Renewable energy has gained more popularity over the past decades as the greener alternative to fossil fuels and many are turning to solar power as a viable replacement.
However, there are a few things to consider before you invest in solar power.
So how do you make sure that it’s the right decision for you?
Buying the parts and paying for installation of solar panels can be costly, but solar power can actually be a return on investment. It can reduce your electricity bills so significantly that you can actually earn the money you spent back in just a few years!
Due to the increased consumer demand and technological advancement, the price of solar parts and installation has actually decreased and is now cost competitive with fossil fuel-based energy in many areas.
It’s important to consider the weather in your area and how much sun your roof is exposed to. Shaded roofs will inevitably generate less power than those in full sun so it’s an important factor to consider before investing.
Despite the variable nature of the availability of sunlight, solar is more reliable than you may think. As long as it is properly sized and installed, it can be a highly dependable, long term energy source… particularly in sunny Queensland.
The Condition of Your Roof
If you are considering solar power, it’s important that you have your roof checked before they are installed. If your roof is in need of repair, you should seriously consider a Roof Restoration before investing in solar.
This avoids extra costs down the line, as it can be expensive for a contractor to come and remove the solar panels and reinstall down the track, your roof does need to be restored.
A roof restoration will also ensure that your solar lasts for as long as possible as it will greatly improve the installation process. For quality roof restoration at a great price, get in touch with Roo Roofing today and book your free roof consultation!
