Advantages and Disadvantages of Solar Panels

As you are probably already aware, there is a surge in people wanting to become more environmentally friendly and some have done this with the use of solar panels in their home. Solar power is the conversion of sunlight into electricity and in order to do this most you attach solar panels to your home. Solar panels are a great way to ‘go green’ and help protect the environment, not to mention the money-saving aspect.

There are obviously some great advantages to having solar panels attached to your house but there are some other things to consider if you’re thinking about installing solar panels in your home.


  1. Environmentally friendly
  2. No CO2 emissions
  3. Solar energy is free, meaning you will save a lot on your heating bills
  4. The panels also require very little maintenance so you will not have to spend out much to keep them in good condition.


  1. Some people do not like the aesthetics of solar panels and find that that puts them off installing them in their home.
  2. The sun doesn’t shine 24/7 so you might not want to 100% rely on solar energy
  3. Although solar panels will significantly reduce the amount of your utility bills, however there is the initial cost of the installation to consider.

Following installation, solar panels are all about saving money… and the environment of course. Over time, installing solar panels becomes worth it as the money you save on heating bills eventually adds up and surpasses the cost of installation.
