Are you thinking about adding solar panels to your roof to generate your home’s electricity? As you know by now if you’ve been researching the topic, they can be very expensive. A bigger question is how will it affect your roof and what you need to know before you install them.
“Putting solar panels on your roof costs as much as a car, but the cohort of experienced buyers is far, far smaller. The number of customers who have owned a solar system through its full lifecycle is even more limited. Besides that, the stakes are high—this is going on your roof, after all. “This is a big one. This is one where you can’t say, ‘well, if I make a mistake, the next time I’ll know better,’” says Jane Weissman, the president and CEO of the nonprofit Interstate Renewable Energy Council, which just released a consumer checklist and other resources for rooftop solar,” explains CityLab.com.
Here are the most important questions what you need to know before putting solar panels on your roof:
· Do you have a roof that can support solar panels?
· Have you done everything you can to improve efficiency?
· Which kind of solar makes sense?
· How do you connect to the grid?
· Is your installer trustworthy?
· Lease or buy?
· What should you see in your contract?
If you are seriously thinking about moving forward with solar panels to install on your existing roof, it would be wise to pull in your roofing company to work together with the solar panel company for the best outcome for you.
