3 Money-Saving Factors to Keep in Mind When Considering Solar Energy

residential solar

Spending hundreds of dollars every month on your utility bill? Maybe it’s about time to look at solar energy alternatives that can save money and reduce your carbon footprint at the same time.

Solar energy is without a doubt one of the most popular alternatives in the market today. Traditional heating and air conditioning drain your finances with no reward on your investment. Meanwhile, state government programs across the country are currently “incentivizing” solar energy; this means there are a number of reasons you should consider investing sooner rather than later.

 

Significant Savings

Investing in solar energy means that you may be eligible for government tax cuts and rebates. South Carolina residents can receive a range of state and federal income tax credits for switching over to solar energy. Keep track of your certification and installation records as well as receipts for equipment purchased.

State vs. Federal

State incentives vary based on local governments, but federal incentives on renewable energy range from wind power to fuel cells to solar energy. There is no maximum incentive cap placed on solar energy at the federal level very good news for homeowners looking to use solar energy for their home.

 

Eligibility

Eligibility for state tax credits is determined by approval from a utility agreement. This alternative fuel source can be used to generate heat and electricity but must be evaluated for performance standards by an approved entity before federal tax rebates can be delivered. If your photo-voltaic system is not connected to the grid, the taxpayer is responsible for personally certifying compliance with local codes.

We've had a service contract with Carolina Comfort off and on for years. We used another company one time and... immediately regretted it. We had to call CC in to fix that work and decided we'd never go with anyone else again. Because of that, we had them do the HVAC inspection on our new home and also got them to do a second opinion after the buyer of our old home provided their own HVAC inspection report from someone else. It saved us from doing some unnecessary work. The technicians are always friendly, respectful of our home, and explain everything really well. Would absolutely recommend using Carolina Comfort.read more

Took the time to figure out and then fix the problem. Really seemed to care and wanted to get it right. Took two... visits and I specifically asked for the same technician for the second visit. Problem has been reoccurring for quite some time and I have not had luck getting it repaired correctly working with other companies.read more

Highest recommendation for Carolina Comfort! I hired them to replace a nearly 20-year-old split HVAC system with a new... 3.5 ton AC and 80% gas furnace. Dan was excellent to work with on a solution that met my every expectation. Mike, Brandan, Jason and the entire install crew did a fantastic, beautiful job. Don't hesitate to hire these folks - I look forward to working with them in the future.read more

The owner Richard Mitchell is very rude while on the phone. Thinks just because he is a business owner for so many... years that he can speak to people rudely while trying to fix an issue. Poor excuse and will gladly take my contracts elsewhere.read more

I bought a mini-split (heating and air) unit for my room over in March 2018. They came very quickly and installed the... unit. I have been very happy with the installation, service and performance of the unit. Carolina Comfort came back for a complimentary service check and said that I have have another complimentary service check left. Staff was very professional and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this company.read more
