If you’re in the market for a trusted home solar supplier, you may be wondering how to choose the best company for your needs. At Greenhouse Solar, we’ve put together a helpful checklist of must-haves for any solar supplier, and we recommend employing a company that ticks all of these boxes:
Choose a company that’s been around for more than 10 years. Due to the growing popularity of solar power, we’ve seen many solar companies pop up over the last few years. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, the problem is that if these companies go under, their work and their products are no longer covered under any warranties they issued. Do your research and go with a company that has a proven track record of satisfied customers.
They put safety first. Unfortunately, in the interest of finishing sometimes-complex solar installations ahead of time and under budget, some companies use shortcuts and don’t use the safest products on the market. Ask each solar company to explain their safety standards and procedures, and ask them to verify the safety ratings of all the products they use.
Independently verify any company’s stellar reviews. Most solar suppliers will claim they have hundreds of satisfied customers, but we recommend verifying this for yourself. Independent consumer review sites like TrustPilot provide you with honest, unbiased reviews from people across the country.
Ensure they have reliable after-sales support. You don’t want a solar company that simply installs your solar panels then disappears. Your solar panels will require repairs and maintenance over the years, and you’ll undoubtedly have questions as time goes on. Make sure to choose a solar company that provides support throughout the life of your solar panels.
Solar panel installation and maintenance
As mentioned above, solar panels will require some maintenance from time to time, but you’ll be happy to know that maintenance is generally very minimal, and solar panels rarely need repairs. With that said, your home solar company should also be available to you for any repairs and maintenance you need after installation. People enjoy the lower energy bills they get with solar panels, and they also enjoy minimal maintenance and repairs.
A trusted solar supplier will offer you guidance and support throughout the entire process, from installation all the way through to when your solar panels need replacing, which on average is every 25 – 30 years.
