Shingles Solar Panel – What Are They?
Solar shingles are different from solar panels because they aren’t panels at all; they are actual shingles that are installed just like a roof while providing the same functionality as a solar panel. At Feazel, we are proud to offer GAF’s Timberline Solar™ roofing system, the very first nailable solar shingle. Features of solar shingles include:
- Easy Installation
- Water-Shedding Capability
- 130 MPH Wind Resistance
- A Sleek Appearance
- Multiple Color Options
How Solar Shingle Installation is Different from Solar Panels
To understand how solar shingle installation is different, first know how solar panels are installed. Solar panels are installed onto a rack that is attached to your existing roof. Solar shingles replace the roof itself, and they are mounted directly to the decking. Moreover, this nailable shingle comes with a dual warranty as both a roofing shingle and as a solar panel!
Solar Shingle FAQs
Investing in a solar roofing system is a big step, and we are happy to answer your questions to help you get the best product for your home’s needs.
Do I need to replace my roof if I want to add solar shingles?
The short answer is, yes. When it’s time to get a new roof, then why not go the extra mile by installing products that not only protect you home, but also provide clean energy? That’s the great thing about GAF Timberline Solar™ Shingles. They are both a roofing shingle and a solar panel!
How is the GAF Timberline Solar™ Shingle different from the Tesla Roof?
Although both the GAF Timberline Solar™ Shingle and the Tesla Roof require a complete roof replacement, there are several differences. The GAF energy system installs just like a regular, nailable shingle. This includes a mix of solar shingles and standard asphalt shingles, and installation is quick and easy. The Tesla Roof is entirely made of Tesla tiles, and installation can take weeks to complete depending on the size of the roof. GAF products also come with stronger warranties, and they are less expensive.
Can I use solar tax credits with GAF Solar Shingles?
Yes! GAF Solar Shingles qualify for federal tax credits. At Feazel, we recommend that you speak with a tax preparer to get information about the tax credit options available in your area.
