Unlocking the Savings Potential of Solar Roofing Shingles
Solar roof shingles are a relatively new technology that is gaining popularity among homeowners. They offer a number of advantages over traditional solar panels, including a more seamless appearance, greater durability, and easier installation. But one of the biggest questions that homeowners have is whether solar roof shingles can actually save them money.
The answer is yes, solar roof shingles can save you money on your energy bills. However, the exact amount of savings will depend on a number of factors, including the size of your solar roof system, your local electricity rates, and your energy consumption habits.
One study by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory found that solar roof shingles can reduce electricity bills by an average of 40-70%. This means that solar shingles could potentially save hundreds of dollars each year on your energy bills.
Solar roof shingles can also increase the value of your home. A recent study by Zillow found that homes with solar power systems sell for an average of 4.1% more than homes with non-solar roofs.
Here are some tips for saving even more money with solar roof shingles:
Choose a reputable solar installer. Watertight Roofing Services is a three-star Master Elite installer of GAF Energy's Timberline Solar Shingles, one of the best solar shingle roofing systems on the market.
