Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . Adding solar-powered products to your home is a good investment that will help you become more environmentally responsible and less dependent on the utility company. But it can require a bit of preparation before the system can be installed. We’ve listed the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc in Pinellas County. Just call or use our online scheduler , and we’ll come over to go through our detailed solar planning checklist and figure out whether your home meets requirements for a SunSource® Home Energy System installation. Step 2: Determine the space and sunlight available on your roof. We install solar modules on your roof, which means the roof needs enough space that’s virtually shade-free to place the panels. Each module requires 15 square feet of roof space. Your Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc representative will help determine how many solar panels you need to install to generate enough energy for your home. Step 3: Investigate possible building restrictions. If you’re a member of a neighborhood or Pinellas County Homeowner’s Association, you may need to share your solar energy system installation plans ahead of time. Step 4: Make sure your internet is solar-ready. Don’t worry – the SunSource doesn’t require a fancy new internet connection. It simply requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s never turns off so you can utilize the system’s web-based performance monitoring abilities. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies frequently have solar rebates and incentive programs to help decrease the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to ask if the utility offers net-metering, which will allow you to get credit for surplus electricity your SunSource system generates. Our experts can help you find and fill out these forms. With these simple steps, getting started with solar is easy . We should also mention the savings you’ll rack up when the system is in place.
