Frequently Asked Questions About Our
Solar Services

Solar energy uses the sun’s rays for generating electricity. It is an unlimited, renewable resource able to generate energy in a quiet, clean, and reliable environment.

Transitioning to solar energy presents numerous advantages. Lowering your energy bills, reducing carbon footprint, and augmenting your property’s value are just a few. At Affordable Solar Services, we make solar energy accessible and affordable for everyone.

Installed solar panels capture sunlight and convert it into electricity using photovoltaic cells. This generated energy can power your home appliances, HVAC systems, and more. Any excess energy is sent back to the grid, earning you credits on your energy bill.

This answer can vary depending on how much electricity you use and how efficient the appliances you operate are. In general, expect to generate excess electricity in the winter (when usage is lower), which can offset the energy you use from the grid in the summer.

We offer a variety of financing options, tailored to your unique needs. Each option has its benefits and drawbacks, and our expert team can guide you through this decision-making process.

Comparing solar quotes, consider not just the total costs and projected savings, but also the equipment quality and installer’s reputation. At Affordable Solar Services, we ensure you get a high-quality installation, superior customer service, and valuable after-sales support.

The duration of the installation process varies depending on the size and complexity of the system. If we are talking about the actual installation process, most residential solar systems are up and running within 1 to 3 days. For the straight answer – it will take about 2-3 months for the entire solar project to be completed due to planning, ordering the materials, and getting all the permits from city officials.

Yes! We stand by our quality of work at Affordable Solar Services, offering a LIFETIME guarantee on our installations. Furthermore, solar panels usually come with a manufacturer’s warranty that covers the panels for 25 years.

Typically, grid-tied solar systems shut off during power outages for safety. However, with a battery storage system, your solar installation can power essential loads during an outage. Speak with us to explore more about your options.

If you are a homeowner with a roof that receives sunlight most of the day and you’re tired of hefty energy bills, you’re likely ready for solar! Contact us for a free consultation and site assessment to evaluate your readiness and potential savings.

When installed properly, solar panels won’t damage your roof. In fact, they can even protect the area of the roof they cover. Our team of certified solar installers ensure a safe and secure installation that respects the integrity of your roof.

The condition of your roof can impact the installation of solar panels. If your roof needs repair or replacement within the next few years, we recommend getting this done before installing solar panels. Our experienced team can work closely with your roofer for a smooth installation process.

Yes. Solar PV systems do not necessarily have to be installed on your primary residence for you to claim the tax credit. However, the residential federal solar tax credit cannot be claimed when you put a solar PV system on a rental unit you own, though it may be eligible for the business ITC under IRC Section 48. Which specifies that eligible solar electric property expenditures must be “for use at a dwelling unit located in the United States and used as a residence by the taxpayer

Solar systems can increase your property value and make your home more appealing to buyers. If you own your solar system, you can include its cost in your home’s selling price. If you lease your system, you can transfer the lease to the new homeowner.

They are wonderful. Came and fixed the leak I had in my solar heat. They also checked all the pipes on the roof to make sure everything was good. I would definitely recommend them. Can't thank them enough.

Randy's team installed a new solar panel system on our roof. They were very fast and responsive. From quote to meter swap it was 7 weeks, which is incredibly fast compared to what other solar companies were estimating. They also gave the best panels and microinverters with competitive prices from my research. I highly recommend them if you are looking for a new solar panel installation.

My system has been in for almost two weeks and I am very happy. Price was very fair and the quality of work was excellent. My goal for this project was to lower my FPL bill each month for now with the intention of expanding next year to fully cover the costs of charging an electric car. There was good communication from start to finish and the owner of the company was quick to respond to any questions I had. Solar was something I have been thinking about for years and it was finally time to get some quotes. The salesmen they sent out was quick to put together an estimate and from there it was just a matter of waiting for the permits to be approved. The install went fine and the worst part was looking at the new system sitting on the roof waiting for FPL to swap out the meter to a new one so I could turn it on. I wanted all my panels facing south but a few had to go on the west and east. Surprisingly the west and east panels almost make as much energy as the south facing ones. I have an app on my phone and I can monitor all the outputs of the system day by day. My 7.2kw system is collecting over 40kWh per day in full sun...on a cloudless day. 40kWh covers almost all my daily usage in the summer. I want to thank Affordable Solar for a good experience in a post Covid mess of a world. I will be calling them back when I am ready to expand my system next year.

After dealing with mutiple solar companies in the past i have been very hesitant to rely on anyone that claims they "do" solar. After doing business with Affordable Solar Services I have faith in the industry again. I Hired this company to re-install a solar hot water collector after a re-roof. The crew that showed up was very knowledgable, professional and willing to answer all of my questions. before starting the job. The install went great and looks good on my new roof. I am rarely this satisfied with customer service these days. I 100% recommend these guys!

I first purchased a water-heater from Affordable Solar Services. They were knowledgeable and experienced salesmen. Quality installation and cleanup. Attentive to any questions and concerns. Great company and great service. Randy is punctual, friendly, honest, and awesome. I loved them so much, I am a return customer for pool panels. We definitely get more use out of the pool. I'm sure I'll return when the time is right for PV. 100% amazing and recommend!
