Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . Adding solar-powered systems to your home is a good investment that will help you become more eco-friendly and less dependent on oil and gas. But it will require some preparation before the system can be installed. We’ve listed the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Econo Air in Brea. Just call or book your appointment using our online scheduler , and we’ll 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, which means the roof needs enough space that’s virtually shade-free to place the panels. Each module requires 15 square feet of roof space. Your Econo Air 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 Brea 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 necessitate a brand new internet connection. It only requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s always on so you can make use 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 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 let you 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 . Don’t let us forget to mention the savings you’ll add up when the system is in place.
