Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) June 25, 2014
In Las Vegas, the residential and commercial solar markets have continued to become more competitive over the past year, providing consumers with various options to explore when considering solar energy. As a result, Service 1st Energy Solutions has seen firsthand the effects of poor solar installation and service. Because of this, Service 1st Energy Solutions decided to examine how homeowners should select solar installation companies, and why it’s so important for consumers to truly educate themselves about potential companies and their processes.
“We believe that choices are valuable to our customers,” says Tim Fromhart, President of Service 1st Energy Solutions. “We also believe that customers should have access to the information needed to make educated decisions. That’s why we operate with complete transparency.”
Service 1st Energy Solutions cites a few major components for homeowners to review before selecting a solar energy company. First, they recommend looking at the history of the company. This includes their longevity in the local marketplace and principles of which they operate. Understanding a company’s philosophies and standards help consumers know what to expect regarding common practices.
Second, Service 1st Energy Solutions also recommends understanding the relationship between solar installers, electricians, and other possible sub-contractors. Having sub-contractors can be beneficial in some ways, but if not properly managed, it can create additional problems for homeowners. It’s important for consumers to learn how solar companies manage their workload and how it affects homeowners.
Third, company experience is essential to finding a good contractor. A proven track record can help customers feel confident with their solar installer. Past experience ensures that the solar installer knows how to manage every step of the process, from sales and financing, permitting and homeowner associations, all the way to installations and inspections. Talking to past customers will help give new prospects an honest perspective of what to expect throughout installation.
Lastly, Service 1st Energy Solutions has noticed that very few homeowners actually verify applicable licensing for services being performed. For instance, Service 1st Energy Solutions holds six active licenses for their various disciplines of work. This tells the general public that they practice their craft(s) in an honest and accountable manner.
These items are an important part of selecting a solar installer who can not only sell consumers on their products/services, but who can actually successfully install and finish a complete solar system.
