Turn Your Roof Into a Solar Energy Factory

Solar energy
Installing solar products on your home can reduce your energy bills by up to 70 percent.

Is your roof ready to become an energy-production zone? If you live in an area with solar possibilities, you can turn your roof from something that protects your family from the elements into an area that captures energy from the sun so you can use it to power your home. Even if you live in a cloudy or rainy climate, you might be surprised at the potential of solar energy for your home. Solar roofing is becoming an increasingly viable and logical home renovation choice, both for environmental reasons and to avoid rising energy costs for homeowners.

Why Install a Solar Energy System?

Could your house make its own energy? With renewable energy systems, such as solar, you can build a new home or retrofit an existing one so that it can generate its own energy. Solar energy has a low ecological impact and, over time, it can add to your home’s value as well.

While solar energy is always improving, a solar shingle system can currently yield 12 watts per square foot. That’s enough to send energy to your home and back into the power grid as well, saving you between 40 to 70 percent on your electricity bill or more, especially if combined with energy-efficient practices and appliances. You don’t need to live in an off-grid, rural home to do this. Solar energy systems are suitable for urban and suburban neighborhoods as well.

Solar energy
Some solar roofing might look like solar panels, but it can also be disguised as solar shingles.

What Are My Solar Options?

When you think about solar energy, you probably think about large solar panels that are either freestanding or attached to a roof. However, solar doesn’t need to look like that any more. You can add new roofing with a solar component to your home using solar shingles. Solar shingles look like ordinary shingles and they’ve become much less expensive. While there is a cost for materials and installation, local governments and other organizations often have discounts or bonuses available to you for making your home more energy-efficient.

Maintaining Your Support System

Everyone needs a support system. Your roof is no exception. You want to keep your solar shingles clean and free of pooling water. You can only do this by looking at the support structures for your roof as well. Integrate your gutter systems and drains into your roof replacement plan to ensure that your new roof is well-drained. Integrate the rest of your home and landscaping into a broader energy-saving plan. For example, adding awnings to your home can reduce your air conditioning requirements in the summer months, decreasing your energy usage.

When you’re thinking of shifting to solar energy to power your home energy needs, think of Harry Helmet when you plan your roof replacement.

I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.

Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!

VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.

We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
