Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . Adding solar-powered equipment to your home is a good investment that will help you become more environmentally friendly and less dependent on fossil fuels. But it will require a bit of preparation before the system can be installed. We’ve listed the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Comfort Zone Inc in Cape Coral. Just call or set up an appointment using our online scheduler , and we’ll come over to go 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, meaning the roof needs enough space that’s nearly shade-free to place the panels. Each module takes up 15 square feet of roof space. Your Comfort Zone Inc representative will help you decide 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 Cape Coral 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 require a fancy new internet connection. It just 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 usually have solar rebates and incentive programs to help decrease the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to see if the utility offers net-metering, which will enable you to get credit for extra electricity your SunSource system generates. Our professionals can help you find and fill out these forms. With these easy steps, getting started with solar is a breeze . Don’t let us forget to mention the savings you’ll accumulate once the system is in place.
