How long does a solar install take?
Although there are a couple of steps you may need to take prior to the actual installation process, installation may only take 1-5 days. Before this, and after an initial consult, CMI Solar will acquire necessary permits, review regulations, and send you your digital draw-up, which you can confirm before we begin any work.
Once all this has been completed, installation may begin. CMI Solar also offers a 5-year workmanship warranty on your solar panels in Ajax, just to secure your peace-of-mind for your investment.
Are solar panels worth it in Ajax?
100%. As mentioned previously, there are tons of benefits to installing a solar panel system in Ajax. For one, many solar panel systems offer the benefit of savings of up to 100%. Many homes have the potential to run entirely on solar panels alone, depending on the extent of their system and their location.
Solar panel systems can also help to improve a home’s overall resale value. When it comes time to sell, many homebuyers have a higher demand for such systems.
CMI Solar offers a low cost monthly solution which can easily be tied into your existing mortgage, allowing system costs to be roughly the same as your current power bill (on a month-by-month basis.) Rather than having to pay to rent your electricity from a utility provider, you can bake the costs into your mortgage payments and your own electricity.
Lastly, for those of us who wish to impact the environment as little as we possibly can, solar power systems are efficient in reducing our overall carbon footprint.
How many batteries do you need to run a house on solar?
Solar batteries have incredible capacity, and many homes utilize 1 or 2 if they are planning on wanting to keep the power on even when the grid is off (such as during a power outage) or to channel excess energy into their home to keep the lights on when the sun is down or when it’s overcast.
If your plan is to go off the grid completely, as some homes in areas with far higher electricity costs or that are situated rurally tend to do, you may need in and around the range of 8-12 batteries for the average home. Modern solar panels in Ajax have higher efficiency than previous iterations, and some communities have been known to run entirely on solar and solar batteries alone.
Are solar panels weaker in the winter?
On the contrary, solar panels may actually function better in the colder weather. Sometimes snow accumulating on panels and then melting can help to clean off any excess debris, as well. That being said, other factors may cause solar panels to appear as “weaker” in the winter months as well. High levels of snowfall could impact solar panel performance.
We also offer a maintenance package where a technician may come to visit your home once per year and assess the health of your panels.
Moreover, most cities in Ontario tend to have the lowest amount of sunshine in the winter months. December and January are both popular months for having very minimal sunshine, which can definitely impact the performance of your solar panels and may require you to utilize more energy from the grid than other months.
Even so, the reduction in energy costs is almost always worth it. Solar panels may not be as efficient in the winter weather, but they’ll still do their part to cut your utility costs.
How often do you have to clean your solar panels?
How frequently you may need to clean your solar panels in Vaughan is dependent on location-specific factors, such as weather conditions, the slant of the roof, and the type of panels your home has installed. It tends to be that area which are prone to accumulating higher levels of dust, airborne particles, and grit may require more cleaning, and panels that are located in areas with higher precipitation are often the subject of hard-to-remove residue. Panels in areas with less precipitation and less air pollution may only need to be cleaned 1-2x a year.
Still, however “dirty” or “clean” your environment, it’s a good idea to do an inspection of your panels at least once per every quarter and clean them whenever you see an issue. A quick visual inspection is all it takes to see if your panels are accumulating enough light to generate electricity for your home.
As an added, CMI Solar will also send a technician to your home once per year to inspect your system and clean your panels.
Our experience with CMI Solar has been very positive. We really enjoyed their business approach and that they treated the project individually with a non-cookie cutter style. This flexibility allowed us to be more hands on and share our input into the project plans. They were very responsive to any questions and supportive throughout the process. Our system installation went rather smoothly, and CMI’s team was able to respond to any deviation with minimal delay. Additionally, to facilitate the new system our electrical panel needed to be expanded to which, CMI was able to provide the equipment and install with excellent service. Overall, the system works great and can’t wait for more sunny days. Thanks, CMI Solar.- Anna Pawel Potemscy
