Solar energy and solar panels have been gaining popularity steadily over the years, particularly in the roofing industry. It’s important to be well versed in the pros and cons of solar panels so you can assist homeowners in the decision-making process. There is a lot of good to be said for the benefits of solar panels and solar energy in general, but are they worth all of the fuss that they’ve been granted in the past few years?

The Pros

Perhaps one of the most attractive benefits is that solar panels can drastically reduce, or even totally eliminate homeowners’ electric bills. When you’re able to generate your own electricity, your energy costs can be reduced for decades thanks to the 25-30-year lifespan of the average solar panel.

Solar panels also increase the value of homes overall. Thanks to their energy saving properties, having solar panels incorporated into a home’s roofing can greatly increase its value and make it easier to sell down the line.

Many homeowners enjoy the control that they gain over their energy costs when solar panels are incorporated into their home’s roof. With more control and overall awareness of energy expenditures, costs can be further reduced and the environmental impact that each household has can be minimised.

The Cons

As many advantages as solar panels provide, they are not without their disadvantages. They don’t work on every type of roof. They need a specific mounting system that is harder to incorporate into older historical homes and the materials they are so often made of. That being said, they can be mounted on the steel roof materials provided by Rollsec.

If homeowners are looking to increase the quality of their roofing before they sell and move, solar panels are not always the best choice. It could feel like an unworthy investment if the owners do not have the chance to earn back their money in energy savings.

If the solar panels are not covered by solar financing, the initial costs can seem expensive and intimidating. This can be a huge deterrent to homeowners and can encourage the exploration of other more affordable energy saving options.

Overall, if a homeowners’ finances are able to cover the initial costs, solar panels really can be worth the fuss if there are the right local installers to get the job done.
