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 environmentally friendly and less dependent on fossil fuels. But it will require some 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 Polestar Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning in Olathe. 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, so the roof will need enough space that’s nearly shade-free to place the panels. Each module needs 15 square feet of roof space. Your Polestar Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning representative will let you know 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 Olathe 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 necessitate a brand new internet connection. It simply requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s never turns off 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 commonly have solar rebates and incentive programs 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 additional electricity your SunSource system generates. Our professionals can help you find and fill out these forms. With these few steps, getting started with solar is easy . Don’t let us forget to mention the savings you’ll accumulate when the system is in place.
