When you invest in solar energy, it is essential to protect your investment with the proper warranty package. Different installers will provide different warranties to their customers, so it is important to understand what the different options are.
A good solar panel warranty package will cover more than the panels themselves, it will also cover the entire system, the installation itself, and even your roof! It should also extend throughout the entire lifetime of your system – which is an estimated 25 years.
Only the best solar panel installation companies will offer a 6-point 25-year warranty package. This is considered the industry gold standard and consumers shouldn’t settle for less. Read on to find out why the 6-point 25-year warranty package is so important.
What Does the Solar Panel Warranty Cover?
When you choose the 6-point warranty package for your solar installations, it covers the replacement and repairs that are needed on your solar panels and other parts such as inverters, racking, and the roof. This not only protects the equipment you have purchased, but it also protects your roof from being damaged, as well!
And since the estimated lifespan of a residential solar system is approximately 25 years, a 25-year warranty will keep you protected throughout its lifetime.
So what exactly does a 6-point warranty cover? Let’s find out!
Like the panels, the inverters are designed to last and perform. In fact, they are expected to exceed performance expectations based on their design. If at any point they are not meeting the performance requirements, they will be assessed and replaced by our team to meet the requirements.
The racking system is the mounting system for your solar panels. If at any point they need repair or replacement to maintain the protection of your solar panels and the inverters, they will be replaced with your warranty.
The quality of your roof is also protected for 25 years after the solar panel installation. Before applying the panels on the roof, it must meet certain criteria to hold and withstand the panels. Our warranty offers any repair and replacement protection that is needed over the next 25 years.
Sometimes solar panels experience defects and require repairs that are related to initial installation and technicians who have serviced the equipment. With your warranty, you have protection against these defects and can have it repaired at no additional cost to you.
Sometimes defects from the manufacturer appear and start to cause a disruption in the solar panels after the manufacturer warranty has expired. Without a quality solar panel warranty, you would be facing hundreds of dollars in repair. With the 6-point solar panel warranty, you can expect your warranty to cover these defects and meet repair requirements.
With a warranty that has a lifespan of 25 years, the performance of the solar panels is one of the most essential components of the warranty. This investment is not one that you have made lightly and should be protected. In many cases, these systems outperform what is estimated in savings each year and those savings belong to the homeowner. If we have promised it to perform a certain amount of savings and it does not meet those intended estimates, we will provide you with the annual difference.
Gain Some Energy Peace of Mind Today!
Without a 6-point 25-year warranty, you could find yourself high and dry when repairs or replacements are needed. It may also be a signal that the company who installed your system is not as confident as a more experienced installer.
At Solar Optimum we provide all of our customers with a 6-point 25-year warranty to make sure they have energy peace of mind. But we don’t stop there! We also go above and beyond by making our warranties transferable. This means that if you sell your home, the warranty can be transferred to the new homeowners. Many installers don’t offer this incentive and that is part of what sets us apart!
