Bob Heinmiller Solar Solutions Overview

Bob Heinmiller Solar Solutions is a family-run solar panel installation company based in Orlando, Florida. The company was born in 2011 and makes up a part of the Bob Heinmiller group of companies, along with its sister company Bob Heinmiller Air Conditioning, Inc. The company takes great pride in being family operated and wants to provide their customers with an honest, reliable and bespoke service.

Bob Heinmiller Solar Solutions aim to cater for any of your solar panel requirements and are the preferred contractor for the Orlando Utilities Commission. Due to their small operation size, the company has not gained a high number of customer reviews, which is something that potential customers should bear in mind.


Bob Heinmiller Solar Solutions LLC Services and Specifics

Specific Solar Panels Offered

The company is known for providing tier-one solar PV systems that include the world-famous Panasonic solar panels.


Panasonic Solar Panels

Panasonic Solar panels have been around since 1975, and is one of the most recognizable names in the solar industry. The company specializes in creating the half-cut HIT Module solar cell which is used in their newest line of solar panels, the EverVolt series.

Photovoltaic solar panels are one of the most used types of solar panels. A number of solar cells will make up the photovoltaic panel that is connected to a convertor. The absorbed sunlight will produce a direct current that is changed into an alternating current. These types of panels will generally have an efficiency of 20% and their area approximately 1m2. They are stylish with a black hue and in comparison to a Polycrystalline panel, they are more efficient so a much better long term investment. 


Specific Types of Solar Offered

Residential Systems:

The company serves both residential and commercial clients promising to provide cost-effective and cutting edge technology in all their products. Services include:

  • Solar Photovoltaic Panel Systems – design, installation and troubleshooting
  • Solar air conditioners and heat pump systems installed and serviced
  • New high efficiency air conditioning installations and upgrades
  • Air scrubbers and whole house surge protection systems
  • Energy-efficient pool pumps and solar heaters
  • Solar attic fans, HVAC and ventilation systems


Commercial Systems:

This service is designed for business organizations. Businesses can benefit from lower overhead costs which can improve their profits while also reducing their environmental impact.  


Installation Costs and Process


Florida is widely considered one of the best states for solar power generation in the US, which makes it much cheaper than in some other states. The average cost per watt in Florida ranges from $2.30 – $2.85, compared to other states that average around $3.50 per watt. Therefore, a typical 5kW solar system should cost anywhere between $10,250 and $13,000 to install.

The company, being a small operation, will provide competitive packages for your solar panel needs. However, should anything go wrong then this is where we find this company to lack on their service. For example, they will not charge you anything if an installed product is faulty and will replace it under manufacturer’s warranty which is for one year – but they will charge you all over again to install the new panel.

This doesn’t seem very fair for the customer in our eyes – you have to pay to install a new panel which is the pitfall of a small family owned company. They simply do not have enough staff to rectify the fault without charging you to cover their costs. In comparison to some of their competitors in the area, they also do not offer any monthly payment options either.

However, while the company has receive some grievances regarding maintenance costs, those issues make up a very small portion of the feedback the company has received, with the vast majority of customer expressing that the company’s services are affordable and on par with most of its competitors.

Bob Heinmiller Solar Solutions does provide maintenance services for its installations, and solar panels carry a 25-year warranty from the date of installation. The company also provides a 30-year labor and roof penetration warranty.

However, based on the customer feedback, these services do come at a cost for the company’s contractors to come out to the property for inspection. There are also costs involved with the dismantling and replacing of solar panels, which customers should be aware of prior to taking on the company’s service.

There is no indication that their repairs and maintenance are anything special compared to other companies that offer the same services free of charge; therefore, we urge potential customer to conduct thorough due diligence and comparisons before making a final decision.

The SolarEmpower view

In our expert opinion Bob Heinmiller Solar Solutions LLC provides excellent service with exceptional care for their customers up to installation but just fails to some extent to provide the same level of service after the installation has been completed due to the cost factor involved with maintaining and repairing systems. While this is not sufficient reason to disregard the company as an option altogether, it is enough for us to advise caution when considering the company.

Buyer Beware! I purchased an…
Buyer Beware! I purchased an 8-panel solar pool system in 2019. In less than 3 years there was a complete system failure. When the first 3 panels failed after 2 years, August 2021, I paid $115 to replace the panels. A few months later, June 2022, the other 5 panels failed, and they charged me $575 to replace. They claimed they mischarged me originally, but I confirmed with two people in the company that was their normal fee. Based on the warranty I could not go elsewhere so they took complete advantage. Even claiming that they recorded me saying that I agreed to the price. They didn’t mention the several calls complaining about the price prior and the promise to complain to the BBB and State of Florida for unethical behavior and price gouging. I paid twice to install 8 panels in less than 3 years. They do not stand behind the quality of their products.
