Solar Power and Your Home

Thanks to federal tax incentives and a growing concern for the environment, many Americans are installing rooftop solar panels to cover or offset the cost of their utilities. In the last ten years, the solar industry has grown by an unprecedented 1,600 percent and it shows not signs of slowing. As solar becomes more affordable, however, debates have opened up around the use of solar power and its effect on older ways of producing electricity (like coal-fired and nuclear power plants).

Solar power is a complicated process that is part of an even more complicated industry. If you’re thinking about making the switch, consider this your crash course in rooftop solar power.

I’m interested in solar. Where do I start?

Before you call a local solar provider and start getting sales pitches it’s useful to know some background information on solar in your area. Do some research on your home state to see if your local government has incentivized solar in any way. Some states have provided funding to banks to offer loans for home solar systems.

You should also consider some details about your home, your current energy provider, and the amount of time you’re going to spend in your home. If you plan on moving anytime soon, leased panels may not be something you want to put up on the roof. Some buyers will happily take over the lease; others won’t be so sure or may see it as a headache.

You’ll also want to learn about net metering from your current electricity provider. The electricity market is now in flux due to the increase of solar. As solar makes electricity more accessible, it could make electricity costs go up from your local utility company. Net metering is the way that power companies measure how much electricity your panels put into the grid during the daytime which will be discounted from your monthly utility bill.

Finally, you’ll want to consider how beneficial the panels would be to your bill. If your home doesn’t receive a lot of sun or have enough viable roof space, solar panels might not be worth it. If you can buy the panels flat out, however, they’ll likely save you a lot of money in the long run.

Buying, leasing, and financing your panels

Buying, leasing, and financing all have their advantages and disadvantages which you’ll want to weigh before committing to one option. For example, even if you have the funds to buy outright you might prefer the leasing option for the maintenance and repairs guarantee. Maybe you want to buy or finance to take advantage of local and federal tax incentives.

Another thing to consider is the changing technology itself. As solar power improves, so does the technology that makes it possible. If you’re thinking of moving within the next few years it might be in your best interest to wait for the next generation of panels for your new home instead of buying panels that will be outdated in the home you’re in.

Making the calls

Once you’ve decided you want to go ahead with solar panels on your home you have another round of research to do. Compare providers in your area. Get quotes and setup options to find one that you’re happy with. Get a sample contract and read all of the fine print. Finally, check out the customer reviews to make sure you’ll be happy with this provider–especially if you’re leasing and will be dealing with them for the next 15-20 years.

Do you travel in the winter or rent your home in the Summer?  If that is the case be sure that someone you trust is watching over the panels that have been installed on your home.  Pat Foran is an accredited member of the National Home Watch Association and Foran Realty offers several home watch options for you and your family.  Be sure to call for details today!

        

Getting Your Vacation Home Ready!!

That time of year is upon us…the season is quickly approaching!  A big reason for owning a vacation home is rest and relaxation, but it’s not all fun and games. Opening a vacation home takes time and money. Plan to spend at least a day before the season starts to open your vacation home.

Specific tasks, such as draining off pipes or turning on utilities, will depend on climate, as well as when and how the vacation home is used. A beach cottage has different requirements than a mountain cabin. If you don’t live nearby or don’t want to do the work yourself, be sure to budget for a property manager like Foran Realty.


Opening a vacation home

When it’s time to visit your vacation home for the first time, or start renting it out for the season, you’ll need to get it ready. A ski chalet might require you to shovel snow and chop firewood, while a summer retreat by the shore might call for cleaning patio furniture and staining the deck.

Much depends on how well the house is maintained throughout the year. Opening your vacation home could be as easy as stocking the pantry, or if the house was neglected in the offseason, you could have multiple repairs on your hands.

A well-maintained vacation home shouldn’t take more than a day to get in shape for the season, assuming no major repairs are needed. Here are some typical opening chores:

  • Turn on utilities
  • Clean and stock kitchen and bathrooms
  • Look for evidence of plumbing and roof leaks
  • Cut lawn and trim shrubs/trees
  • Clear walkways and driveway
  • Set up outdoor furniture
  • Change light bulbs and smoke detector batteries and carbon monoxide detector batteries
  • Replace furnace filters
  • Check for signs of pest infestation

If you live far from your vacation home, you may have little choice but to hire local help. Pat Foran is an accredited member of the National Home Watch Association and is available to help with some of these tasks.
