Benefits and Considerations of Solar Energy for Your Home

When it comes to making your home more environmentally friendly, solar energy sets the bar. Choosing to install solar panels offers numerous benefits, from reducing your environmental footprint to saving you money in the long-run on energy costs. However, there are some potential drawbacks that you should know about before you make the switch to solar.

Pros of installing solar panels

  • Renewable Energy: Solar energy relies on energy from the sun, a source of energy that will not run out like many other energy sources. This makes solar energy a truly renewable resource. 
  • Environmentally Friendly: Unlike other energy sources, solar energy has minimal impact on the environment, significantly reducing your environmental footprint. 
  • Lower Energy Costs: Over time, it costs less to rely on solar energy than other types of energy, such as electricity. This means your utility bills will drop drastically. 
  • Minimal Maintenance: Solar energy systems do not require much maintenance; simply cleaning solar panels and other system components a couple of times a year is usually sufficient. 
  • Advanced Technology: Solar energy technology is constantly evolving and improving. This means that your system will only become more efficient over time. 
  • Tax Credits and Rebates: Depending on where you live, you could be eligible for tax credits and rebates up to 30% of the cost of your system when you install solar energy in your home. 

Solar energy is by far the best choice for the environment, and it can save you tens of thousands of dollars in energy costs over the years. That being said, there are certain disadvantages associated with solar energy systems.

Possible cons of solar energy

  • Upfront Cost: The initial cost of switching to solar can be expensive. However, keep in mind that you may qualify for rebates up to 30% of the cost of your system.
  • Weather: Although it is possible to collect solar energy on cloudy days, the solar energy system’s efficiency may decrease. Additionally, the system cannot collect energy at night. 
  • Energy Storage: Solar energy that is not used right away must be stored in large batteries, which can be costly. Alternative options include using solar during the day but not at night. 
  • Space: Solar panels and other system components require considerable space. You must have adequate room to install a solar energy system that meets your energy needs. 

The Big Mountain Heating & Air team can help you decide if switching to solar is the right choice for you. We are happy to answer your questions and provide more detailed information specific to your needs. Our goal is to help you find the right solution for your home. 

Solar Panel Design Services 

Creating a solar design for your home takes time and analysis. Your solar panels should be placed with precision to ensure the most energy from the sun is absorbed.

The Importance of Professional Solar Installation

Some of the many reasons to choose professional solar energy system installation include: 

  • Greater safety

Understanding Solar Installation Costs in Sacramento

One of the greatest benefits of solar energy is that it saves you significant amounts of money on energy costs. However, the initial price of installing a solar energy system can be somewhat costly. Many factors impact the overall cost of installing solar, including the size of the system, the number of solar panels required, the complexity of the installation process, your location, and more. 

One thing to keep in mind is that most Californians are eligible for tax credits and rebates when they install solar energy systems. Under the Federal Solar Tax Credit (AKA the Residential Clean Energy Credit), you may be entitled to tax credits amounting to up to 30% of the total cost of installing your solar energy system. Additional credits and rebates may apply, depending on where you live.

It’s also important to remember that the cost of using solar energy is far less than the cost of relying on traditional energy sources, such as electricity. Depending on your usage, you may see a significant reduction in your energy bills—or even a complete elimination of electricity costs.

Solar Panel Installation FAQ

What Are the Benefits of Installing Solar Panels? 

Outside of protecting our environment from harmful emissions, installing solar panels is a great investment for your home. A study found that solar panels can increase your home value. Reduced utilities could put money back in your wallet, and this is all while reducing your carbon footprint by lowering residential emissions.

Some of the many benefits of installing solar panels include: 

  • Lowered or eliminated energy bills
  • Long-term cost savings 
  • Reduced environmental impact 
  • Reliance on renewable energy 
  • Minimal system maintenance required 
  • Tax credit and rebate eligibility 
  • Continued technological advances 
  • Greater energy independence 

Solar panels are the smart choice for many California homeowners. If you are interested in solar panel installation in Sacramento or any of the surrounding areas, reach out to Big Mountain Heating & Air to learn how we can help. In addition to solar energy system installs, we also handle solar panel design.  

How does solar work?

The solar power process is relatively simple. First, solar panels convert sunlight into electricity in the form of direct current (DC). Since homes in the U.S. use alternating current (AC), the electricity then travels to a power inverter to convert the electricity from DC to AC. From there, the electricity goes into your home to power your lights and appliances.

When you connect your home solar power system to the electric grid, net metering allows you to send excess electricity into the grid in return for a credit on your energy bill. This means you can benefit from solar even when your panels aren’t producing electricity.

What size solar energy system do I need?

The size of your solar energy system primarily depends on your home’s energy usage. A home with two residents is definitely going to use less electricity annually than a family of five, so solar panel systems aren’t one size fits all. The Big Mountain Heating & Air team will review your home’s energy requirement and recommend the best size solar energy system.

How much do Solar Panels cost in Sacramento?

While it depends on the size of the system, you can expect to pay well over $10,000 for a residential solar power system. However, the 30% federal investment tax credit for investing in solar energy offers a significant discount on your installation, including parts and labor, no matter how much the solar panels cost. This means it may be easier to afford going solar than you think.

Do solar energy systems require a lot of maintenance?

One of the great things about solar panel systems is that they’re very low maintenance. Unlike air conditioners and other appliances, solar panels only need to be cleaned when dirty (about every six months) and serviced if they need repairs.

How do I maintain my solar power system?

You should monitor your home’s solar panels for debris, such as leaves and dirt, and wash them away to keep the solar panels working efficiently. A garden hose with a decent sprayer should do the trick in most cases, and solar panel cleaning services are relatively cheap if the hose doesn’t work well. If you notice a spike in your energy bills, have a professional inspect your system for repairs.

What happens if I move after having solar panels installed?

Don’t worry if you end up moving out of your house after installing a solar panel system. Homes with solar capabilities sell at a premium because the next owners will reap the benefits without having to pay for installation costs. You can then use the extra money to install solar at your new home or buy one with solar panels already installed.
