Solar is a great way to reduce or even eliminate your energy costs.  Not everyone is a good candidate for solar.  Your usage, electric or gas provider, and shading around your home all affect the feasibility of solar being a good investment for you. Just as with Heating and Air Conditioning, we offer the Multi Brand advantage.  We do not offer just one or two products and try to convince you that what we sell is better than anything else on the market.  We continuously communicate with our suppliers and watch for trends, such as a certain brand of solar module that is being returned at a high rate for failure.  We keep up on the industry and various manufactures and follow their advancements as well as online feedback on their products. When we quote a job, we try to quote a product that offers known reliability and competitive costs. Many people can be candidates for solar electric. If you have electric bills over $200 a month, you may be a good candidate for solar electric.  Solar hot water works best for homes that use high volumes of hot water or heat water with electric or propane gas.  However, even if you have natural gas, if you have a high usage, or have a commercial business with a kitchen, laundry, or provide hot water to multiple units, solar hot water can be cost effective even if you heat with low cost natural gas.
