How To Find The Best Solar Panels For Your Home In Buxton
There is no shortage of types and brands of solar panels in the market. However, all solar panels are not created equal. Here’re a few tips to help you make the right choice when it comes to solar panels for home use in Buxton:
Warranty Terms – Carefully read the warranty terms. Every manufacturer offers a performance warranty of more than a decade but sometimes, the warranty terms are pretty onerous. Also, some manufacturers do not provide performance warranties in coastal areas. Make sure you are aware of the warranty terms before choosing a particular manufacturer.
Upgradability – Electricity needs are always increasing which means you might need more solar panels in the future to meet additional requirements. Make sure you choose a system that can be easily upgraded in the future. Not all systems can be upgraded without substantial additional cost.
After Sales Service – Routine care and maintenance are needed to maintain the optimum efficiency of solar power systems. Make sure you choose an installer that is known for impeccable after-sales services. Don’t forget to check the fine print on specific warranties offered by them.
CEC Accredited – Make sure the solar installer you choose is fully CEC accredited. CEC accreditation requires installers to remain up to date with the latest laws and they only install approved solar power systems. It also means that they have the necessary knowledge and experience to ensure optimum efficiency and safety. GCR Electrical Systems is a fully CEC accredited installer.
