Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . Adding solar-powered products to your home is a great investment that will help you become more environmentally friendly and less dependent on fossil fuels. But it can require some preparation before the system is installed. We’ve outlined the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Paso Robles Heating and Air in Paso Robles. Just call or book your appointment using our online scheduler , and we’ll go through our detailed solar planning checklist and determine 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 takes up 15 square feet of roof space. Your Paso Robles Heating and Air representative will let you know how many solar panels you need to install to produce enough energy for your home. Step 3: Investigate possible building restrictions. If you’re a member of a neighborhood or Paso Robles Homeowner’s Association, you might need to show them 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 need an elaborate new internet connection. It simply requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s constantly on so you can make use of the system’s web-based performance monitoring abilities. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies usually have solar rebates and incentive programs to help decrease the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to know if the utility offers net-metering, which will let you get credit for surplus electricity your SunSource system generates. Our professionals can help you find and fill out these forms. With these easy steps, getting started with solar is a cinch . Don’t let us forget to mention the savings you’ll add up when the system is in place.
