With spring on its way, it’s a great time to start planning solar service installation for your home. Investing in solar energy is joining the many forward-thinking Californians who’ve already discovered the joys of living off the grid when it comes to energy. They are saving money on utilities, in some cases actually making a profit from the power companies while they do their part to help reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.
At Home Performance Matters, we put our focus on getting you to net zero energy dependence. We offer a range of services from HVAC installation, duct and insulation work, to solar panel installation and maintenance. Here are four important questions to ask contractors when you’re looking for solar services for your home in Upland, CA.
This is a hot industry and that means many grabbers on in related home service fields are jumping in to cash on solar as a trend. It’s important to chose someone with plenty of experience installing solar panels so they won’t do damage to your roof. We’re currently at 426 Google reviews that speak to our quality service and time in the industry.
2.What sets you apart from other solar providers in the area?
Asking this question helps you understand a solar company’s philosophy and how they view their customers. When a contractor answers this, notice if they focus on dollars or beliefs in sustainable energy. Ideally, you want to hire someone who really cares about environmental impact and not just by throwing out the term. We show our commitment by providing a number of services around home energy efficiency beyond just adding solar panels. Tightening the home’s insulation and ductwork is one of many ways we go about making a home as efficient as possible.
Another big problem we’ve found is the industry is dishonest overselling of solar panels. More isn’t better when it comes to reducing your environmental footprint, but it makes these businesses more money to sell you more panels than you really need. Most homes have 20-40% more panels than they need to get the optimal amount of solar energy. We have the experience and integrity that matters and won’t try to sell you an excess of panels because we are passionate about sustainable energy and want the best for our customers.
A good contractor should provide you with a labor warranty on the work they do installing panels. Compare ours to others to make a decision. Ask specifically about roof damage issues, it’s important to know a contractor will pay for roof repairs if they cause a leak or loosen roofing material during the installation process.
It’s important to do your homework when selecting a solar contractor, not all providers are alike. Get quality solar services for your home in Upland, CA by calling Home Performance Matters today at 866-974-9944.
