Solar Savings; Cheaper Installs = Long-term Headaches

Solar savings

As solar energy becomes more affordable and accessible to homeowners, there will be some parties that falsify or over-inflate the amount of solar savings available to property owners. Many people are eager to take advantage of the potential cost savings that solar panels offer. However, it’s essential to remember that not all solar panel systems are created equal. Choosing a cheaper install team or cheaper equipment may seem like a good idea in the short term, but it can lead to long-term headaches and expenses.

Solar Savings – Where to Place Caution

The most obvious issue with choosing a cheap solar panel system is that the equipment savings upfront will be gone quickly after multiple service calls when the system begins failing. Cheap solar panels and system equipment are often lower-quality and, thus, more prone to failure. If something goes wrong with the system, homeowners will need to call in a technician to diagnose and fix the problem. Often, the cheapest equipment will come with minimal manufacturer warranties, if any. 

Cheap, poorly-built equipment will not perform as well as highly-regarded gear. Lower-quality solar panels won’t have the environmental resilience and consistent performance of higher-end options, meaning that homeowners will not be getting the full benefits of their installation. Over time, this can lead to significant energy loss and a decreased return on investment. Simply put, over the years of homeownership, the performance from a better system outweighs the cost savings upfront.

Believe us, service calls are not fun for anyone, and no reputable solar installes want’s to come back to the jobsite for equipment or installation issues. If a solar panel installation is not done correctly, it can lead to a host of problems down the line. For example, if the panels are not mounted correctly or if the wiring is done incorrectly, it can lead to issues with energy production and potential safety hazards. 

Long-term Savings are the Goal, Short-term are Not

Cheap solar equipment options are often lower quality and prone to failure, leading to costly service calls and repairs. Higher-end solar panel systems may cost more upfront, but they will perform better and last longer over time. 

Ultimately, investing in a higher-quality solar panel system is the best way to ensure long-term savings and benefits, not to mention save yourself a few headaches. 

By working with one of the best solar companies in Texas and investing in quality equipment, homeowners can enjoy the benefits of solar energy for decades to come.
