Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve settled on adding a solar energy system to your home. Now what? Thanks to our short list below, getting started with solar in Hendersonville is simple. But if you have additional questions, feel free to give us a call at 828-775-5176. Step 1: Call Superior Comfort Systems in Hendersonville for a consultation, or schedule one online. We’ll go through our detailed planning checklist to determine whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Find out if your roof has enough space and gets enough sun. Each solar panel needs 15 square feet of surface area. Our experts can help you determine how many modules you will need or want for your home. Additionally, your roof needs to be relatively clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is preferred, and our techs will perform tests to determine your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Hendersonville neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may require you to submit your solar power plans before the system is installed. Step 4: Upgrade your internet service. You’ll need an internet connection that’s always on and combined with a broadband router to make use of the SunSource performance monitoring service. Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your technician from Superior Comfort Systems will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and inspect your home’s distribution panel to make sure you meet the product specifications. You may want to contact your utility company and see if a net-metering program is available. Net-metering enables you to receive credit for extra electricity generated by your solar energy system. The utility company should also provide information on whether your solar products will qualify for rebates or incentives*. There’s lots to do to prepare for a SunSource® Home Energy System, but when it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills decrease. Want to get an idea of your savings beforehand? Call Superior Comfort Systems at 828-775-5176 if you have more questions about getting started with solar. *Note: Most rebates and incentives that make a solar energy system more affordable are only available when you’re system is grid-tied.
