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 eco-friendly and less dependent on the utility company. But it can require a bit of preparation prior to installing the system. We’ve outlined the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Anderson Heating & A/C in Carson City. 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 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, which means the roof needs enough space that’s nearly shade-free to place the panels. Each module takes up 15 square feet of roof space. Your Anderson Heating & A/C 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 Carson City Homeowner’s Association, you could need to submit 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 an elaborate 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 programs to help offset 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 additional electricity your SunSource system generates. Our team can help you find and fill out these forms. With these few steps, getting started with solar is easy . And we didn’t even mention the savings you’ll rack up after the system is in place. If you have other questions or concerns before your solar product installation, just call Anderson Heating & A/C at 775-882-8154.
