From an environmental standpoint, there is no question that solar
energy is beneficial. When using solar power, you do not have to
worry about harming the environment in any way. However, things
get a little less clear when you consider the economic implications.
Use the information in this article to help determine whether or not
solar energy is right for you.
Solar energy through the use of solar panels can last up to 30
years. It is a long-lived use of energy and requires very little
maintenance on your part. Since there are no movable parts,
solar-energy panels rarely break or need repair. This can provide
years of savings on your electricity bill. However, check that things
like hail damage to solar panels are covered by your insurance
When determining whether solar energy is the best choice for you
there are several consideration to take into account. First, you
should ensure that your location receives several hours of sunlight
most days, ensuring enough energy to power your home.
Solar panels are not that easy to install, so you should hire us to
get the job done. While you will save a bit of money by trying to
do it in your own, you do not to risk ending up paying someone to
come out and fix up the mess you made. We get it right first time.
Once your solar panels are installed, you should check the inverter
frequently. A green light is normal. If the light is off or blinking, you
need professional help – call us. Most owners aren’t skilled enough
to diagnose the problem, and if you still have a warranty on the
panels, you shouldn’t have to pay for someone to look at it.
If you really want to see how your solar panels are working, keep a
diary of the day to day energy output, including weather conditions.
Having this information can help you to understand how your
panels work, and this can help you to optimize their performance.
Consider minimizing the upfront costs of solar panels by financing
via a lease instead of a purchase. This spreads the cost, using
monthly instalments rather than a one-off cost, so you start saving
money from day one.
Before making a choice on how many solar panels you need,
make a list of all the electrical appliances you use and the wattage
and hours utilized by each one. This will be helpful in determining
how much solar energy you need.
It is very important to keep solar panels clean. If your home is near
the sea or is just in a place with a lot of dirt, be sure you clean
them off once a week, using non abrasive cleaning agents. You
may have to clean them less if you live in a pristine area, but plan
on cleaning them at least every 3 months. The cleaner they are,
the more power you’ll get.
If you know that you cannot reach your solar panels to clean them,
the best thing to do would be to hire a professional to clean it for
you. If you are not sure who to call, call us and we will recommend
someone we trust.
Ask whether it is possible to install your solar panels with an
adjustable mount. You can get the best results if you adjust the
panels by season or time of day. Talk to us about assessing the
best alignment for your panels.
