Here at Woodstock Roofing, we are delighted to help protect the environment by installing top-quality roof-mounted solar panels in the Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and Gloucestershire area. Of course, installing solar panels doesn’t just help to save the environment: it also saves you money. But how exactly can you get the best value for money from your solar panels? As an expert roofing contractor, we know everything there is to know about roof-mounted solar panels, so we’ve come up with some tips to help you ensure you get the most from yours.

1. Prioritise the side of your roof that receives the most sun

You may want to install solar panels on both sides of your slanting roof. Unfortunately, this isn’t always possible, either because of structural issues or simply because of the cost. In this case, you should make sure you have solar panels installed on the side of your roof that receives the most sunlight. The more sunlight your panels receive, the more energy they can produce, thereby driving down your electricity bill and saving you money.

2. Switch from gas to electricity

If you have a gas oven or an older heating system that uses gas, you should consider switching to an electrical version. Solar panels can save you money on your electricity bill, but not on your gas bill. Consequently, it makes sense to switch as many of your home’s systems as possible from gas to electricity. When you use those systems, you can use some of the power generated by your solar panels and therefore reduce the amount you spend on external fuel or energy for them.

3. Have maintenance carried out regularly
