10 Tips on Selecting the Right Solar Panels for Your Home


 Top 10 Ways to Select the Right Solar Panels for Your Home 

Installing solar panels for your home is a great way to save money on your power bill and do your part to keep the world green, clean and beautiful for generations to come. However, your first time dealing with solar panels can be a little overwhelming, so here is a quick list of tips to help you navigate your first solar panel purchase. 


Ask around with people that you know and trust who have gone through the process before, they will be able to give you insight based on direct experience. 


Look for warranties that are at least 25 years from solid and reputable companies. Solar panel systems are a major investment that are exposed to a reasonable degree of possible damage. Take the time to protect your investment over the long term. 

Price and Quality 

If you try to save by buying low quality panels, you will likely end up paying more in the long run due to damage or inefficiency. If you do find a good deal, make sure that it is because a major company is lowering prices to be competitive and not because a poor company is cutting corners. 

Standards and Certifications 

Do some research on national solar power standards and certifications. Only buy panels that meet the standards of national bodies, as opposed to just being quality-tested by the company itself. 

Panel Types 

Different types of panels have different levels of efficiency. This means that if you have a limited area for mounting panels, then you will quickly reach your maximum power output when using less efficient panels. There is nothing wrong with using cheaper and less efficient panels, as long as you have te space to meet all your power needs. Do not make the mistake of buying less efficient panels, and then finding out that you have run out of space without meeting your growing power needs. 


Be sure that your solar panel systems are mounted to your local standards. This is particularly important when you have regular local natural occurrences that might damage your panels, such as earthquakes or tornadoes. Solar panels can be mounted in ways that protect them from various natural occurrences, so be sure that yours are protected for the area of that you live in. 


The inverter is a major component of your home solar power system, and you want to choose solar panels that come with or are compatible with a high quality inverter. It is recommended that you start by choosing your inverter first, and then deciding on the solar panels that are compatible with it. 


Just as with any other major purchase in life, it is smart to shop around and get a few quotes from different suppliers and installers. This also gives you the chance to bargain or find deals, which is very common in the solar panel industry. 

Avoid Pushy Sales People 

Unfortunately the solar panel industry has many less than reputable companies and salespeople. If someone is promising you the world for nothing, you are likely to end up with low quality products. Go with a professional Solar Panel Systems company that offers you lots of guidance, information and advice, as they are interested in your satisfaction, and not just their bottom line.
