If you decide to install solar panels for home, you’ll be able to save money while also removing negative carbon emission from the local area. It’s easy to be enthusiastic about the idea. But prior to adding solar panels on your roof, what are the questions you should ask to ensure solar power is a good fit to you, your house in your environment?
Do I require an upgrade to my roof to be solar-powered?
Solar panels should be put up on a roof in good shape. The inspection of your roof’s condition is an essential step to determining whether your home is suitable to harness solar energy. Based on the condition of the roof, you may think about fixing or replacing your roof before installing solar panels. The positive side is that almost every kind of roof (asphalt, clay tile, shingled) can be adapted to solar panels. An skilled solar contractor will evaluate your roof’s feasibility early during the process.
Do we have to upgrade our wiring in order to receive solar energy?
In the majority of instances, you won’t need to conduct extensive rewiring to harness solar energy. However, you do must ensure you have enough space in your electrical service panel to handle the solar energy input. the Exajoule solar installer will confirm this on your visit to your home.
Does my house face the right direction for sunlight?
In the past, houses facing south were thought to be the best for solar panels due to the fact that they were the best at harnessing solar energy. However, advancements in solar technology allow high-performance solar panels such as Exajoule’s to draw lots of green energy from a roof not correctly orientated to the sun even in days with clouds. Additionally, some utilities are paying more for solar energy that is sent to the grid at periods of peak demand, like late in the afternoon, southwestern or western-facing roofs that are able to capture more of the sun’s rays are often able to generate solar energy with a higher worth to homeowners.
