We recently helped a lovely couple from Seaham.

Mr & Mrs Mullen contacted us after they were looking to lower their energy bills. We started by visiting their home and assessing the couple’s energy needs and if their home was suitable for solar panel installation.

After visiting the property, we spoke with the Mullens and offered our findings. We opted for an 8-panel hybrid inverter with an additional 5kW battery storage to be installed and agreed on a suitable date for installation. We always aim to complete our solar panel installations on the same day, and this was easily achievable upon our visit to the Mullens – who are very pleased with their new solar panels.

Swish Home Improvements provided my wife and me with a comprehensive guide on using and maintaining our new solar panel system, which was very helpful. They also offered ongoing support and provided us with an app to monitor our solar panels – we can already see how much we save on our energy bills!

Mr Feeney, from Hurworth, contacted us regarding his carbon footprint.

After the assessment, we recommended a 10-panel 4kW hybrid inverter with an additional 5kW battery storage, customised to meet Mr Feeney’s specific needs. We provided a detailed breakdown of the costs and completed the installation within the same day.

“We found the team at Swish Home Improvements professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. We were particularly impressed with the quality of the solar panel system and the ongoing support provided.”

The Wildon family from Northallerton

Recently contacted our team interested in installing solar panels on their home. As our process states, we sent one of our expert installers to visit Mr & Mrs Wildon’s home and assess their energy needs and determine the suitability of their property for solar panel installation.

After the assessment, we recommended a customised solar panel system that would meet the specific energy needs of the family. The most suitable option would be a 9-panel 3.6kW; we provided the family with a detailed breakdown of the costs and explained the various financing options available. We installed the solar panels on the roof of the family’s home and connected them to their existing electrical system.

Solar panels can, also known as solar photovoltaic panels, are a popular way for homeowners to generate their own electricity, reduce their carbon footprint, and save money on their energy bills. If you live in the North East and are considering installing solar panels, you may wonder which company to use. Swish Home Improvements is a local company specialising in solar panel installation and has a reputation for delivering high-quality work.
Our team of experts are trained to install solar panels that are energy efficient and help you save money on your energy bills. With our trusted traders in the North East, we are confident you will receive the best solar energy installation.

The main benefits of solar panels include: 

Renewable energy: Solar panels use energy from the sun, a renewable energy source. This means that solar power is sustainable and will never run out.
Cost savings: Once installed, solar panels can generate free electricity, which can help reduce your energy bills. Additionally, some governments offer incentives such as tax credits or rebates to help offset the cost of installation.
Environmentally friendly: Solar panels produce clean energy with no emissions or pollutants, making them a much cleaner alternative to traditional fossil fuels.
Low maintenance: Solar panels require very little maintenance once installed, and they can last for decades with minimal upkeep.
Energy independence: Installing solar panels allows you to generate your own energy, which reduces your reliance on the electrical grid and can provide greater energy independence.
Increased property value: Installing solar panels can increase the value of your home or property, making it a wise investment in the long run.

Solar panels can still work in cloudy weather, although their efficiency is reduced. Solar panels use the energy from the sun to generate electricity, so when clouds cover the sun, less energy is available to the panels.
The amount of electricity solar panels generate in cloudy weather depends on several factors, including the clouds’ thickness, the panels’ angle, and the solar cells’ quality. Generally, thicker clouds and lower sunlight angles can decrease solar panels’ efficiency.
However, solar technology advancements have improved solar panels’ efficiency in cloudy weather. For example, some solar panels are designed to absorb light from visible and infrared spectrums, allowing them to generate electricity even on cloudy days when less visible light is available.
Additionally, some solar panels are equipped with micro-inverters, which optimise the power output of each panel. This means that even if clouds shade some panels, the other panels can continue to generate electricity at total capacity.
Overall, while solar panels work in cloudy weather, their efficiency is reduced. However, technological advancements have made them more effective at generating electricity, even on cloudy days.

Solar panels convert sunlight into electricity using photovoltaic (PV) cells made of semiconductor materials. When sunlight hits the cells, it creates an electric current directed by an internal electric field. Multiple cells are wired together to form a panel, and multiple panels can be wired together to create an array.

Most solar panels have a lifespan of around 25 to 30 years. However, the actual lifespan of a solar panel can depend on various factors, such as the quality of the panel, the installation, and the climate in which it is installed.

In many cases, the installation of solar panels on residential properties is considered “permitted development” and does not require planning permission. However, there are certain criteria and limitations that vary depending on your location and specific circumstances. Contact us for more information
