Solar Services Frequently Asked Questions
After you sign a contract, we send an engineer to evaluate your electrical system and inspect your roof. The next step is to acquire the necessary permits. Once we have approval, we prep your roof and/or replace shingles or tiles as needed. Then we install the electrical wiring that connects to the solar panels. Next is the racking required to support the solar panels is installed and leveled. Then, finally, the panels are installed and connected to an inverter to convert DC (direct current) to AC (alternating current) used in your home and by the power company. But before you can turn the solar panel system on, it must be inspected and approved by your local utility and, in most cases, a local town inspector.
The cost depends on the number of solar panels and installation/service labor. Every home and location is different, but be prepared to invest between $17,430 and $23,870 for a solar system, with an average cost of $20,650. Keep in mind that various tax incentives significantly reduce the cost of solar panels. Before we do any work, we provide a quote for your approval.
Yes. It’s certainly worth going solar and using our services if you want to reduce and even eliminate monthly utility bills, reduce your carbon footprint, and increase the value of your property. Most homeowners can break even on their solar investment in 6-10 years, depending on their home’s size, electricity costs, and financing options according to This Old House.
Every solar installation is different, and the time our service takes depends on the number of solar panels and the condition of your roof. In general, anywhere from 1 to 3 days. We provide an estimated timeframe in your solar quote.
Yes, just as you would with any contractor.
The roof must be in good condition with sufficient sun exposure so that the solar panels are tilted in a mostly southern direction to achieve maximum exposure. The best direction is south because the sun is always in the southern half of the sky, at least for those of us in North America. While east or west is less than optimal, the solar panels can still capture enough energy to generate sufficient electricity.
No. While solar panels are weather-resistant and aren’t affected by rain during normal operation, there’s a risk to the installers working under rainy conditions. Besides increasing the potential for slipping on a wet roof, installation requires running and testing wiring, which under rainy conditions, increases the risks of electrocution.
While solar panels are highly durable and considered low maintenance, they do get dirty, which blocks sunlight and reduces efficiency. A good rule of thumb is to clean the panels every three months. A long pole with a squeegee could do the job if it can safely reach it. Be careful, however, not to disturb any of the electrical wiring. If you have to get on the roof to reach the panels or are uncomfortable working around electrical systems, having a solar professional perform this service is best. TruHome Pros offers a highly affordable maintenance plan to ensure your solar panels work optimally.
