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 fossil fuels. But it will require some preparation before the system can be installed. We’ve mapped out the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with B & B Heating & Cooling in Florissant. 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, 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 B & B Heating & Cooling representative will let you know how many solar panels you need to install to have enough energy for your home. Step 3: Investigate possible building restrictions. If you’re a member of a neighborhood or Florissant Homeowner’s Association, you may need to share 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 a brand new internet connection. It only requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s constantly on so you can take advantage of the system’s web-based performance monitoring capabilities. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies usually 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 experts can help you find and fill out these forms. With these simple steps, getting started with solar is a breeze . Don’t let us forget to mention the savings you’ll add up once the system is in place.
