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 eco-friendly and less dependent on the utility company. But it does require a little preparation before the system can be installed. We’ve outlined the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning in Hattiesburg. 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, so the roof will need enough space that’s virtually shade-free to place the panels. Each module requires 15 square feet of roof space. Your Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning representative will help you decide 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 Hattiesburg Homeowner’s Association, you might need to share 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 only 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 abilities. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies commonly have solar rebates and incentive opportunities 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 allow you to get credit for extra electricity your SunSource system generates. Our team can help you find and fill out these forms. With these few steps, getting started with solar is a cinch . Don’t let us forget to mention the savings you’ll rack up when the system is in place.
