Lots of Idaho solar companies are excited to have you visit their website, give up your contact info, and use their “solar calculator” in order to get an accurate quote on how much solar you need and how much it can help you save…sound great doesn’t it?
There’s only one problem: not every house is the same! So how are they providing a real estimate?
It’s easy, because they aren’t!
They aren’t looking at your home, your energy needs, or anything else other than the size of your roof in square feet and how many solar panels they can squeeze into it.
Unfortunately, not only does this end up costing you more from the outset but it can even end up costing you for years to come! What happens when years from now you make other changes to your home? Maybe you install draft preventing double pane windows, or switch all your lights to eco-friendly bulbs….suddenly your home is needing 30% less energy but you’ve still got all those panels up there pumping it out.
While the power company is happy to have you helping them power the grid, this also means that the energy you’re paying to collect isn’t doing you as much good! We believe there is a better way.
We start by looking at the energy load your home currently requires. We look at everything inside and outside of your home to see what things can be improved upon to provide better energy efficiency long before we ever start measuring out your roof space. See, over the years we’ve developed knowledge that allows us to look at the bigger picture of your home’s power needs and by doing this we can give you a truly comprehensive whole home energy solution. This can mean the different between two panels on your home versus ten, and that equals thousands of dollars that stay in your pocket before we even begin work!
We would love the chance to show you all we can do – including solar thermal and beyond! We are confident that we will be able to offer you a plan for your home to help you start saving on your energy bills right away and for years to come! Schedule your free solar site visit today!
