Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . Adding solar-powered equipment to your home is a great investment that will help you become more eco-friendly and less dependent on oil and gas. 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 Superior Comfort Systems in Hendersonville. 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, so the roof will need enough space that’s nearly shade-free to place the panels. Each module needs 15 square feet of roof space. Your Superior Comfort Systems representative will let you know 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 Hendersonville Homeowner’s Association, you may need to submit 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 always on 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 offset the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to see if the utility offers net-metering, which will enable you to get credit for additional electricity your SunSource system generates. Our team can help you find and fill out these forms. With these simple steps, getting started with solar is a cinch . Don’t let us forget to mention the savings you’ll accumulate after the system is in place.
