But installing a solar energy system is not an easy thing to do. The process may last between 3 and 30 days, depending on the types of energy panels. Whether you are thinking of installing a photovoltaic system, a heating system or a mixed one, it is good to know some important things related to their installation.
For example, the first thing which should be known is the house energy consumption. Then, it is important to take into consideration the laws from the country where the solar energy system installation will take place.
Another important aspect to consider is where solar panels could be mounted. Often, the space is limited, so it is ideal for solar panels to be mounted on the roof. But if you own a flat, you can opt for the installation of the solar energy system even on the ground. But regardless of what type of mounting system you choose, you should make the solar panel to have direct access to sunlight. It is important to be sure that there are no trees nearby or other objects that may overshadow the panels. And if you choose the roof, you should analyze it and determine which is the most exposed to the sun part.
When you decide to install solar panels, you should also choose the suitable mount. This mount ensures the optimal installation of solar energy panels and protects them from wind, storms and other bad weather conditions.
After the solar energy system installation, it is necessary to calculate the angle at which light reflects best. This angle depends on how your house is placed. The calculation is very simple: find your house’s latitude, and then add or subtract 15 degrees, depending on the season. On winter, for example, it is important to add 15 degrees so that the solar panels become more inclined towards the horizon.
