A new year brings with it new opportunities to reinvent or improve your life, and the idea of resolutions can also be applied to your home. In 2014, homeowners should resolve to be more energy efficient and aware of how their actions have a greater impact on the environment. You can go green without having to break the bank – in fact, many energy efficient changes you make to your home will end up saving you money in the long run by cutting down on your heating bills. Green technologies are a smart investment, and here are a few reasons why you should purchase a solar panel kit this year:
Easy installation: The biggest advantage of solar panels is the fast installation process. Homeowners will not have to lift a finger as seasoned professionals take care of all the hard work.
Economical: Companies are becoming more flexible with how they accept payments for solar panels. Because the price of this relatively new technology is dropping rapidly, companies can carry the upfront financial burden easily. Some will even offer homeowners the option of a monthly lease, but the payments will be less than what you were previously paying for electricity. Solar panels will also help counterbalance rising utility costs.
Durable: Solar panel longevity will sometimes depend on the company who manufactures it. On average, solar panels can last anywhere from 10 to 25 years, with routine maintenance checks and repairs being available. This makes solar panels a smart long-term investment for homeowners planning on staying in their houses for quite some time.
In addition to installing solar panels on your house, there are many other things you can do to increase its energy efficiency. R&J Tinting offers a wide selection of solar window tinting and window protective films that can help reduce your energy costs.
