Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . Adding solar-powered products to your home is a good investment that will help you become more environmentally responsible and less dependent on oil and gas. But it will require a bit of preparation before the system is installed. We’ve mapped out the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning in Upland. Just call or use our online scheduler , and we’ll walk you 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, 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 Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning representative will help determine 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 Upland Homeowner’s Association, you could 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 need a brand new internet connection. It only requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s constantly on so you can utilize the system’s web-based performance monitoring service. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies frequently 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 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 easy . We should also mention the savings you’ll add up when the system is in place.
