Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from Custom Sheetmetal & Roofing, Inc.. Here in Topeka, and almost everywhere else across the country, we have a large supply of sunlight, and we don’t have to pay anything to get it. That’s why a SunSource® Home Energy System can help you save on your electric bills. Plus, the system can grow with your energy needs. How does a solar energy system help lower utility costs? Solar modules change energy from the sun into electricity that you can use to power your home. Depending on the size and power of your system, you could generate enough energy to power a portion of your appliances or even your whole home. If you look at a typical home’s yearly utility costs, roughly half of the total amount of energy used goes to powering heating and cooling systems. Even if your solar panels are simply generating enough to power your heater and air conditioner, your annual energy costs could still be cut in half because the energy used to power the HVAC systems came from the sun and not the utility grid. That accounts for some major savings! Many residential solar systems can actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, too. These could include other appliances, lights, TVs and computers, and all those other things you’d plug into an electrical socket. That means you’d be paying considerably less, if anything at all, in bills to your local utility company in Topeka. You won’t have to worry if your system only partially covers your family’s energy usage. Your system will be connected to the utility systems so you can use electricity from the grid when your SunSource isn’t producing energy. Learn more about how solar energy systems work.
