PV panels are a great way to accentuate your home and start saving money. However, there are a few things that have to be kept in mind when it comes to these panels. When mounting the panels, all equipment has to be installed according to a strict set of standards. Any roof penetrations have to be sealed using a form of sealing that doesn’t affect the warranty of the roof. Because of this, we spend time going around and double-checking everything to make sure nothing is left to chance when it comes to your new solar energy system.
Your system needs ample sun for it to work properly. There cannot be any shading between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. or else your panels aren’t going to be able to do their job. Even such things as shadows from chimneys and vent pipes can cause a world of problems for your system and affect its performance. This is why we perform a thorough site assessment before installing anything on your home. We want to make sure nothing is going to interfere with your being able to take advantage of the savings.
All roofing products also need certain ratings, so we have to go around and make sure we are dealing with roofing products that are going to work with these PV panels. Otherwise, we have to discuss some of the other options available to you. Depending on what might be going on, you might have to replace your roof before you can have the solar system put in place on your home.
While it might seem like a lot of specifics with getting your new system, we are well-versed in what needs to be done and how to go about making it happen. Schedule your appointment today so we can get the process underway and help you save money quickly.
