Ask Wanda: I’m ready to install solar power, but I expect I’ll be selling my home and moving to another one in the next few years. Is this even worth my money to do now, or should I wait until I’m in my next house?
Dear Making Moves,
When it comes to solar, there is no time like the present. It’s as simple as asking the question, “Do I want to start saving now or wait a while?” Why wouldn’t you want to start saving immediately on your electricity bill?
Doing something different can be nerve-wracking. In fact, only about 2.5 percent of the population are made up of “Innovators.” Innovators, the title bestowed upon the sect of the population most willing to adapt technology, aren’t hard to identify. Their natural habitat is camping outside Apple waiting itching to get their hands on the latest iPhone release. Innovators and Early Adopters – the brave group following the innovators who compose 13.5 percent of the public – are risk-takers, but they usually stand to reap most of the rewards. Solar panels aren’t brand new technology, but you may still be concerned about being the first of your family and friends to test the benefits.
I’m ready to make some big home improvements, but I’m not sure what’s the best use of my money. A finished basement? A new kitchen? Or are solar panels a wise investment?
‘Tis the season for home improvement shows at convention centers and meeting spaces around the country! It’s the beginning of the year and everyone is heading out to home improvement shows looking for the best ways to invest in their homes. We may be experts in solar power, but solar panel companies should be your first stop. Whether you are interested in saving thousands on your electric bill or reducing your carbon footprint, solar panels give one of the best returns on your investment of any change you can make to your home. Take our advice, and be sure to ask these five questions, too.
“I don’t think I’ll live in my home long enough to see the benefit of solar panels.” “I’m planning on moving within a few years, so I’m not sure solar panels are worth it.”
These are common obstacles our customers face when thinking about investing in a home solar system. We’re here to step you through it. Whether you stay in your home for the next year or 25 years, solar panels increase the value of your home and give you an instant return on investment while you live in your home. How? Let us tell you.
“What if I move?” “I don’t think I’ll stay in this home long enough to get solar panels.” “If I’m planning on moving, why would I get solar panels?” “If I don’t live here long enough to pay off the investment, I can’t get solar panels.” These are questions and comments we’ve heard from some of our customers when they’ve begun to think about investing in solar panels for their home. Whether you live in your house your whole life, or you move in 5, 10, 15 years, going solar is a wise investment (that will pay off!).
