Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . Adding solar-powered products to your home is a good investment that will help you become more environmentally responsible and less dependent on the utility company. But it will require some 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 Bell Air Conditioning Inc. in Belton. Just call or book your appointment using 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, so the roof will need enough space that’s almost shade-free to place the panels. Each module takes up 15 square feet of roof space. Your Bell Air Conditioning Inc. representative will help you decide how many solar panels you need to install to produce enough energy for your home. Step 3: Investigate possible building restrictions. If you’re a member of a neighborhood or Belton Homeowner’s Association, you might 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 constantly on so you can make use of the system’s web-based performance monitoring service. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies usually have solar rebates and incentive programs to help reduce the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to know if the utility offers net-metering, which will let you get credit for extra electricity your SunSource system generates. Our professionals can help you find and fill out these forms. With these simple steps, getting started with solar is easy . We should also mention the savings you’ll rack up after the system is in place.
