Making the switch to solar is a big step towards changing the impact you and your family have on climate change. Protecting the environment and using the sun’s renewable energy to fuel your household is one of the best decisions you can make. You’ll be reducing your carbon footprint and decreasing your reliance on non-renewable resources while helping reduce your utility energy bills. So, why are you still on the fence about this valuable opportunity? Here are three reasons why you may want to take that next step and call Cool Blew Solar today!
Increased Home Value
Today’s homeowners want homes with lower energy costs. Solar panels immediately boost your home’s value and make it more attractive when you’re ready to sell. The National Bureau of Economic Research estimated that home buyers gave a 4% premium to homes with solar energy systems installed. Another study published in The Appraisal Journal reported that home values increased by $20 for every dollar saved on annual energy costs. In Arizona, that can amount to an average increase in your property value by $36,000 and up. And, any home value increase by installing solar panels is exempt from property tax assessments.
Installing solar panels is an investment of time and money. But tax credits can help offset the initial costs. Tax benefits include a 26% federal tax credit for home projects that begin installation in 2022. Plus, Arizona has a state tax credit of $1,000 and solar equipment is exempt from sales tax. Also, you’ll buy less energy from your local utility company and eventually will save enough money to offset installation costs. The average payback period after solar system installation is 7.3 to 8.9 years for Arizona homes.
There are zero energy production costs as solar energy only depends on light from the sun’s rays. There’s no carbon pollution during solar power production at your home, and it’s noise-free. Solar energy generation doesn’t produce any waste or environmental damage. Energy from the sun is unlimited, and home panel installations require little maintenance. There’s no better time to go solar than now!
