Are you considering installing a solar panel system for your home? You’ve probably been searching online for more information to help you make a reasonable decision on how to do it. The main, and probably the MOST important decision you have to make is whether or not to have a solar system professionally installed or to build and install your own solar panels on your home. Here are some pros and cons of both.

The main advantage of having a professional solar panel installation is that you are worry free. A professional will come to your home and talk to you about your solar needs and together you will decide how much to spend to fully equip your home. He will do all the work (at cost or course) and you won’t have to do anything but pay him. The downside to this scenario is that it will cost up to $20,000 for an average size home. If you have income to spare, this is an ideal way to go solar on your home.

In today’s economy, most families don’t have that kind of money to spare, so a viable alternative is to build your own solar panels. This may not seem possible to most people, but it’s pretty easy if you find a good guide that shows you step by step how to make and install your own panels for less than $200 a piece. This can also be an easy way to “test” the waters of using solar energy to reduce energy bills in your home.

I hope this article helps you make your decision.
