What is home performance? 

Home Performance improves its energy efficiency and indoor air quality, resulting in safer and more comfortable homes and huge savings on your energy bills.

What are the benefits of solar panels?

Solar panels are typically installed on roofs so they can absorb the sun’s rays and convert them into electricity, which in turn allows you to enjoy these benefits: 

  • Significantly reduce or even eliminate your energy bills
  • Earn tax credits and rebates
  • Help the environment by reducing your carbon footprint
  • Increase the value of your home 


To ensure that your solar panels enjoy optimal sunlight exposure, our technicians will install the panels at the right angle (close or equal to the latitude of your home) and on the south-facing side of your roof.  


Why hire All Year for your solar panel installation?

We only use solar panels from reputable manufacturers to ensure that they meet the industry’s standard in terms of productive lifespan, which is 25-30 years. (This is not to say that after this period, your solar panels will die; it only means that their output will decrease.)


We also offer a warranty and top-notch workmanship that has made us one of the leading Sacramento HVAC companies

Tax rebates and savings 

On average, homeowners with solar panels can save around $1,500 a year, or $37,000 over the course of 25 years. But, of course, there are many factors that determine your exact savings, such as your roof size and sunlight exposure. (Fortunately, the Sacramento area tops the list of places with the most sunny days.)


Aside from long-term savings, having solar panels installed on your roof means you can enjoy a 26% tax credit on installation costs until the end of 2022 or 22% in 2023. 


Additionally, you can take advantage of California’s net energy metering incentive in which you can sell your excess solar electricity to your local utility provider for 20 years.  


With all the tax rebates and metering incentives, solar panel installation is a worthwhile investment for homeowners and businesses. It’s simply a gift that keeps on giving. 


Final word on Solar Energy and Home Performance

With the energy cost continuously rising in recent years, it makes sense to invest in solar panels and other environment-friendly solutions that can improve your home performance and allow you to save thousands of dollars every year.
