Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve made the decision to add a solar energy system to your house. Now, how do you know where to begin? Thanks to our short list below, getting started with solar in Upland is a breeze. But if you have more questions, feel free to give us a call at 909-982-5698. Step 1: Call Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning in Upland for a consultation, or set one up online. We’ll go through our detailed planning checklist to decide whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Determine if your roof has enough space and gets enough sun. Each solar panel needs 15 square feet of surface area. Our experts can help you choose how many modules you will need or want. Also, your roof needs to be essentially clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is preferred, and our professionals will perform tests to discover your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Upland neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may ask you to submit your solar power installation plans ahead of time. Step 4: Upgrade your internet service. You’ll need an internet connection that’s always on and paired 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 Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and inspect your home’s distribution panel to make sure you have the required specifications. You may want to check with your utility company and see if a net-metering program exists. Net-metering enables you to receive credit for a portion of the electricity generated by your solar energy system. The utility company will also let you know whether your solar products will qualify for rebates or incentives*. There’s plenty to do to prepare for a SunSource® Home Energy System, but once it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills get smaller. Curious about how much you can save? Call Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning at 909-982-5698 if you have more 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.
