Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . Adding solar-powered systems to your home is a great investment that will help you become more environmentally friendly and less dependent on oil and gas. But it will require some preparation prior to installing the system. We’ve mapped out the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Holiday Heating & Air Conditioning in Ballwin. Just call or set up an appointment using our online scheduler , and we’ll come over to go through our detailed solar planning checklist and discover 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 almost shade-free to place the panels. Each module needs 15 square feet of roof space. Your Holiday Heating & Air Conditioning representative will help determine 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 Ballwin 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 necessitate a brand new internet connection. It only requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s never turns off so you can take advantage of the system’s web-based performance monitoring service. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies commonly have solar rebates and incentive policies 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 enable you to get credit for surplus electricity your SunSource system generates. Our professionals can help you find and fill out these forms. With these simple steps, getting started with solar is a breeze . And we didn’t even mention the savings you’ll add up when the system is in place.
