Solar panels can be very beneficial for your home, but there’s a few things to think about and know before installing them on your roof:

  • Can your roof support the solar panels? Most homeowners have a good roof to support solar panels, some roofs have to be replaced before solar panels are installed. It’s important to think about how old your roof is before installing solar panels. 
  • How long will you live in your house? Solar loans typically take around 7-10 years to pay off so it’s important to think about if you’re planning on living in that house for a while.
  • What direction does your roof face? You want to understand what sides of your roof get the most light so you know where to place your solar panels.
