Do Solar Panels Increase the Value of Your Home?

How do Solar Panels increase the value of my property?

With home buyers becoming more and more eco-friendly and cost-conscious, the demand for solar panels is higher than ever before. Installing solar panels can increase the value of a home. According to studies, homes that have solar panels installed are valued at an average of four to five per cent higher than those without them. This is because installing solar panels can reduce utility bills and add to the overall attractiveness of the home for prospective buyers. In addition, depending on local regulations, solar panels may qualify for property tax credits or other incentives.

Initial Cost

It is estimated that over a million homes in the UK have solar panels installed on them, and with costs for an average household just under £6,000, it’s easy to understand why. Solar panel prices have even declined significantly since 2014 when the average cost for a set of panels was around £8,00. So now more than ever before is the perfect time to make use of this reliable and renewable energy source.

Can Adding Solar Ever Decrease Home Value?

Adding solar panels to your property will not decrease its value, this has become a belief due to the appearance of the way some solar panels are installed. If this is a concern to you, then you can have the panels integrated into your current roof. Regardless of how they are displayed, the benefits of solar far exceed any perceived negative thoughts towards them. Depending on the area you live in, the increase in the value of your property may be slightly lower than others.

Energy Efficient

Overall, solar panels can be a cost-effective way to add value to a home while also improving energy efficiency and reducing the home’s carbon footprint.
