Should You Wait Out the Winter to Install Solar in Lake Ronkonkoma?
Winter is here, and there’s going to be some rain, snow, and maybe even hail before we get to the spring. Temperatures are frigid at this time of year and most people like to stay indoors. The days are shorter and there’s not a lot of sunshine. But does this mean that you should wait to install solar in Lake Ronkonkoma?
If you’re thinking about installing solar with a home battery backup, now could be the perfect time to start planning. Let’s take a look at the reasons why…
It Takes Time to Prepare to Install Solar in Lake Ronkonkoma
While winter isn’t the most ideal time to install solar in Lake Ronkonkoma, it’s not exactly a bad time to take care of your preparation. It rains or snows for at least ten days of every month in winter, but this leaves most of the month with clear (although admittedly cold) days.
If you’re questioning whether you should delay your switch to solar, the answer is no.
Solar installations don’t happen overnight. There’s planning, permitting, ordering the equipment, and then the physical work. All of this can take time, with the average customer in America waiting between two and six months to have their panels installed. At Long Island Power Solutions, we like to stay on the lower end of the average range, but it’s still a fact that if you want solar today, you’ll have to wait a little longer than tomorrow to get it.
The Earlier You Start with a Free Home Solar Estimate in Lake Ronkonkoma, the Better
Even if the weather forecast looks grim, you can still start planning your solar installation today. The first step is to get your free home solar estimate in Lake Ronkonkoma. We can provide this with a simple online form, using satellite data.
The initial estimate is a ballpark figure. If you’re happy with this initial estimate, we’ll proceed to a detailed site inspection, and will give you a cost/benefit analysis.
This analysis is key to your decision-making process after getting a free home solar estimate in Lake Ronkonkoma. Using advanced software modeling, we’ll determine the yearly output of solar panels on your roof, and put this into the context of your usage and your average utility bill. You’ll be able to see how much you can save with solar, and what your return on investment is likely to be over time.
We have a simple philosophy at Long Island Power Solutions. We want our customers to love their solar systems. We don’t push people to install if it doesn’t make sense. We provide the information. You make the choice.
What Happens if the Installation Gets Scheduled During Winter?
There’s nothing to worry about if your solar installation gets scheduled in one of the coming winter months. Our technicians work throughout the year, and the actual physical installation process can be completed in less than a day.
We’ll schedule the installation based on your preference and the weather conditions. If something unexpected happens outside, we can easily reschedule.
Getting a Home Battery Backup System for Solar
If you want a home battery backup system for solar (also known as solar battery backup), then planning in advance is key. Battery demand is currently high so there can be a slightly longer wait in some cases, depending on availability. The sooner you plan to install solar panels with home battery backup, the faster we can get the right equipment for your system design.
The supply chains for home battery backup systems are complex, and they have been disrupted recently by the pandemic and shipping restrictions. This is being addressed with the expansion of domestic production, but it could take a while before America catches up with the rest of the world.
Whether you want solar panels only, or a system with solar battery backup, the faster you get your estimate, the faster the ball will start rolling on getting all of the equipment ready.
