Household solar pv is currently more popular than ever. The huge reduction in the cost of the last decade, in combination with the multiple benefits of a photovoltaic system, have led to thousands of households to switch to a specific solution of a reduction in the cost of supply.

The power and the continuous increase in the price of the is one of the biggest "thorns" every household budget and the photovoltaic although initially seem a big investment, in fact, start the quenching from the first day of operation.

This is achieved by the reduction of energy consumption by the network. Every house produces its own power, so reducing the cost of electricity in each account. In fact, the cost of power can be reset in the event that the power consumption does not exceed the production. If there is a "surplus" is stored for three years.

In a previous article, we mentioned the most common misconceptions about solar panels for homes που προέρχονται από ιδία επαγγελματική εμπειρία κα την επαφή που είχαμε στην ΙΩΝΙΚΗ Renewables με εκατοντάδες πελάτες και βοηθήσαμε τους ενδιαφερόμενους να ξεκαθαρίσουν στο μυαλό τους ορισμένες καταστάσεις που ενδεχομένως είχαν κατανοήσει εσφαλμένα σχετικά με τα οικιακά φωτοβολταϊκά.

In this article, I will present you 5 factors to calculate before you proceed with the purchase and installation of a photovoltaic module, in order to help you take the best decisions with maximum performance.

1.Select the appropriate technology of photovoltaic panels and inverters for photovoltaic for home

It is perfectly reasonable for someone who has no knowledge of the solar panels can not be aware of the technology. To know this, you will need to contact someone who knows. So in a company that sees them as customers.

So in this case, the person is again suspicious. Will considers that the expert who has addressed you try above all to sell it.

Technology panel photovoltaic for home

As is the case in too many cases, the quality of the manufacturing company of the panels plays a very important role. So we need to look for reputable and well-known companies that manufacture panels.

Για παράδειγμα, στην ΙΩΝΙΚΗ Renewables στα Elite πακέτα μας προσφέρουμε μονοκρυσταλλικά πάνελ της εταιρείας Luxor. Τα συγκεκριμένα πάνελ διαθέτουν τεχνολογία ημι-κυψελών και 25 χρόνια εγγύηση καλής γραμμικής απόδοσης.

From this placement, the majority of readers would not have understood a lot of things. However, what you need to do is a simple search on the internet to Luxor where you will find offers of the highest quality and cheaper panels. Yes, it's a German company. These signs indicate that this is a credible proposal panel.

Note that all the companies have their manufacturing units in China.

As for the technical part of the technology, keep in mind that the panels are divided into two categories. The monocrystalline and polycrystalline, with the monocrystalline be more efficient.

Inverter technology for photovoltaic for home

Exactly the same procedure must be done for the selection of the inverter. If you chat with an engineer of our company, you will be notified that the more expensive packages offer us German inverter SMA and the cheapest chinese inverter Huawei.

How do you find out if what we suggest is reliable? A search on the internet will show that the SMA and Huawei's in the Top 3 of the companies that dominate the global market in inverter. After all, that is the reason why we chose the cheaper packages of the well-known chinese company Huawei, to not make any reduction in the quality that we offer.

Focus on well-known and reputable companies. Don't risk an investment of several thousand euros, and with a long duration by selecting non-reputable companies, even if it cost you something extra.

2. Ask about the guarantees

Of course, an investment of such magnitude and of such a time period you have to check out the guarantees which it offers each product.

As technology progresses, both the panels and the inverter evolve and become better, more efficient and more durable.

However, nothing is absolute, and a problem can occur anywhere. There is a small mathematical chance confirmed in a small portion of owners of photovoltaic systems.

Although none of us wants to start a transaction, thinking negatively, always in such large markets we want to know about any negative potential and what guarantees we receive.

What guarantee do they have photovoltaic panels and what is the guarantee of the inverter;

Καλό θα ήταν να ρωτήσετε το γραφείο που έχετε απευθυνθεί αν προσφέρει επιπλέον εγγύηση. Για παράδειγμα, για τους inverters που είναι το πιο ευαίσθητο κομμάτι μίας φωτοβολταϊκής εγκατάστασης στην ΙΩΝΙΚΗ Renewables έχουμε διπλασιάσει τη χρονική διάρκεια της εγγύησης και από τα 5 χρόνια, προσθέσαμε άλλα 5 και προσφέρουμε για τους αντιστροφείς τάσης 10 χρόνια εγγύηση.

Such effects offer even more value to the owner of a photovoltaic system and he will have to seek before purchase and installation of pv.

3. Calculate the power

A good company selling energy systems will help you to calculate the energy that you use. This is an important factor in order to calculate how much energy it will produce the photovoltaic you, so how many kW you need to install.

To know the average energy you consume, you can receive the correct decision for your photovoltaic system.

4. Consider possible ways of funding

There are few times the last time we spoke to stakeholders for household photovoltaic and was not aware of the program SAVE – ΑΥΤΟΝΟΜΩ which enable the energy upgrade of a residence.

Normally, the offices will contact will inform you of the available modes of financing, it is advisable to do some research first and foremost, to ask you the same information and to inquire if the agency that you apply to take over the procedures of the program or if it works directly with someone else who will take care of the arrangements of the programme.

The SAVE – ΑΥΤΟΝΟΜΩ who were inactive the last few months, is expected to return in the next few days, and as announced by the Ministry of Environment and Energy, is the energy upgrade of 60,000 housing with support rates up to 75%.

5. Select the appropriate company for the purchase and installation of a photovoltaic for home
