Study: Solar Panels Increase Property Value

Home improvements often substantially increase the resale value of the property. However, not all improvements are equally effective in this regard. For some potential homebuyers, updates in the kitchen or bathroom are a very big plus, but others may not value this very much.

What are the home improvements that will pay off for you? Solar panels will for sure. Bathroom designs don’t appeal to everyone, but homes with renewable energy sources will. According to an Appraisal Institute study, home improvements that save money on utility bills significantly grow property value. Furthermore, they also help to sell a property more quickly.
Instead of investing thousands of dollars into outdoor landscaping and bathroom upgrades that no one except you may care about, you are better off putting money into something that generates a larger return on investment.

The renewable energy source of choice for individual homeowners these days is solar energy. Efficient thin-film characterization tools that allow real-time quality control result in affordable solar panels.

Solar home improvement is a win-win, both for the environment and for your property resale value.

Solar Panels Save Money and the Environment

Most likely, every time you pass a home with solar panels installed on the roof, you dream of switching your home to solar energy too. Thanks to modern technology, solar power is not just a dream anymore.

Besides saving money and reducing your carbon footprint, solar power increases your home value too.

Many companies provide solar panel installation to private individuals now. They will come to your home and their engineers will customize the solar system according to your needs.

Industrial Caster Wheels

Wheels come in many sizes and can be made from various materials. They are not only used on cars, trucks, and buses, but also on small and large machines, and other industrial equipment. Some industries, including suppliers to real estate construction, even need heavy-duty wheels for dollies and bins that can haul weights up to 50,000 pounds. These wheels are called industrial casters and are designed and made by caster manufacturers in Michigan for domestic and international customers.

Industrial casters usually have a cast iron core and a plastic or rubber tire. Forged steel casters can carry the heaviest loads and can be used in environments with temperatures up to 800 degrees Fahrenheit.

Industrial caster wheels also have to absorb shock, because heavy loads are often dropped into carts or dollies. Operating speed, floor conditions and chemical resistance are additional factors that need to be considered when choosing casters. Furthermore, ergonomics and noise reduction are important for employee health and also need to be taken into account. All these factors need to be balanced when engineers design functional and long lasting industrial caster wheels.

Caster Concepts will be at ProMat 2015 in Chicago, March 23-26, 2015.
