Solar power is a renewable source of energy that many should give a second thought to. The only big surprise is the fact that this reality is yet to be recognized by many in the U.S. alone .Installing solar panes at home is one huge step toward cost cutting, because sometimes electricity and gas bills can become such a big headache, especially at that time of the month when health insurance and car insurance and others bills surge beyond expectation. The problem even move from bad to worse when one’s credit score is poor to warrant a loan acquisition.
As discussed hereafter is some of experiences l had to go through when coming up with solar panel installation with a particular emphasis on tips l got to successfully install solar panel in my home without having to seek the assistance of an expert.
The ideal size of solar panel for my home
What home appliances did l have that required energy? Well, nothing could make the difference like taking into consideration the size of solar panels l intended to install in my home. Sometimes the total amount of energy required would go beyond what could have been earlier estimated. While choosing solar panels for my home, l always took into consideration the fact that l needed every room to be well lit. This called for wider solar panels. In some instances, l would use larger number of solar panels to avoid scenarios of power outage.
Placement and Exposure
The main reason that inspired me to install solar panels was to tap direct photovoltaic energy emitted by the sun’s UV rays. Therefore, there was every need to ensure that my panel gets the maximum exposure. For this to be successful, l had to place the solar panel at the top most part of my roof to tap in maximum energy for storage. If l could not take this into consideration, l would have had to re-install their panels. I ensured that my solar panel was not under shade at any time of the day. This was important.
Cost and Warranty
Buying a solar panel was done on the basis of its quality which was directly attached to price or not. Furthermore, l made sure that l only bought panels from authorized dealers as this was to ensure l get those which would last long and be trusted by many. Fake solar panel could only work for a few weeks and go obsolete which could be very costly in the short run.
