Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . Adding solar-powered equipment to your home is a smart investment that will help you become more eco-friendly and less dependent on oil and gas. But it can require a little preparation before the system is installed. We’ve listed the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Air Houston Mechanical LLC in Huffman. Just call or use our online scheduler , and we’ll walk you through our detailed solar planning checklist and determine 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, meaning the roof needs enough space that’s almost shade-free to place the panels. Each module requires 15 square feet of roof space. Your Air Houston Mechanical LLC representative will help you decide 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 Huffman Homeowner’s Association, you could 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 require a brand new internet connection. It simply requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s always on so you can utilize the system’s web-based performance monitoring service. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies frequently have solar rebates and incentive opportunities to help reduce 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 additional electricity your SunSource system generates. Our experts can help you find and fill out these forms. With these few steps, getting started with solar is a cinch . And we didn’t even mention the savings you’ll accumulate after the system is in place.
