How to Select a Trustworthy Solar Installation Company

This entry was posted in Solar Services on by .

Many homeowners are investing now in home solar systems to do their part in limiting climate change and to take full advantage of the 30% federal tax credit. While DIY shows and home improvement stores have made it easier to make your own home repairs and renovations, it’s not a good idea to DIY install rooftop solar panels. Solar panel installation is not as simple as online solar panel installation kits advertise. The installation, permitting, and inspection process can easily overwhelm you.

You’re better off working with an experienced, locally owned, solar installation company that can do the job right the first time. In fact, your selection of a solar installation contractor can make or break your ability to save money on your investment in solar. Here are some tips to help you find a contractor who can ensure you get the most out of your solar investment in Arizona.

Local Business

Unfortunately, there are many fly-by-night solar installation companies in Arizona that will offer you low prices and fast installation. Many have little or no experience and are only interested in making a quick buck. You’ll want to select a contractor that offers free estimates, has the experience to ask the right questions, recommend the right solar system, and has the know-how to install it correctly.

Solar Hardware

Don’t just settle for the least costly solar panels and associated components. You’ll want to ask questions about solar panel efficiency, solar panel durability, and the impacts of weather conditions, such as monsoon thunderstorms in the Valley of the Sun. It’s important that the solar installer you choose is well-versed in the specific permits and utility work needed to connect your home’s system to the power grid.

Customization

A skilled solar installer will carefully evaluate your home and surroundings. This includes taking a close look at your roof, including the contour of the roof, aesthetics, and the amount of shade and sun.

Licensed and Bonded

Everyone on the installation crew should be licensed and bonded. Things can get complicated, and you’ll want a trustworthy contractor to do the job right the first time.

Warranty

Ask about what’s covered in the manufacturer’s solar panel product warranty terms, labor, transferability, and any extended warranties available.
