5 Things To Know Before Buying Solar Panels

1. Is your roof ready for solar panels?

If your roof is old or damaged, it might not be prepared to take the weight of solar panels. You should get it inspected by a professional to confirm if it’s structurally sound. It’s also best to get any necessary repairs fixed before you order your panels. At the very least, your shingles should be relatively new; otherwise, the whole grid will need to be removed to access the repairs in the future.

If your roof can’t take the weight, and you’re not prepared to pay for a replacement, you can alternatively place solar panels in your backyard. Just be sure to aim them in the best direction for sunlight.

2. What types of solar panels are there?

There are three main types of solar panels to choose from; monocrystalline, polycrystalline, and thin-film. Monocrystalline is the most common option you will see in residential homes. This is considered to be the most efficient of all solar panels, but it comes with a steep price as a consequence.

Polycrystalline panels are a little less efficient by comparison, but they don't cost as much. Thin-film panels, on the other hand, have a much finer design, which makes them more flexible and portable. These aren’t as efficient as monocrystalline though. The best option for you will depend on your home and your budget.

And then there's the question of solar panels vs. solar shingles. Solar panels are more traditional and are lower in cost by comparison. Solar shingles are newer, and rather than sitting on top of your roof, are designed to look like your shingles, so they're more aesthetically pleasing. However, solar shingles are significantly more expensive than solar panels.

3. How much do solar panels cost?

Make sure you’re fully aware of the expense of installing solar panels before buying. You will likely need to hire a professional to install them, and you also need to account for any repairs your roof may require beforehand.

Be prepared that while you will save money on your bills, it will take a long time to make back the initial expense. Many solar panel installers will provide a calculator to see how much you'll save per month if you have solar panels.

4. Is it better to buy or lease solar panels?

One of the biggest questions you'll face is if you should buy or lease your solar panels. If you lease your panels, you don't have to pay a large upfront cost,  However, you do not officially own the panels if you choose this option — the equipment is owned by a third party. Plus, it won’t add value to your property as it’s not a permanent asset, and you won't be able to claim tax deductions.

However, leasing isn’t a total loss. It will still provide savings on your utility bills over time, and you won’t have the initial upfront cost.

5. Should I get a battery backup for my solar panels?

Solar panels are great for providing electricity when the Sun is out, but what about at night? Many solar panel installers also provide the option of adding a battery backup, so that when the Sun goes down, you can still draw the benefits of your solar panels and not use power from the grid. A battery backup system, but will provide you a source of power in case there's a power outage in your area, without requiring a noisy generator.

Tips for Buying Solar Panels

Unsure about how to choose the right solar panels for your home? You’re not alone. But these tips can make the buying process easier.

Output: Consider how much electricity you use every day to determine the wattage you need from your solar panels.

Space: If you have tons of open space to install your panels, you might consider the larger setups. But if you’re short on space, you might have to compromise by choosing a smaller setup or the pricier monocrystalline silicon panels, which offer maximum efficiency in minimum space.
