Generally, panels face south & are tilted to match the local latitude. Too weighty (2 – 4 ) lbs per square foot to be installed on a roof.

(4) Ignoring resale value. While house hunting, the idea of selling your new home may seem like a remote & distant prospect. But life often dishes out unexpected changes – such as a job or marital change, wrong size, etc. Avoid a purchase that other buyers may find undesirable or hard-to-modify features. (5) NOT hiring an Accredited Buyer’s Representative. Only a select few of real estate agents have spent the extra coursework + prior experience to keep up with latest issues and trends.
