You may be under the impression that installing solar panels is an easy thing to do in a weekend. However, unless you’re an electrician that isn’t afraid of heights or of handling heavy loads on a steep roof, you may want to reconsider. Here are just a few good reasons the average homeowner should hire a professional solar installer rather than doing it themselves.

Electrical Safety

Professional electricians have a healthy respect for the power of electricity with good reason. Although harvesting solar energy with the aid of solar panels is pretty straight-forward, at some point you’re going to have to tap into your existing power supply. If you’re not an experienced, licensed electrician, you could make serious mistakes that are costly to both life and property.

General Safety

As attractive as it may sound, inviting your uncle, a few friends and a case of beer over to crawl around on a hot roof is an accident waiting to happen. Chances are, none of you are that experienced at working on the roof and with a ladder. It simply isn’t worth the risk. Hiring trained solar installers to do the job safely is a bargain at most any price.

Tools And Parts

You may well be the do-it-yourself kind of person, ready to tackle most any kind of project around the house. Kudos to you and your DIY ingenuity. However, you are also the type that knows when they are about to get in over their head. Although mounting a solar installation on your roof may seem on the surface like an easy task, make no mistake that it involves more than a sturdy ladder and a few screws. A professional installer has all the specialized tools and additional parts needed to get the job done right.

Experience and Training

Certified and Trained solar installers make the job look easy because they have undergone extensive training and all the passed certifications necessary in the state of California. Additionally, they have experience with many different types of roof and mounting situations. The reality is, you’re not going to be able to manage the job as easily or quickly as a pro can.
