Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve made the decision to add a solar energy system to your home. Now what? Thanks to our simple list, getting started with solar in Carson City is simple. But if you have more questions, just give us a call at 775-882-8154. Step 1: Call Anderson Heating & A/C in Carson City for a consultation, or schedule one online. We’ll explain our detailed planning checklist to determine whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Determine if your roof is large enough and gets enough sun. Each solar panel needs 15 square feet of surface area. Our professionals can help you determine how many modules you will need or want for your house. Also, your roof needs to be relatively clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is best, and our techs will perform tests to discover your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Carson City neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may ask you to submit your solar power plans before the system is installed. Step 4: Upgrade your internet service. You’ll need internet that’s always connected and joined with a broadband router to take advantage of the SunSource performance monitoring service. Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your technician from Anderson Heating & A/C will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and inspect your home’s distribution panel to make sure you have all the necessary specifications. You may want to contact your utility company and see if a net-metering program is available. Net-metering lets you receive credit for a portion of the electricity generated by your solar energy system. The utility company can also tell you whether your solar products will qualify for rebates or incentives*. There’s a lot to do to prepare for a SunSource® Home Energy System, but when it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills decrease. Want an idea of how much you could save? Call Anderson Heating & A/C at 775-882-8154 if you have additional questions about getting started with solar. *Note: Most rebates and incentives that make a solar energy system more affordable are only available when you’re system is grid-tied.
