BDC Solar Panel Installation Process For Your Long Island Home.
The solar power system is becoming more and more attractive investment for homeowners who and potential buyers who see it as a good way to cut the cost of utility bills. The panels can be used to generate electricity and heat.
Solar panels are usually installed on home rooftops, building tops, or stand-alone facilities. For solar panels to work effectively, they should be placed where they receive the largest amount of sunlight.
Ensure that all obstructions such as branches and trees are removed so that the solar panels can receive sunlight. The solar panels convert sunlight into direct current (DC).
Solar power installation is a very simple process that should never be complicated. However, it is not a good idea to do it by yourself. The best thing to do is to look for a qualified professional installer. For an average home on Long Island, the installation process may take something like 2-3 days to be completed.
Larger properties such as warehouses and business properties may require more time to be completed. The time it will take to complete the process depends on the solar PV product to be installed and the size of your property.
The materials needed for solar panel installation include roof anchors made of aluminum or steel which is used as a base to mount and where the mounting frame is attached, the mounting frame secured to roof anchors using a special locking system add bolts to screw it tightly.
The clamp is also needed to secure the solar panels on the mounting frame. You may need the mid clamp or the end clamp depending on the number of panels you want secured.
First of all, Long Island solar professionals will visit your property to investigate what product will work for you and the framing system needed to mount the panels to your roof.
During the installation process, the custom made aluminum framing system will be fitted to your roof to provide a sturdy and secure place for your panels to sit.
After the roof anchors are secured properly on the roof, the aluminum mounting and bars will be attached. These should be parallel to each other before locking it in place.
The panels will be added to the bracket and the frame fixed with a series of wires which are positioned at the back of the installation.
A qualified electrician will work with the solar installers to connect the solar panel cables to your household fuse box to ensure that you can get all the power your property needs and more from the sun rays.
Once the fuse box is connected to your home, an inverter will have to be installed. A PV or solar inverter is very important as it converts the direct current absorbed by the solar panel into an alternating current. The alternating current can be used as utility and any excesses fed back into the wider national grid. Be sure to ask BDC about LIPA solar incentives.
The inverters can last for a period of five years and should be replaced to improve the efficiency of the solar panel. The installation process is completed with connection which is then tested and commissioned. BDC provides Long Island solar experts.
