Solar Energy Systems
If you’re not yet onboard with solar energy, then you’re missing out. Not only could you be saving serious dollars on your electrical bill (and possibly even gaining credit!), but you would also be reducing your reliance on fossil fuels, which, as we all know, are limited and whose combustion is damaging to the environment. There’s never been a better time to invest in solar technology. The technology is more energy efficient than ever, and considering how much solar radiation powers this planet, it’s worth taking advantage of this resource. We can help you make the most of it, with our solar energy system services. Contact Lee Heating & Cooling today.
How Solar Energy Works
The basic piece of equipment for any solar energy system is the photovoltaic cell. This is the means by which the electromagnetic radiation that allows for life on this planet can be harnessed and converted into useable electricity. They come in the form of arrays that are installed within panels that are installed on the roof or directly on the ground, but the electric current produced is not yet ready for use in the home.
The "raw" direct current must be converted to alternating current so that it can be integrated into your existing electrical circuitry, and that requires the use of a solar inverter. Only once the electricity has been converted, it can then be sent to any number of appliances. That’s the basic process in a nutshell, although various solar energy systems (water heaters, HVAC equipment) can operate in different ways. We can go through the options with you and come up with a custom solution.
When It Comes to Solar, Pro Installation Is Everything
There is more and more public awareness about solar technology. As this develops, there tends to be more and more information available to the consumer. We love information, but we also want to make sure that you’re taking the right steps toward a successful solar energy system. Your first call should be to a solar energy system expert who can make sure that your system is not only carefully selected to match your specific requirements, but also installed carefully.
Without professional installation, your solar panels will simply not function as they ought to. It’s just that simple. They need to be carefully oriented toward the sun to maximize solar radiation intake, of course, but they also need to be secure enough to withstand changes in the climate. Moreover, your panels need to be connected to other pieces of equipment to transfer that radiation into useable electricity.

We Repair and Maintain Solar Energy Systems
If you’re having any difficulty at all with your solar energy setup, let our team know. Not only do we install new solar PV panels and solar HVAC systems from scratch, but we can also troubleshoot yours if it’s no longer functioning as well as it ought to. The key is realizing that you have a problem in the first place. One sign is visible damage with your solar panel, but there are others, including a sudden drop in efficiency and performance, as well as a notable decrease in the amount of energy the system produces. We are your solar energy system repair and maintenance experts, so give us a call today if you’re having any trouble.
