Solar Panel Installation FAQ
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 does a solar power system cost?
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.
