Getting a solar panel system is a big decision … and so is choosing which company will install it for you.
Thinking of installing solar panels? Here are some payment options to consider.
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.
Solar Panel Installation reviews in Fresno
The installation took approximately 2 1/2 days. The contractors and sub-subcontractors were very punctual and arrived in professional trucks and work dress. They immediately went to work and there was no wasted time in visiting. At any time if asked a question by me, they took the time to explain what they were doing and any options available.
They totally cleaned up after each day, and at the end of the project, so we did not have to live in a mess in the garage. At the end of the project, they took the time and effort to go over every detail and help us to understand the operation of the system.
The company uses master electricians and roofers to do their jobs, so we know it was done right. Even the City Inspectors were complimentary of their work and said that normally they have few, if any, problems with
The panels have been up and running since 9/26 and as of 10/6 I have produced roughly 555 kwh and I'm very happy with it. The only rub I have is that these gentlemen knew that I was going to have to upgrade my 125 amp panel and they'll catch you by saying maybe you might have to upgrade. Well low and behold after all the permits were applied (
Other than that they did a good job. Crew took 2 days to install and I went on the roof afterwards and I was satisfied.
A lot of the other people who came to our home were very "slick" salesman types. These other folks were not always clear about what the costs would be, what we would be receiving, or what equipment was best. When I'm spending a ton of money, I want someone who is interested in meeting my needs and providing something I want. I don't want anyone who is slick or not listening, and is just trying to make a sale.
Anyway, that's how and why we chose the company. I will also add that their bid was slightly less than the others, but honestly, even if it was slightly more, we would have chosen them, just on the basis of how they treat people and communicate.
We could not be happier with the results. They did everything they said they would, and on time, and at cost. There were no delays from them, no surprises -- this is exactly what you want from a business when you are spending tens of thousands of dollars.
The system is working fine. We got even more electricity out of it the first year than projected, and our electric bill for the entire first year was $92. Yes, for the whole year.
Also, I want to add one more thing about how this company does business. We had a small problem at one point, with a small part that needed to be replaced. It happened on a Sunday, so I emailed
Any doubts I might have had about hiring a company up in North Fork (when I live in Fresno), or any doubts about what might happen if I ever needed service and repairs long after I'd paid my bill in full -- well any such small doubts were laid to rest.
When someone provides customer service like that -- months after the work is done, cheerfully and promptly -- you have no hesitation about giving them your highest recommendation, and we do.
