Hiring a professional to fix or install any solar energy product can be the best thing you can do to help preserve the environment. But hiring a solar energy contractor isn't that easy. You should have a list of questions ready to ask a solar energy contractor to land on a best solar deal.
Question 1: Is it durable enough?
If you have a broken solar product and need to get it fixed, you might be wondering whether fixing the problem is the best solution. Perhaps you may just need to get a new one that's more durable to last a long time. Your contractor will give you a recommendation on whether it is best to fix or replace. Make sure to ask him about the durability of the product after repair or replacement. Ask if there will be a warranty or guarantee, and how long must you expect the entire system to last.
Question 2: Where else can I get the solar panel installed instead of the roof?
Most solar panels are installed on the rooftops of houses. But, those who have larger backyards or some who live in rented properties often get them installed on the ground. Ask your contractor about other areas in your property where you can have the solar panels installed.
Question 3: How do you estimate the size of the panel?
As a responsible homeowner, you should know the method used by the contractor to calculate the size of the panel. This way, you can be sure there won't be any overcharging, and it is simply better when you know everything about the product and service you invest on.
Question 4: Do we need a battery system?
Some solar products come with a battery system. The excess of solar power produced by the panels is stored in the battery. A battery system is necessary for houses with limited sun exposure. Ask the solar energy contractor about pros and cons of the battery system and if having one would be beneficial to you.
Question 5: Are there any financing options available?
Going green is not easy. Solar panels installation can be expensive. There are government incentives to support the adoption of solar energy. If you still need some extra financing assistance to get the solar panels, ask your contractor about your options.
