Home solar panel installation steps
Learning what the solar panel installation steps are will help a homeowner know what to expect during the entire process. The first step is undergoing a complete home energy audit to understand exactly what the house needs. The second step is getting a quote on how much everything is going to cost. The third step is meeting with the professionals to understand the time frame in which all the work will be performed. The fourth step is installing the solar panels and the fifth step is maintaining the panels after they have been installed. The following is a list of some of the more popular installation options for home solar panels.
Ballasted non-penetrating roof systems
A ballasted non-penetrating roof system means that cement blocks are used to hold all the solar panels properly in place. The panels will be positioned in a way that allows them to absorb as many of the sun’s rays as possible, requiring a professional to know how much the panels need to be tilted in order to make this happen. This type of solar panel insulation for a home does not require any penetrations to be made through the roof.
A ground-mounted home solar panel installation is a great choice for those who have plenty of property space, but limited space on the roof of the home. When solar panels are installed on the ground near a home, the panels work exactly as if they were on top of the roof. Professional installers will be sure to install the solar panels so that they are able to capture the most amount of sunlight during the day.
A roof-mounted home solar panel installation is what most people tend to imagine when picturing home solar panels. This traditional mounting option is preferred when there is limited space on the property and will be installed on the roof in a way that captures as much sunlight as possible. When this installation option is chosen, the conduit will often be placed through the attic in order to attach it to the home’s electrical panel.
