HOW MUCH DO YOU USE?
We don’t just mean look at your bills! Most homeowners won’t realise how much energy they’re actually using and how much is actually necessary. Here’s where an audit can be important to see how you can make some quick fixes to start saving immediately.
A close look at the layout and current condition of your home allows you to focus on energy waste- where the heating or air conditioning you pay for leaks out. It’s a simple fix to prevent energy wastage around windows, vents, doors, pipes, and even the corners and seams around your home.
HOW MUCH ENERGY DOES YOUR HOME NEED?
By now you will have made the most of your energy use by cutting all the waste. The next step is to understand how much wattage your home requires. This will help you select the most efficient, effective and reliable energy plan. Do you have family? Are the kids growing up? How many televisions? Laptops, cellphones and tablets? Is your home empty during the day? Does everything charge overnight? This will help you understand your pattern of usage intimately.
WHERE IS THE SUN?
This sounds obvious but it can be complicated in practice! The location of the sun makes a huge difference in optimizing you solar power output. If you’re in the Central Valley around Fresno county, try to place solar panels on south-facing slopes so that they spend the most amount of time possible facing the sun. However you’ll also need to consider nearby buildings, hills even trees.
You may want to consider a what kind of solar panel you will buy and find a smart system for your panel so that they can pan automatically to track the sun. This is certainly an additional upfront cost, but the extra time your panels spend directly facing the sun may pay off in the long term. Your investment on the right kind of solar supply system can help you lock in a long term benefit.
LOOKING AFTER YOUR SOLAR PANELS
Like any other part of your home some upkeep will be necessary to keep the panels functioning properly. The location is also critical of course to ensure they are accessible for cleaning or damage repair as well as periodic maintenance and ensuring they are working at maximum efficiency
