, etc. but couldn't really tell me if there was a difference in the product besides one is self installed and one is his team installing it.
Last question, those of you who have these systems in the North East (we are in NJ), how much does it really help you and does it extend your swim season - of course the nice sales guy showed us a graph and the like for how much longer the swim season would be, etc. but really, what do you see
