Picking the company that will install your solar panel system is vital given the importance of workmanship to the overall efficacy of the system. Here are some steps you will need to take to pick the right company.
Review the Certifications
The main certifying body is the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners. Before choosing a solar company, make sure that the installer has someone with that certification. Furthermore, the company should have all the necessary licenses.
Check the Reviews
Online reviews are a great way to learn about experiences with the business. People like to share their opinions to help others make the right buying decisions. Look in the reviews for signs that the business is honest, professional and does good work. Many issues are avoided by spotting patterns in the reviews.
Research the Warranties
Solar panel systems have life spans of nearly 25 years. They need to last a long time in order to justify the up-front costs to install. Most of them are built to last, but you want to make sure that you are covered in case something goes wrong. It’s a positive when the installer stands behind its work and can give you peace of mind.
Have a Conversation
Talking to the installers will give you a sense of what they will be like to work with. Solar is undoubtedly a big investment that will require a close working relationship with the installer. They will be on your property during the installation, and you will also want to know that they are responsive to your concerns. Interview potential installers in order to learn as much about them as you can.
Compare the Terms
Different installers have different contract terms. This could make working with each one a markedly different experience. When you find a few good installers, look at any requirements or charges that they have and compare among them.
