Major Factors to Consider Before Installing Solar Panels

Solar energy is an excellent replacement for non-renewable energy as it is environment-friendly. It is used to charge batteries, save electricity bills, cook meals, and run heavy machinery in industries.

Major Factors to Consider Before Installing Solar Panels

  • The size of the panel

The first and foremost factor to be considered while buying a solar system is the desired size and suitability for your home. With new types of solar panels being developed and becoming commercially available, there are various sizes to choose from. The greater the energy required, the greater the overall space required for the setup.

  • The type of panel

Solar panels are of different types, and you may need to determine which innovative solar panel technology to opt for. Monocrystalline solar panels are the most efficient and the most expensive, while polycrystalline solar panels are an attractive and affordable investment.

  • The type of roof

Roof compatibility and mounting are important aspects to consider before getting solar panels. You have to determine whether your roof is suitable and ready for installation. If your roof is not in good condition or needs to be revamped, there may be problems installing solar panels.

The mounting system has to be of good quality if you live in a windy area. It is always advisable to avoid placing solar panels in areas obstructed by trees, buildings, and other structures. If you have built your roof with Spanish tiles or regular wood shingles, the need to get in touch with a solar panel expert may arise for quick installation of solar panels.

  • The amount of energy

Every household consumes a varied amount of energy depending on the electronic devices and gadgets they use, the number of people living in the house, and various other related factors. There are two types of solar technologies available: Photovoltaic and Thermal.

Photovoltaic technology turns sunlight into electricity, and thermal technology uses sunlight to heat water or air for domestic purposes. If you require a high amount of energy to meet your daily needs, choosing a thermal system may be suitable. Moreover, several panels may also be required for higher energy and performance.

Some Useful Tips for Panel Placement

  • If you happen to be living in the northern hemisphere, the sun faces the south, so placing the solar panels on a south-facing roof can get maximum exposure to the sun.
  • Likewise, if you live in the southern hemisphere, the solar panels can be placed on a north-facing roof.
  • If you do not consume much energy during the day and require energy during the evening, setting up a west-facing solar array is advisable.
  • If you need high solar electricity generation in the mornings, setting up in an east-facing direction would be preferable.
  • The extent of durability

Durability is a major concern in any equipment we wish to buy. Durable solar panels are cost-effective as they reduce the need to get replacements or maintenance services. Strong winds and weather conditions can cause solar panels to break, causing a huge hit on your savings. Moreover, solar panels with long-term durability can also withstand high snow loads and other environmental occurrences.

  • The period of warranty

Another important aspect to consider is the warranty period of any equipment. Getting solar panels with a longer warranty period can make them last longer and cover your expenses if there is a need for replacement or repair. Usually, solar panels come with a 10-year warranty and range up to 20+ years. Furthermore, solar panels with performance warranties can also prove to be effective. 80% is the optimum level of performance efficiency that needs to be maintained. Solar panels generally have performance warranties of between 25-30 years.
