Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve settled on adding a solar energy system to your home. Now, how do you know where to begin? Thanks to our simple list, getting started with solar in Saint Marys is easy. But if you ever have questions, just give us a call at 912-208-2470. Step 1: Call Turner Brothers Heating & Air Conditioning in Saint Marys for a consultation, or make your appointment online. We’ll explain our detailed planning checklist to decide whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Find out if your roof is big enough and gets enough sun. Each solar panel requires 15 square feet of surface area. Our experts can help you determine how many modules you will need or want for your house. Also, your roof needs to be relatively clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is ideal, and we will perform tests to determine your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Saint Marys neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may need you to submit your solar power plans prior to installation. Step 4: Upgrade your internet service. You’ll need an internet connection that’s always on and joined with a broadband router to take advantage of the SunSource performance monitoring service. Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your representative at Turner Brothers Heating & Air Conditioning will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and test your home’s distribution panel to make sure you have all the necessary specifications. You may want to contact your utility company and see if a net-metering program is an option. Net-metering lets you receive credit for a portion of the electricity generated by your solar energy system. The utility company can also tell you whether your solar products will qualify for rebates or incentives*. There’s plenty to do to prepare for a SunSource® Home Energy System, but when it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills shrink. Want an idea of how much you could save? Call Turner Brothers Heating & Air Conditioning at 912-208-2470 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.
