Cost depends on several factors: the type of system being installed, the size of the end product (home, business, water heater, etc.)We will do an assessment of your needs and provide you with the choices that will be cost effective for your home or business.
2.Will Solar improve the resale value of my home?
A recent Wells Fargo study published by ASES, the nation's leading association of solar professionals & advocates, shows that for each dollar spent on reducing energy costs at home, the payback was a 20 dollar increase in property value.
3.How much of my heating will I get from the Sun?
It is practical to design and install enough solar collection and storage to provide up to 50% of your heating needs.This means your checks to your oil or gas company would be half what they were this year.
4.Is it true that, by heating with Solar, I would have to get rid of the heat generated in the summer?
Yes. There are several ways to deal with this excess heat energy.Commonly known as the 'solar trifecta' this excess energy will provide most of a home's hot water, a third to a half of the home's heat and, if you have an in-ground pool, it lengthens your enjoyment from May to October!No pool, no problem; systems can be installed to turn themselves off when they are 'full' of heat energy.
5.How long will my Solar heating system last?
A properly designed and installed system will last for 25 to 30 years with just a little maintenance and attention from the homeowner! Professional routine maintenance services will be available at reasonable prices for homeowners and businesses, if desired.
6.Can I install a Solar power system myself?
Yes, if you have the desire to do the work.However, you will not be eligible for the Federal or State tax benefits.Nor will you be able to get bank financing for purchasing the system.The staff, at Solar Power Services PA, is manufacturer trained and certified to make the installation process effortless for you!
7.If I’m not ready for solar now, are there any steps I should take to prepare or move in that direction?
Yes, in preparation for solar electric, you should upgrade any marginal appliances to Energy Star rated products. If your direction is to move to solar hot water, you may want to replace your old hot water heater with a new solar hot water tank that can heat electrically until solar hot water is connected.
