As a homeowner, it’s up to you to do everything you can to not only make the most out of your property, but save as much money as possible. By working with a trusted solar company in Tucson, Arizona, you can take advantage of all the wonderful benefits that solar panels offer.
Here are a few benefits of having solar panels installed on your home by an experienced solar company.
Significantly Reduce Your Home’s Energy Bills
Despite the increase in popularity, the cost of solar panels has actually dropped roughly 80% since 2008 and is expected to continue declining. Not only are the costs of the panels themselves more affordable than ever, but the return on investment is also much higher on lower cost systems. An individual residential homeowner can save, on average, about $125-150 a month on their electricity bill by having solar panels professionally installed. In sunny areas you could generate more energy than you can consume and generate credits toward your electric bill. With over 300 sunny days in Tucson, solar panels can reduce your electric bills by up to 100%!
Increase Your Home’s Resale Value
Owning a home that has solar panels will actually be worth much more in the future when you finally decide to sell your property. Buyers are becoming more environmentally aware and will look to solar powered homes when they hit the market. If your home is covered in quality solar panels, it will look much more attractive to prospective buyers who do not need to worry about high energy bills. An important difference of owning a system versus leasing one is that an owned system increases value, while a leased system is not personal property and cannot be included by an assessor in the home’s value. Even worse, a leased system typically has minimum credit scores required and a 20 year payment term that the buyer would have to assume. While leased systems have been very popular, they are creating problems for some seller’s when they decide to move. An owned system does not have this problem, and is counted towards the value of the home without a payment plan for the buyer to assume.
Enjoy A Quality Performance Guarantee
Perhaps the greatest benefit of using solar panels at your home is how they pay for themselves several times over while still under the 25 year power production warranty, and typically last for 30 to 40 years. Solar panels have been in commercial use for many decades in remote railroad and oil industries for monitoring and communication, so the historical track record is proven. Proper installation techniques by licensed solar contractors, especially those who are NABCEP certified (North American Board of Certified Practitioners), ensure that your photovoltaic system (solar energy) will provide all the expected savings and longevity the components were designed to achieve. Custom Solar and Leisure is NABCEP certified, and offers a 10 year workmanship warranty, ensuring your financial returns and peace of mind.
