Installing solar energy panels in your home has become a growing trend. And the household solar panel systems are usually easy to install, so some homeowners even install the systems by themselves. However, working on the rooftop can be dangerous, so you need to do a bit of work beforehand to make sure you won't get hurt during the installation. If you are also considering installing your own solar system, read the following tips to help you safely install it.

1. Check Components for Quality Problems

Solar photovoltaic modules are the basis of installing solar panel systems. When you receive the installation materials, you must check the components for damage at first. If you find some problems until the  installation process, you will not only spend much money, but also waste your own time. Moreover, if there is a component damage and you do not notice it in the first time, it could cause a short circuit during the installation process and may lead to an electric shock.



2. Wear A Pair of Shoes With Good Grip

Many homes have sloping rooftops. It's difficult enough to balance on such a steep slope, especially when you have to move solar panels and other components. At this time, if you have a pair of shoes with strong grip, it will clamp the roof tiles. Even if you need to tiptoe, this pair of shoes will still help you find balance. These shoes are not expensive and almost everyone can afford them.

3. Hire Artificial Lifts or Scaffolds

Renting an artificial lift or a scaffold is also a good choice to improve safety. They can help you carry heavy solar panels to the rooftop. Renting one of them not only meets your temporary needs, but also doesnt require you to spend money maintaining it. Both methods can greatly guarantee your safety.


4. Ensure Circuit Safety 

We all know that electric power is very strong. The wiring of the solar energy panels can give you electric shocks if not handled properly during the installation. Be sure to read the instructions and follow the solar energy supplier's guidelines before installing the panels. The most direct way to avoid electric shock is to wear insulating gloves and make sure you don't have any obvious conductive items around you. You'd better not power up your solar panels before you have completed all the installation steps. This will minimize the risk.

5. Ask Friends or Family members for Help

Installing a household solar system is also a time-consuming project. With the help of family and friends, it can not only reduce the installation time but also ensure everyone's safety. Even if anything happens, you can get timely treatment.
