How to Choose the Right Solar Panel System for Your Home

Are you considering making the change to solar power for your home? With abundant sunlight and a strong push for renewable energy across South East Queensland, it’s a great time to invest in solar panels. But with so many options available, it can be difficult to know which system is right for you. Over our time in the industry we have established what points our clients should consider when deciding if solar is right for them.

We have always been of the mindset that solar is not always going to work for everyone out there. While it would be easy to nod along and push packages regardless, our reputation is essential to our success and this does mean turning people away on occasion. This is why we have our team of solar consultants go through the following points with each prospective client.

Here’s some key factors to consider in order to choose the right solar panel system for your home:

How to Choose the Right Solar Panel System - current usage

Assess Your Current Energy Needs

The first step in choosing the right solar panel system is to assess your energy needs. How much electricity do you use on a daily basis? What time of the day or night are you using the most power? This information can be found on your energy bills which our consultants will request. With these materics our consultants can recommend the right sized system for your home. It’s important to choose a system that can generate enough electricity to meet your needs, as this will ensure you see the maximum benefits from your investment.

choosing a solar panel system in your budget

Consider Your Budget & Growth

The cost of solar panel systems can vary, so it’s important to consider your budget when making your decision. You can expect to pay between $5,000 and $10,000 for a solar panel system in South East Queensland. It’s important to choose a system that fits your budget, but also provides the benefits you’re looking for, such as reduced energy bills and a reduced carbon footprint. We create custom packages based on each client’s needs and budget, finding a sweet spot in terms of value for money.

research solar panel manufacturers

Research Different Panel Manufacturers

As the solar industry has flourished within Australia, the amount of panel manufacturers has grown alongside it. This means it can be daunting when all these brands are thrown at you in various packages. It’s important to know the history of the manufacturer and its reputation via online reviews. We stock a wide range of solar panels from different manufacturers, all of which we have found to be reliable and perform at the highest industry standards.

consider solar panel warranties

Consider The Panel Warranties

The warranty for your solar panels is important, as it will ensure your investment is protected. Typically a solar panel will have 2 warranties: one for build quality and another that states how much power it will still be outputting after a certain period of time. Look for panels with a performance warranty of at least 25 years, as this will provide peace of mind and ensure your panels will continue to generate electricity for many years to come.

choosing the right solar panel installer

Choose a Reputable Solar Company

The company you choose to install your solar panel system is just as important as the panels themselves. Look for a company with a good reputation, positive customer reviews, and experience installing solar panel systems in South East Queensland. We encourage you to view our Google reviews as well as our reviews on Solar Quotes to measure our past performance. We are also a CEC certified solar installer and are completely Australian owned and operated.

choosing the right sized solar panel system

Size Your Solar Power System Correctly

It’s important to choose the right size for your solar panel system, as this will ensure you receive the maximum benefits from your investment. A system that’s too small may not generate enough electricity to meet your needs, while a system that’s too large may not provide the best return on investment. During your consultation, consider what future increases expect in your home via new additions to the family or renovations as these may increase your home’s power demand.
