Solar panels seem like a no-brainer because they provide sustainable energy. But actually installing solar panels is a big job that requires roof inspections, bids, and more. Given what you have to go through to get the panels, is it worth it to have solar installers come by and place them on your roof? Yes, it’s worth it.
Costs are dropping; just before 2016, the U.S. home solar market was worth approximately $4.7 billion. Many solar installers pair with roofing companies (or are even employed by roofing companies) to ensure that both the panels and your roof are in good shape when the installation is complete. Here are another few reasons why you should go solar.
If you have solar panels installed, you have access to the energy created from a sustainable source and can cut back on using power supplied by the city’s electrical grid. That’s because the panels actually feed the electricity into the city grid, which supplies power back to you.
If you have solar battery storage, then you can build up a supply of power for your home in the event of a power outage. When you get your solar panels installed, get a storage battery for your home, and typical power outages will not be an issue for you.
Utility Bills Drop
Even though solar panels feed energy back into the grid, and you get your power from that same grid no matter how many solar panels you have, you still save on utilities. You’re not providing that solar energy for free, and your lower utility bills are the result of the city utility “paying” you for that solar energy you produced.
Curb Appeal Goes Up
Solar panels that are already installed are a major plus for homebuyers. If you’re hoping to sell your home soon, adding those panels could allow you to get a higher price for your home. Even if you don’t want to sell, your home’s value can increase.
These were just a few great benefits of going solar. If you’re looking for solar installers you can trust, contact Suntegrity Solar today. Our team of solar professionals is ready to answer your questions and review your options.
