Is It Time to Consider Solar Panels?

This entry was posted in Solar on by .

There is no metro area more suitable for solar panels than Greater Phoenix. With more than 300 days of sunshine each year, we’re ideally situated to capture the power of the sun. Yet, many homeowners are reluctant to make the shift to solar because they believe it’s too expensive. The good news is solar is more affordable than ever.  There are low-cost loans, rebates and even 3rd-party-ownership models that can let you lease a solar power system without having to commit to buying one.

What Is the Savings?

Here in Arizona, the average solar system will save you nearly $33,000 over 20 years. This savings is seen each month in your utility bill. In other words, you can say goodbye to those frustratingly high summer electricity bills that are a result of air conditioning usage.

Most solar experts will tell you that the system typically pays for itself within five to seven years. When you consider that the average system has a 25-year expected life-span, you can begin to calculate how much you’ll save over time. It’s substantial!

Many homeowners wonder if there’s value if they don’t plan to be in their home for 20+ years. The answer is still yes, it’s worth it. Solar adds considerable value to a home which means that it will sell faster at a higher price with functioning solar panels on the roof. And, solar doesn’t add anything extra to property tax. At Cool Blew, we can help you calculate your planned electricity demands to help you gain a clear idea of your long-term savings from adding solar to your home.

Solar Panel Maintenance

Unlike many other home improvements, solar panels require surprisingly little maintenance. Because there are no moving parts, there’s little to do except a quick rinse with a garden hose every few months. And, solar panels can even help protect the areas of your roof located under the panels. It’s important to work with an experienced solar installer to ensure panels are placed in the optimal location on your roof.
