Did You Know?
One of the most common items our clients are wanting to add to their new home these days is Solar Panels.
Even though Solar electricity and solar hot water have been around for a long time the Government have brought it back to our attention with incentives and rebates to add the systems to your home.
More recently with the rising electricity rates we have started to see a trend with adding these types of systems to new homes to save money on installation down the track and great ways to reduce your power bill from the day of handover.
While most household appliances will come with an instruction manual or maintenance guideline to remind you when things need replacing, servicing or cleaning but this is often not the case with solar panels.
The inside of a home gets a clean at least weekly and after storms you can see the debris scattered throughout the yard and are usually quick to clean that up, it seems we all seems to neglect one of our biggest money savers, solar panels.
While many factors affect how much electricity your solar panels will produce, dirty solar panels can be one of the biggest, and easiest to fix.
Did you know dirt, dust and even bird droppings contribute to preventing sunlight from reaching the solar cells in your solar panels.
The dirtier the panels are, the lower the amount of electricity they will produce. And with all the recent storm activity we have had even just this year can you be sure your panels are as efficient as they could be?
Clean panels will produce more electricity, giving you an improved return on your investment for many years to come.
A simple clean can help you to maximise the potential power output by reducing the build-up of surface dust and debris, ensuring that maximum sunlight reaches the panels.
Take a look at our Stroud Homes Solar Solutions flyer and let me know if you would like to add a Solar PV System to your new home.
Recently we held a Focus Group at our Jimboomba Woods Display Home, one for families we have built for in the past and one for people who are yet to decide on who their builder will be.
The event was a fantastic success, hosted by Peter Gilchrist – a business coach specialist. On the night attendees could speak freely about their experiences and what they appreciate about Stroud Homes and areas we can improve on.
Thanks to everyone who came and made the night worthwhile, congratulations to Tanya and Bill & Helen for winning the lucky door prize on offer of $250 worth of Bunnings Vouchers.
We have received a lot of honest feedback from both groups you have given us some great ideas on how we can be even better for you!
