SunPower by Quality Home Services Explains Solar Savings

“Masters of Quality and Service” SunPower by Quality Home Services Explains the Benefits of Saving With Solar

We sat down with the staff from SunPower by Quality Home Services to learn more about how to save money on your utility bill, receive tax credits, and increase the value of your home by going solar.

Why should people install solar in 2018?

Solar is increasingly becoming more and more popular every year for a variety of reasons. You’ll notice people everywhere such as family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors are saving money on their electric bill by utilizing solar energy. So, the question remains; if you have not installed and utilized solar for your home, what exactly has stopped you? If you are someone who wanted to go solar in 2017, but for some reason, did not get around to it, SunPower by Quality Home Services wants you to know that 2018 is the best time to consider the benefits of going solar.

How does SunPower by Quality Home Services assist homeowners with understanding the current financial benefits of going solar?

We let homeowners know the latest financial benefits that solar installation brings. Currently, solar prices are at an all-time low because of price reductions with inverters, trackers, PV modules, and labor costs. Did you know that utility rates continue to rise over time due to Time of Use charges or high usage surcharges? With utility bills steadily on the rise, people are flocking towards solar solutions. A big reason to take advantage of solar right now is the Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC), otherwise known as the Federal Solar Tax Credit. Think of the ITC tax credit as a financial payback that can help you increase your home value and save you money.

Could SunPower tell our readers more about the benefits of the Federal Solar Tax Credit?

Homeowners who install a solar system in 2018 qualify for a 30 percent solar tax credit. Also, this exact credit will drop to 26 percent after 2019, and it will continue to drop down even lower to 10 percent by the year 2021. As you can see, those who go solar are generating savings and financial benefits annually.

What other financial payback benefits can homeowners reap from using solar?

The sun shines brightly in our area. Therefore, by installing a solar system before summer starts, you can start generating energy right away! And when you generate more solar electricity than you use during the sunny months, depending on your local utility rules, you could build up solar credit with your utility. Solar credits are fantastic because they can apply directly toward your electric bills during the winter or fall months.

Does adding a solar system to my home increase my home’s market value?

Installing solar panels can increase your home’s market value by at least the cost of the solar system. According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, every dollar of energy bill savings can potentially add $20 to your home’s total market value if you put it up for sale. Not only can solar homeowners benefit from an increase in their home’s market value, but a solar system also helps many homeowners sell their home faster than homes without solar panels.

Home Magazine sat down with Noam Schimler to learn more about the eclectic products and services that they offer, as well as how they came to create their business, Pot Imports.

How did you get started in the pottery business?

We started this business about 20 years ago in the local Clovis-Fresno area. Throughout the years, we have purchased pottery from different parts of the world. Also, we visit the factories that produce the pottery to learn the process of what it takes to make a piece of art. Every piece is unique in that it is actually made from different types of earth soil. Our works of art are shaped by expert artisans from all over the world who create with various, high-quality materials. Our goal is that you connect with and find a pottery piece that resonates with you.

What services does Pot Imports offer?

Just about any walk-in customer is amazed by the sheer size of our inventory that is offered to the general public and landscape companies, interior designers, etc. We proudly carry thousands of different pottery items to choose from, like pots, vases, statues, birdbaths, wall fountains, decorative items for your home or your yard, and much more. Come on in and search through all kinds of unique pottery, from hand-crafted pieces to ceramic pieces. Each piece has its own style, and we are sure you will discover one that will catch your eye. Every pottery item we carry, no matter the shape, size or color, has a story and when you take it home with you, you become a part of that story too.

What separates you from your competitors?

We truly believe that the customer should be treated as a friend; therefore, we demonstrate hospitality on a daily basis to all customers by offering them a unique policy in our industry, an exchange policy for life which cannot be matched by anybody that we know of. Under certain circumstances, we are even willing to come to your home to give you FREE advice if you are not sure about color, size or if you simply need general ideas. We can help you find your ideal pottery collection that suits your personality and your space. It is our goal to supply you with a piece that will give you a lifetime of charm and joy.

What advice would you give to a customer when it comes to choosing the right pottery product?

Not all pottery is the same, and surely, they’re not all made from the same material. Therefore, we highly recommend that all our customers tell us about the placement of the item they intend to purchase first.

What else should our readers know about Pot Imports?

In 2001, we created the custom bubbling pot fountain, and since then, we have sold thousands of them throughout the Valley and the entire state of California. Our custom bubbling pot fountain is the perfect fit for your courtyard, front yard, or backyard space. On top of that, we offer our customers’ fountain installation and repair for a reasonable fee. We also hold customer merchandise for up to 6 months in our secure facility FREE of charge.
