Harness the power of the sun. Lower your electricity costs. Reduce your carbon footprint.
Have you thought about installing solar panels at your home or business?
Solar energy is a viable option in Georgia and South Carolina mainly because we enjoy an abundance of sunshine throughout the year. On average, our region enjoys 214 days of sunshine a year—even our winter months tend to cast a ray of sunlight.
Our team of experts at Old Coast Heating & Air Conditioning has installed solar equipment in homes and businesses throughout Savannah, Hilton Head, and the surrounding areas. We have the experience and expertise to do the job right, from acquiring any necessary permits to helping you fill out possible rebate forms that can offset the purchase and installation costs.
How Solar Panels Save You Money
Solar energy reduces our dependence on traditional fossil fuels like coal or oil. They produce clean energy that emits zero greenhouse gases. To encourage the use of this clean energy source, federal and state tax benefits are available that can offset installation costs by 30 percent.
With solar panels, you generate your electricity and significantly lower your energy bills. In some cases, homes or businesses produce an excess of energy and can sell it back to utility companies.
A solar panel system will typically last 20 years or longer, which is a nice return on your investment. This is relatively a maintenance-free system that requires little attention once it is installed.
Installing solar panels increases the value of your home when you decide to sell it. If your home has a solar system, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) requires assessors to add the value of the system to the overall appraisal value of your home.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Solar panels use photovoltaic cells to absorb sunlight and convert it into energy. The energy then goes to an inverter, which changes it into electricity to power your home. Excess energy is fed to the electric grid, allowing you to receive energy credits.
Depending on your lifestyle, installing solar panels can significantly reduce your home’s carbon footprint. By all accounts, solar energy is a sustainable, clean energy source. All you need is sunlight—technology will take care of the rest.
Solar panels can be installed practically anywhere in the world. They represent an important step toward energy independence for the United States and other countries that rely on imported oil.
Installing and Maintaining Solar Panels
At Old Coast Heating & Air Conditioning, we offer heat pumps, air conditioners, and other pieces of equipment that are compatible with solar energy. We can also modify existing systems to accept solar panels. Next, our team of experts will:
- Analyze your home’s energy efficiency
- Evaluate your solar potential
- Estimate your solar electricity needs
This information will help determine the number of panels you need. While the panels are often installed on the roof of your home, it is possible to install them in other areas of your home that have maximum exposure to sunlight.
You can count on our team to properly maintain your solar panels to ensure you enjoy the benefits of solar energy for many years. Our Performance Club preventative maintenance plans provide you with annual inspections and tune-ups for all your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment. These plans save you money and provide you with peace of mind, knowing the care of your HVAC equipment is in good hands.
