Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . Adding solar-powered products to your home is a great investment that will help you become more environmentally friendly and less dependent on the utility company. But it can require a little 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 Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC in Peoria. Just call or use our online scheduler , and we’ll walk you 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, meaning the roof needs enough space that’s nearly shade-free to place the panels. Each module requires 15 square feet of roof space. Your Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC 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 Peoria Homeowner’s Association, you may need to show them 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 constantly on so you can utilize the system’s web-based performance monitoring abilities. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies commonly have solar rebates and incentive opportunities to help decrease the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to see if the utility offers net-metering, which will allow you to get credit for extra 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 . And we didn’t even mention the savings you’ll rack up once the system is in place.
