came out and did the initial visit to survey, give an estimate and show us the options.
was careful to let us know" the potential issues regarding the roof/ceiling. We decided to install 2 - 14" SunTunnels. My wife really liked the Optiview diffusors, so that is what we requested. The day scheduled for the install was
and "rainy". In fact, it was just before a major storm. He showed up and again warned me about what issues he could find. Due to some vent issues, we moved the position a little.
cut into the ceiling and luckily found no obstructions in both areas. A couple of hours later, we had bright natural light. Even though it was
, it was obvious that they would be perfect for adding natural light to our dark LR. Over the next 36 hours, we got 2.5" inches of rain. No sign of any leaks!!!! We are already expecting to use to add some light when we do our kitchen remodel.

"In our experience there is a close correlation between quality personnel and quality work. The
staff who worked with us are first class." The initial contact was with the Solar Energy Consultant; he was incredibly patient with us and our many questions. The communications were handled by the Operations Manager who was incredibly efficient keeping us informed and the project moving. The Service Pro and the installation crew were on time, courteous and updated us each time they left so we knew what to expect. We thought it was remarkable that at each step they were ahead of the projected time for a city inspection or completion of the project. There is no doubt the solar system will work as we want it to. This is the last of October and the system has been on for a week and the data shows, despite the low sun and short days, that kWh are being collected. We are happy.

If you’re pondering a solar panel system, learn about the basics before you contact a professional to assess your home's suitability for solar power.

Are you talking about powering your home solely on solar (i.e. no back up power source or off grid).

 

The power, once convered from DC to AC via the inverter, is suitable for use by the home. 

 

Most solar application are in supplement to the current powering of the home and will spin the meter back in the day but are not the primary.

OK - that should strike Atlantic Plumbing off your vendor list !

You say female pipe to copper pipe connection - I hope you are not saying they connected copper directly to galvanized or black iron pipe. If so, there should have been a dielectric union put in there to prevent corrosion, which could be part of your problem.

Also, generally a bad idea to use teflon tape for hot water tank connections - too much thermal cycling, loosens it up over time. Should use plumbers dope for that application.

It sounds to me like a connection problem - if the tank itself was leaking it should be flooding the top of the tank or more likely running down through the insulation and dripping out the bottom.

Unless you are a do it yourselfer, sounds like you need to find a new plumber with good reviews and rating in your area - Search the List (in green banner bar). This should be an easy fix - should have him put in dielectric couplings (about $5-10 each depending on pipe size) if current connection is iron to copper, and even if not, have him redo connection not only for cold but also hot water - if one was done poorly, probably both were.

The company representative arrived promptly and gave us all the information we needed about the product and the different options such as with or without a light and or vent. He then gave us the quote forthe job. He explained that if we were considering replacing our roof that insertion of the tube was best done at the same time.

was very professional in all dealings, the preliminary measurements, the sale, selection of panels, installation, all the permitting, the energy grants. The only thing that slowed the install was availability of panels from the manufacturer.

In my opinion,
Austin Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
is among the best, if not the best solar panel installations company in
Austin Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
, Texas and I will explain why. When you install a solar panel system it’s important you select a supplier with integrity, who will stand behind their product, does what they say, and will do at a reasonable price for the scope provided. Not only that, their aluminum racking system is very attractive, and goes up much more quickly and is lighter than conventional steel uni-strut systems. When I first installed the first phase of my system, I checked around with people who worked in the solar industry whom I respected and
Austin Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was the top candidate to do my solar installation. But unfortunately the artificially induced incentives by our local utility created a huge issue with scheduling and I was unable to get a quotation from Lighthouse due to their tremendous backlog. So instead of waiting, I chose another supplier which I regret due to extremely poor execution, and all the things that make a project the project from h*** in my opinion. But I corrected that when I expanded my system a few months later by awarding the second phase expansion to Lighthouse. In contrast to the first phase of my job taking almost four months of installation time and never sure when the guys would show up or what surprises were in store for me, Lighthouse did my second phase install in one day. I found Lighthouse’s crew extremely well trained, very helpful and friendly, anxious to deliver complete satisfaction and employees with good work ethics and attitudes.

In conclusion, I have supervised hundreds of contractors, have worked in the solar industry, and I believe

After receiving design packages and bids from several solar companies I opted to go with

From start to finish, the process was smooth. Installing panels is a long process. It took about four months because of the permitting and inspection required by the city. I was wondering if four months was average and the city inspector said he's seen the process take almost a year, so we were happy with four months.

guided us through the rebate process which paid for about half the cost.
If you're interested in solar, a quick phone call to

will tell you if it's possible in your current house (they pull up a google image of your roof), how much it would cost and what rebates are available. You'll know everything you'll need to make a decision within about 10 minutes. All without leaving your home.
Best news: our first bill after installation was -$7. Our next bill should be about $18! YES!
