As the dark and gloomy winter draws to an end and warm sunshine is well on its way, now is the perfect time to consider a solar panel installation for your home.
Installing solar panels in the spring allows you to take advantage of the longer days of sunshine for maximum energy harvesting. Read on to discover more reasons to install solar panels in your home this spring.
1. Solar panels are more efficient than ever
Once solar panels have been installed on your roof, you can sit back and let the money savings start rolling in.
Due to their slanted positioning, solar panels clean themselves when it rains, so an occasional cleaning is all they need to stay in perfect condition.
2. Reduce your carbon emissions
With global warming continuing to accelerate, many homeowners are looking for ways to make their homes more sustainable.
As solar energy relies entirely on gathering energy from the sun and converting it into electricity for use in our home, it means that you are not producing any greenhouse gases or contributing to global warming.
It can reduce the carbon footprint of your home by 80% in one year, making it one of the most environmentally-friendly energy solutions available.
3. Winter isn’t ideal for solar panel installations
Without snow on the roof, it is also much easier for solar installers to place solar panels on the roof of your home.
Due to the unpredictable weather conditions we often experience here in the UK, installing solar panels in winter can be a difficult and time-consuming process.
While a solar panel installation should take no more than a couple of weeks, in winter, this process can often be delayed as the solar installers wait for the weather to cooperate.
4. Increases your property’s value
Spring is by far the most popular time of year for real estate as there are plenty of new properties on the market and spring also helps to enhance the look of a property.
If you have recently bought a new home, installing a solar system can help increase your property value before you have even moved in.
