Solar Panels for Homes

Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels for homes are an ideal means of reducing your domestic electricity bill and enjoying clean, renewable power, all over Ireland.

Contrary to popular belief, brilliant and direct sunshine is not needed for PV solar panels for homes to produce enough power to meet a significant portion of the domestic electricity demand. That is because PV solar panels work in any daylight conditions, even if gloomy or rainy, and many actually operate more efficiently at lower temperatures – which suits the Irish climate too!

Talk to Kavanagh Engineering if you are considering PV solar panels for your home, and we will provide expert advice on the best system for you.

Detailed survey and reports

We will first carry out a site survey of your home, taking into account such considerations as:

  • Available roof, wall, or ground space
  • Aspect orientation of your roof
  • Your current annual electrical usage
  • Your geographic location
  • Your available budget

We will then provide you with quotations for a number of options as regards PV solar panels for your home. As you would expect, the ones that will be capable of producing more power will also be more expensive. By also giving you quotations for other and cheaper systems, we really are giving you the opportunity to make the best choice for you.

We will also provide you with detailed forecasts for how much electricity you could realistically expect to see produced by each system we quote for, to further help you make your decision by means of a long-term cost/benefit analysis.

Compliance with Part L of the Building Regulations

All PV solar panels for homes systems we design and install are fully compliant with Part L of the Building Regulations (2011), which deals with the conservation of fuel and energy.

The regulation itself states: ‘that a building shall be designed and constructed so as to ensure that the energy performance of the building is such as to limit the amount of energy required for the operation of the building and the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions associated with this energy use, insofar as is reasonably practicable.’

Building regulations requirements for new dwellings also prescribe that a reasonable proportion of the energy consumption to meet the energy performance of a dwelling is provided by renewable energy sources.

PV solar panel systems for homes can help meet these requirements if properly designed and installed, and at Kavanagh Engineering, we make sure to do exactly that.
