Since 2012, the U.S. solar market has grown 76 percent, and shows no signs of slowing down. If you haven't considered the use of solar power in your home before, now is a great time to start.

But in case you're not yet convinced, consider the following four benefits that solar power has to offer your home:

Environmental impact: According to Energy Informative, the average residential solar system offsets about 100,000 pounds of carbon dioxide over 20 years. This is the carbon equivalent of driving a car for 100,000 miles. Although solar panels may not seem like much of a significant change, they have been a proven emission reducer, and are seen as one of the best emerging clean energy players throughout the world. Increasing home value: As home prices increase, many buyers are looking to purchase a home that will help them save money in the future. Solar panels decrease monthly utility bills. In addition, a study conducted by the  National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) found that homes with solar panels sell 20 percent faster and for 17 percent more money than those without them. Money savings: Data from One Block Off The Grid has found that adding solar panels to your home can save owners over $100 a month in many states. Performance: Solar panels usually come with a warranty that saves those who install even more money. SolarMax Technology offers a 25 year warranty on panels, 25 year warranty on inverters, and 25 year warranty on workmanship.
