How to Choose a Solar Company

Switching to solar makes sense. But with a surge of new solar companies, it can feel a bit overwhelming knowing who you can trust to power your home. Here are a few helpful suggestions and questions to ask yourself that will help you find a solar company who will do the job right.

Find out what other people think of them.   

With new solar companies popping up every day, choosing one that has a track record of excellence is important. One of the best indicators of a reliable solar company is what their customers are saying about them. Looking for reviews on Google and Facebook can give you an independent perspective on the company. You can also check out SolarReviews.com, a website that reviews and compares solar companies from all across the country. With these tools you can be confident that the solar company you choose will give you the quality service and support you need.

Auric Solar is proud to be the most positively reviewed solar company in the nation by our customers on SolarReviews.com, along with high ratings from our customers on Facebook and Google.

Are they focused on quality or being a “bargain brand?”

When it comes to hiring installers or sourcing solar panels, there are plenty of solar companies that cut corners. There are few things as essential to our everyday lives as electricity. While there are some things in life where cutting corners might make sense, making sure your power system is installed to the highest standards and your solar panels are of the highest build quality is central to having a solar system you can count on. Finding out if your solar panels are built for a bargain overseas or carefully constructed in North America is important in determining their reliability. Additionally, make sure your solar company is investing in having their technicians certified by the industry’s gold standard for training, the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP).

Auric Solar is focused on quality. Our panels are built in North America by one of the most reliable and innovative solar energy manufacturers. Our head technician was an advisor to the President of the United States in developing a solar training program for veterans. And we help our technicians become NABCEP certified so that you can trust your installation is done to the highest standards in the industry.

What happens after they’ve installed your solar panels?

While installing your solar panels takes a fairly short amount of time, the length of time you need them to work is much longer. When investing in a product that you are planning to get decades of use out of, going with a company that will take care of you long after they’ve installed your panels is a smart choice. Some companies simply install your panels and leave you to fend for yourself. Finding a company that offers warranties and services after you’ve become their customer is good way to ensure you are getting a quality product.

At Auric Solar, all of our customers receive free annual system check-ups. We also include an industry leading 10-year warranty on all of our installations. Additionally, our customer service team monitors your solar array and will contact you if your system runs into energy production issues. And when it comes time to claim your tax credits, we help you with all the paperwork.

Meet with an energy consultant.

Everyone’s energy consumption is different. The size of your home, the amount of people living inside, your home’s design, the environmental surroundings, and many other factors play a role in how much power you need. Be wary of companies that give you a quote before taking the time to understand your situation. Otherwise, you might find that you’ve been over promised and they’ve under delivered.

Auric takes your energy seriously. We don’t believe in shady sales tactics. That’s why we are committed to designing each system customized to each customer’s power needs. By focusing on your individual needs, we will be able to tell you if solar makes sense for you. We firmly believe that the best way to do business is to always recommend what will be in your best interest.
