Don't Install Your Solar Panels by Yourself

Solar panels, despite their capacity to withstand temperate to warm climates, can be quite fragile before blunt and piercing forces. It's possible to damage your roof and solar panels because of a poor attachment or erroneous positioning. For this reason, we strongly recommend leaving installations to professionals.

Solar panels have special accessories and components suitable for their operations. They have proper screws, fasteners, and preparation methods to secure the solar panels effectively. Screwing with too much torque or poorly balancing the steel chassis of solar panels might leave you with a panel that suffers from severe wind damage after a recent storm.

A team of solar panel installation professionals can handle your installations efficiently. They have an understanding of the proper installation and ensure zero damage during installation. Certified installation contractors, such as Roper Roofing & Solar, can provide first-rate services with minimal issues.

Solar panel manufacturers only provide warranties if your solar panels were installed by dependable contractors. For instance, if you install LG solar panels with Roper Roofing & Solar, you can get full warranties and other guarantees for your system.

There are plenty more reasons why you should only trust professionals to install your solar panels. Let ReNu Solar and Roofing share more about it below.

More than four in 10 homeowners are considering solar panels for their homes. Many of these property owners overlook the importance of professional installation. They may try to save some money by going with the company that offers the lowest quote or even attempt a DIY installation.

Choosing a skilled professional offers you many advantages, and the extra costs don’t add up to much more than you’d pay for a cheaper option. Since you’ll realize fantastic savings over your current energy bill, it makes sense to invest a bit more in a professional service that will help you gain the maximum energy yield and benefits from your solar panel system. Consider the following factors.

1. The Panels’ Quality

Not all solar panels and related equipment are the same. Panels with different technology and quality have varying efficiency levels. Most rooftop solar panels peak at 18% efficiency, with some only reaching 11% efficiency. Choosing the wrong type could limit your energy production capacity.

Your equipment could also have a shorter life span, which may affect your ability to gain cost savings from solar. If your panels give out before you’ve saved enough money on energy bills to cover materials and installation, you lose any potential DIY installation benefits. 

When you work with a trustworthy professional, you get their expertise and time-tested materials. Professional solar installers know which products hold up for their customers because they’re the ones who get the call if something doesn’t work. They can recommend and install the panels that will work best and provide the most efficiency. 

At ReNu Solar, our panels offer the latest in solar technology. The secret is advancements like split cells and microinverters. They produce more energy, even when the panels have partial shade cover. The cell advancements let you gain a higher energy yield per panel. The microinverters keep the cells generating energy, even in 50% shade. 

2. Curb Appeal

As solar power becomes a more realistic option for homeowners everywhere, you may notice some solar panels look different from others. Aesthetics is an essential factor in choosing the best solar panels for your home. Many communities object to solar panels because they have a reputation for being eyesores. Indeed, many of the solar panels you’re used to, especially older designs, include visible white backings. Some have a bluish shimmer, which leaves a stark contrast with the roofs. However, even black panels with white backing will stand out. (Continue reading to learn more about the benefits of professional solar panel installations).
