Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . Adding solar-powered systems to your home is a good investment that will help you become more environmentally friendly and less dependent on the utility company. But it will 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 Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp. in Midlothian. Just call or book your appointment using 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, which means the roof needs enough space that’s almost shade-free to place the panels. Each module needs 15 square feet of roof space. Your Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp. representative will help determine how many solar panels you need to install to have enough energy for your home. Step 3: Investigate possible building restrictions. If you’re a member of a neighborhood or Midlothian Homeowner’s Association, you may 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 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 usually 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 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 . We should also mention the savings you’ll rack up when the system is in place. If you have other questions or concerns leading up to your solar product installation, just call Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp. at 804-372-0313.
