Living in the beautiful Sunshine State, there are a host of advantages of going solar. At Ace Solves It All, We’re not just the leading provider of water heater services in Orlando, FL. We also help hundreds of customers harness the sun’s energy to power their houses. If you want to become more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly, check out some of the advantages that solar energy has to offer.
Low Maintenance Costs
Solar energy systems require very little maintenance. They only need to be kept clean, which can be achieved by cleaning them over a couple of times a year. Most reliable manufacturers of solar panels offer a warranty or 20-25 years, and there are no moving parts, so there’s very little wear and tear.
The inverter may need changing after 5-10 years because it works continuously to convert solar energy into heat and electricity, and the cables may need maintaining to optimize efficiency. However, after covering the initial costs of the complete solar system, you will need to spend very little on ongoing maintenance.
Solar Is a Renewable Energy Source
Solar is a fantastic renewable energy source. It is available every day and can be harnessed in a wide range of areas all over the world. Unlike other energy sources, we will not run out of solar energy. As long as we have the sun in the sky, solar energy will be available. So, we still have at least 5 billion years (give or take) of solar energy left on Earth!
Solar Power Helps Decrease Electricity Bills
As you start to meet your energy needs with electricity from solar power, your energy bills will begin to drop. The size of your solar system and overall electricity and heat usage will factor into how much you can save. However, you may also be eligible to receive payments for extra energy that you send back to the national grid. Therefore, if you generate more electricity than you need, you could receive financial credits.
Solar Energy Has a Diverse Range of Uses
You can generate heat (solar thermal) or electricity (photovoltaics) using solar energy. Solar power can be used to create electricity in places that have no access to the energy grid and to distill water in areas with limited clean supplies. Solar energy can also be integrated into building materials. These are just a few examples of the myriad of uses that solar energy has to offer home and business owners.
