1. Is the Person Selling You The Solar Power System Actually the Person Who Will be Doing the Installation?
That friendly person coming up to your doorstep to talk to you about your roof and installing a solar power system may not actually be affiliated with the company or contractors that will be doing the installation.
That’s right, many companies have employees that sell installation jobs to contractors. This presents potential problems for you. You may not be able to rely on these contractors to maintain your solar power system long term.
Make sure you ask the company selling this service if they are the ones that will be doing the installation, and if they are not, then find another company to work with.
2. How Long Has the Company Been Around?
A solar installation can be overwhelming for homeowners, so you will surely want to know how an installation works in terms you can understand. A reputable company of seasoned professionals can break it down in understandable terms and give you (the homeowner) a great customer service experience.
Check into a company you are thinking about working and make sure they have been around for a while. Ask them how many installations they have done and if they have worked on homes similar to yours. You want to make sure you are working with experts who not only know what they are doing, but are friendly and can give you the peace of mind that the job is being done right.
3. Are There a Lot of Reviews, and Are They Positive?
In this day and age, you probably won’t have to ask the company directly—you can simply go online and see reviews via Google, Facebook, and Nextdoor. What are customers saying about their experience with the company you are researching?
If they only have a handful of reviews, then that is probably a good indication that this company hasn’t been around for a while and may not be around in the long term if you encounter problems with your system.
