Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . Adding solar-powered equipment to your home is a great investment that will help you become more environmentally responsible and less dependent on the utility company. But it can require some 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 Air Temperature Control in Macon. Just call or use 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, meaning the roof needs enough space that’s virtually shade-free to place the panels. Each module takes up 15 square feet of roof space. Your Air Temperature Control representative will help determine how many solar panels you need to install to generate enough energy for your home. Step 3: Investigate possible building restrictions. If you’re a member of a neighborhood or Macon Homeowner’s Association, you could need to submit 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 fancy new internet connection. It just requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s always on so you can utilize the system’s web-based performance monitoring abilities. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies usually have solar rebates and incentive policies to help decrease the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to ask if the utility offers net-metering, which will let you get credit for surplus electricity your SunSource system generates. Our team can help you find and fill out these forms. With these simple steps, getting started with solar is a cinch . We should also mention the savings you’ll rack up once the system is in place. If you have other questions or concerns leading up to your solar product installation, just call Air Temperature Control at 478-784-1109.
