Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . Adding solar-powered products to your home is a smart investment that will help you become more eco-friendly and less dependent on oil and gas. But it will require a bit of preparation prior to installing the system. We’ve listed the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. in South Beloit and Belvidere. Just call or book your appointment using 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 Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. representative will help you decide 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 South Beloit and Belvidere 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 require a brand new internet connection. It simply requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s always on so you can take advantage of the system’s web-based performance monitoring abilities. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies frequently have solar rebates and incentive policies to help offset the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to know if the utility offers net-metering, which will enable you to get credit for surplus electricity your SunSource system generates. Our professionals can help you find and fill out these forms. With these easy steps, getting started with solar is a cinch . Don’t let us forget to mention the savings you’ll accumulate after the system is in place.
