"I have an older home, 25 years, and was getting higher and higher utility bills. This my have been due to the constantly increasing rates that
Energy is charging" but I wanted to kake sure it wasn't because my house or AC System was getting bad. I solicited several companies but
was the only one that genuinely knew what they were talking about. They answered my questions in language I could understand. I am really glad I solected them. They told me ahead of time what to expect and walked me through their testing. I enjoyed looking through all their pictures, which they took a lot of, and seeing where I had problems. I never would have seen or understood any of that unless without their expert help. They are super reasonable with their prices so I took advantage of all their services. I would definitely recommend them and am super glad I didn't go with anyone else.

"I was in the
for a solar powered attic fan to cool off the attic of my two story colonial type house. I researched not just a number of companies, but a number" of solar powered fans as well. I settled on a Attic Breeze fan because it carried the best warranty, was constructed of the best materials, and I liked the look of it, over other models I viewed. The Attic Breeze website pointed me to a local installer in my area,
. From my first call to
, I was speaking with
, a principle in the company, not a secretary or sales man. Mr.
is very knowledgeable in the green solar power field. He explained the fan, what it would do, what it won't do, and how it could help in my specific situation. We set up a time to install, and it took about an hour to an hour and a half. Upon leaving, Mr.
also went over the folder of documents he gave me. In this folder was an invoice, warranty, and the manufacturer's certificate statement for the Residential Federal Tax Credit. Also in the folder were all the applicable tax forms that I would need to file for credit when I do my taxes next year. Solar powered attic fans, at least in 2012, carry a 30% Federal tax credit, and a 35% North
tax credit.
math will tell you that the $791 I spent to buy the fan and have it installed, can be thought of as an expense of $276, after I take the 65% tax credits. I will probably make that amount back this summer with lower air conditioning bills. I couldn't have been happier with the experience, and I'm already seeing the benefits of the fan, just in the amount of time the air conditioner has to run.

"I
?t remember the exact amount I paid. At the time, I couldn?t find anyone else solar tubes which is a better product than the sun tunnel. I am very happy" with how these turned out; my house is a lot brighter for having them. I discovered one problem about a year after they installed the sun tube, but everything else went well. There was a light in the way of the installer and ripped it out but I?m fairly sure he didn?t tell me about it. I would probably use this company again in the future because, overall, everything turned out well.

There are many high pressure solar companies out there pushing a solar lease and homeowners may not fully understand what they are getting into, says Burnett. (Photo courtesy of SolarCraft)

Leasing solar panels may sound like a nice way to get green energy into your home, but count the cost before you sign that lease instead of buying outright.

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.

Charlotte Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
is an engineer and very knowledgeable. He oversaw entire job involving the solar panels, which required a plumber to connect and disconnect the water pipes, and 4 men to lower and raise these large panels from/onto roof. The plumber part of the job was a separate contractor, and
Charlotte Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
had him involved at the beginning and end when needed. Plumber was paid separately.

was professional and answered my questions. He reviewed my owners manual and completely understood the workings of the system. He was able to adapt parts such as the mounting brackets from a local supply store, as the parts of my system are no longer made.

came to the house several times to do the job exactly right, as he worked before and after the roofers did their work.

is a perfectionist in his work; I did not see him cut any corners or try to hurry the job. For all he did, I felt the bill was very reasonable and am so glad I can keep my electric bill down with the solar panels.

Charlotte Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
almost didn't get my business because they are so laid back. When
Charlotte Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
gave me his initial quote for a system, it was so far below the other quotes I had, I assumed that something couldn't be right. He didn't give me a big presentation and there was no sales pitch what-so-ever. Just "this is what I can do for you". So I didn't really follow-up with him, but eventually he followed up with me, and the more I talked with him the more impressed I was. This is a company committed to doing the right thing and that is truly doing this kind of work to help their customers save money and help the planet.
Pretty much everything went as planned and as advertised. Everyone I worked with was very conscientious, reliable and professional. As you can tell, this was a big project. It's essentially a construction project. There are a lot of moving parts. You're installing an electrical generating facility on your roof that is feeding sun-generated electricity back into the electrical grid. There are going to be hiccups and inconveniences. Yes, our grass got trampled. Yes, rocks from the driveway got strewn into the yard. Yes, there were delays in obtaining permits and inspections. But overall, everything went well. We received a high quality system from a quality company. I highly recommend

. And I would advise anyone looking to install a solar system that this is the type of project in which you will get what you pay for in terms of long-term system reliability as well as a quality installation that doesn't ruin your roof or set it on fire.
