House of Solar introduces online quote calculator

House of Solar has launched a new online PV quote calculator which it says fully integrates with Google Maps.

The Bristol-based installer says it will allow homeowners to get instant and accurate estimates for solar panelling as the calculator uses postcodes to identify buildings in Google Maps.

By incorporating roof size data, slope, orientation and average electricity billing information, detailed online estimates can then be given on specifications and cost plus typical earnings from the Feed-in Tariff.

House of Solar’s managing director, Paul Beaumont, said: “The House of Solar has established a reputation for being a company that meets its customers’ needs using the highest quality products, best possible designs, and outstanding service. Our revolutionary online quotation calculator sets a new standard for the industry and moves us into an exciting new era.

“Using this quote calculator potential customers will see straight away what we can do for them, without the need for having detailed knowledge of solar panels themselves. By following a few simple steps they can obtain a detailed quote very quickly, with no pressure from a salesman in the house. They can understand the costs and benefits and, if they choose to proceed with a full site survey, do so in their own time. It puts the customer in control – just the way they like it.”
