6 Important Questions To Ask Before Installing Solar
Solar is quickly becoming one of the most popular sources of power in the world. And we’re not surprised—if your home or business has solar panels installed, it will produce clean energy and you will save money on utility bills for years to come. But the installation can be a major investment, and before you make the decision to go solar, there are some very important questions that need to be answered first.
In this post, we’ll go over some of these most commonly asked solar installation questions, so you can make an informed decision.
#1: Why should I go solar?
It’s a serious question with an easy answer: solar is the future.
As solar prices continue to drop and solar technologies improve, it’s becoming easier than ever before for homeowners, like you, to make the switch. Plus, when you go solar, not only will your utility bills be saving you money every month, but your solar panels will also be eligible for tax credits that will help you cut costs further.
When you consider all this, solar is a no-brainer—if your home or business hasn’t jumped on the solar bandwagon yet, now is the time!
#2: How do I know if solar is right for my property?
This is another common question, and it’s important to know the answer before you rush into anything. There are so many variables in every solar installation—the size of your home, the type of roof you have, how much sun exposure your area gets during peak hours—that there’s no one-size-fits-all.
At iVee League Solar, we are here to provide you with all the answers you are looking for. The key is to get a solar assessment done on your home or business, which will include an evaluation of the property and a detailed breakdown of how much solar would save you each month. From there, it’s up to you—if solar sounds right for your situation, we can move forward and discuss a future solar installation.
#3: How much does a solar installation cost?
If solar sounds like it’s right for you, then your next step will be to figure out what solar equipment you need and how much an installation would cost. We’ll take a look at your solar equipment and then provide you with a free estimate.
From there, it’s just a matter of crunching the numbers to see what solar financing plan will work best for you or you have the option to pay your system outright.
#4: How long will an installation take?
Depending on the size of your solar system and the type of solar equipment you choose, solar panel installation typically takes one to three days. However, if it’s a customized project or a large commercial solar system, the installation may take longer.
Solar equipment must be carefully selected and measured so it’s just right for your home or business.
#5: How long can I expect my panels to last?
Solar panels are designed to be extremely durable and have an expected lifetime of around 25 years. This means that solar can save you hundreds—and even thousands—of dollars in utility bills every year for the next two decades or more!
#6: How do I choose a company for solar installation?
The solar industry is growing rapidly, which means there are plenty of solar installers out there for you to choose from. However, it’s important to be picky when it comes time to get your solar equipment installed—after all, this isn’t just an ordinary home improvement project.
When choosing a solar energy company, it’s important to look for companies with experience and a strong customer service record.
