Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve settled on adding a solar energy system to your home. Now what? Thanks to a short list we’ve made for you here, getting started with solar in Florissant is a breeze. But if you have additional questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 314-838-9800. Step 1: Call B & B Heating & Cooling in Florissant for a consultation, or set one up online. We’ll explain our detailed planning checklist to determine whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Determine whether 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 house. Additionally, your roof needs to be mostly clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is preferred, and our professionals will perform tests to discover your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Florissant neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may ask you to submit your solar power plans before the system is installed. Step 4: Upgrade your internet service. You’ll need internet that’s always connected and joined with a broadband router to make use of the SunSource performance monitoring service. Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your professional from B & B Heating & Cooling will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and test your home’s distribution panel to make sure you meet the product specifications. You may want to call your utility company and see if a net-metering program exists. Net-metering enables you to receive credit for part of the 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 plenty to do to prepare for a SunSource® Home Energy System, but after it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills get smaller. Want an idea of how much you could save? Call B & B Heating & Cooling at 314-838-9800 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.
