What are the signs your home is ready for a solar panel system?
- You own the land or house
- You have a rooftop that can support a solar panel system
- Your electric bills keep increasing
- You have more sunlight than shade in your area
Almost every household has solar panel setups nowadays. It’s clear that more and more are realizing the advantages of going solar. First of all, solar is clean – meaning it helps in protecting the environment. Second, solar is renewable and sustainable. Third, solar makes attaining the Zero Bill possible. At Solaric, we believe that solar energy can benefit anyone, but that doesn’t mean every roof is ready for solar panel installation services. If you’re wondering if your home is ready to go solar, we’ve laid it out for you. Here are the signs your home ready for a solar panel system.
You own the land or house
It can be significantly harder to install solar panels on a roof that doesn’t officially belong to you. If you own your house or otherwise have permission from its owner to make structural changes, this is alright. But if you live in a condominium, for example, you’ll likely have to discuss the possibility of solar panel installation with the owner of the condo.
You have a rooftop that can support a solar panel system
The distributed weight of one solar panel is about 20kg. So, one of the telltale signs your home is ready for a solar panel system is if it has a rooftop that can support the weight of the panels. This can be assessed by structural experts.
Roofs have to be durable to support a solar panel system. After all, they’re exposed to elements all day, every day. However, solar panel systems usually last for 20 to 25 years. Thus, it would also be best to ensure your roof will not require repair or replacement before the solar panels are dismantled or reinstalled.
If your roof is any older than 5 years old, it is best to have it assessed for structural damages before you jump right into panel installation. If your roof is either new or newly repaired, it would also be good to match its current lifespan with that of your solar panels.
If you own a home with a rooftop, then why not benefit from reduced electric bills and increased home value by installing a solar panel system?
Your electric bills keep increasing
Electric bills are a dreaded monthly expense. Why? It’s simple. Electricity prices are immensely volatile. If you want to avoid volatility and reduce your monthly electric bills, then that’s a sign your home is ready for a solar panel system. You deserve a #ZeroBill too.
You have more sunlight than shade in your area
To make the most of solar harvest, you want the most sun you can possibly get. You won’t generate a lot of energy if your roof is in the shade. Ensure your roof is unobstructed by surrounding trees. It would be best to trim or prune them to ensure an optimal solar harvest.
A good way to check this as well is by utilizing solar compatibility checkers online, which assess your home via a bird’s-eye view from satellite imaging. Otherwise, you can also have your solar panel installation experts discuss the matter with you, and see if the sunlight in your area is conducive to generating enough energy to power your house.
We’ve discussed 5 conditions and signs your home is ready for a solar panel system. If you check all boxes on this list, you’re more than adequately prepared to have panels installed. If not, you might want to take them into consideration before you take a step further into turning on the sun.
You can confirm some of these yourself—the ownership of the property, for example, and the available sunlight in your area—while the rest can be quickly assessed and confirmed by a panel installation expert.
