Many people know that Shirley Air can handle air conditioner and HVAC system repairs, but there’s a lot more that we can do to help home and business owners. Shirley Air can help property owners in the Dallas-Fort Worth area that are considering getting solar panels installed. Here are four main benefits of upgrading your home and having solar panels installed.  

Save Money

While there are many great reasons to switch to solar panels, the main draw for many property owners is the chance to lower their utility bills drastically. Though it costs a significant amount of money upfront, solar panels pay for themselves over the years thanks to the energy savings. Once it’s installed, the solar power system will generate free power for the next 25 years or longer. Even if you don’t produce 100 percent of the energy you consume from solar power, you will still drastically reduce your utility bills. The savings will increase over time as the rates consumers pay for electricity generated from a utility company continues to grow.

Increase the Value of Your Home

When people think about ways to improve their home that will increase its value, most people think about remodeling a bathroom, getting marble countertops, or improving the landscaping. However, getting solar panels is a great way to make a home more valuable on the market. Because solar panels dramatically reduce the utility bill for a home, it’s worth paying more upfront for a house that will cost less money in monthly bills. And because buyers know that homes with solar panels are relatively rare in the current market, they will value a house that already has that upgrade. In a way, it increases the curb appeal of a home. If someone drives by a house with solar panels, they will take notice and be impressed. 

Make the Best Use of Underutilized Resources

When it comes to alternative energy production methods, nothing beats solar panels for convenience. Solar panels take advantage of two underutilized resources: the sun and space on your roof. The majority of homeowners don’t spend a lot of time on their roofs; it’s just there to block the sun, rain, and snow. Turning that area into an energy production center for the home is an excellent use of wasted space. And the sun has been sending free energy to everyone, but few people can take advantage of it to power their homes. Getting solar panels installed by Shirley Air is a great way to save money by making use of things you already had that weren’t being used. 

Do Your Part to Save the Planet 

The previous three reasons were based on ways that getting solar panels benefits the homeowner, but having solar panels installed can help save the planet. Solar panels are an environmentally friendly way to get renewable energy. By using solar power for your home, you will reduce our energy dependence on fossil fuels and nuclear power. True, it takes far more than a single house with solar panels to make a difference, but every home with solar panels helps a little. And by supporting the solar panel industry now, you can help bring down the price of these panels in the future for everyone else.
