Things To Consider When Purchasing Solar Panel Installation
Paying nothing or almost nothing each month for your electric bill sounds attractive, but are you and your home ready for solar panels? Before you schedule an installation, find out if solar panels are right for your family and for your home.
Your Home’s Roof
The first thing to consider is whether or not your home has the right type of roof. Solar panels can last up to 30 years, so your roof should be in new or almost new condition before you can install solar panels. Otherwise, you’ll have to remove the panels to replace or repair your roof, which can be costly.
You should also consider the shape and layout of your roof. Installers may charge extra to install panels on a flat roof or a ceramic roof, for example, because the installation takes more time.
While you want to get enough solar panels to cover your usage, you don’t want to buy extra. Perform an energy audit to see how much electricity your home uses over several months to a year. See if you can reduce your energy usage by upgrading to more efficient appliances or making an effort to turn off appliances, lights and electronics when not in use.
Your Home’s Location
Your home’s location plays a large part in how much sunlight you will be able to harness. A roof facing south, southwest or southeast will produce the most electricity. If your roof faces north, you may need extra solar panels to support your needs. Trees and other buildings can also cast a shadow on your roof, which can lower your solar panel’s production.
Types of Panels
There are some options in the types of panels available. Some panels have a tracker, so the panel actually follows the sun to get the most sunlight each day. They are more efficient, but they are more expensive to purchase.
Tax Credits and Rebates
Tax credits and rebates can help offset the initial investment. These savings may only apply if you buy a certain type of panel or have them installed within a certain amount of time, so be sure you know what tax credits and rebates are available before you purchase.
