How to buy your own solar systems

Before investing in a solar power system for your home, you should spend some time considering who is going to set it all up for you. You don’t want to buy a state of the art system just to find out that it was not installed properly and does not work. The first place to look for your installer should be your local telephone directory. If you cannot find anyone local, have a quick search on the web. You could make a shortlist of all the companies that can install your system within your budget. Once you have your list, you can begin to narrow it down by contacting each of the installers and asking questions to find out if they would be the best for you. An important question to ask is “how many systems of my make and model, or similar to mine, have you installed?” This is important because of how quickly the solar power industry is growing. New systems appear on the market all the time, and you want to be sure that your installation company has some experience with your specific system. You could also ask if your installer has any qualifications. Some manufactures of solar power systems offer training programs to make sure the installers are effective. However, because not all manufactures have this facility, don’t forget that years of experience can be even better than an assurance that your installer has completed a training course. Another important thing to find out is whether or not the company offers any ongoing support should you have problems with your system. You don’t want to be stuck without power for days on end while you find someone qualified to fix it! Make sure the company you choose has some sort of guarantee to prevent this situation. The best installation companies will visit the site and talk to you about what needs to be done. If you can find a company that offers this service, you should get a well thought out and cleverly planned installation.
