Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . Adding solar-powered systems to your home is a great investment that will help you become more environmentally responsible and less dependent on oil and gas. But it does require a little preparation prior to installing the system. We’ve outlined the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning in Bossier City. Just call or book your appointment using our online scheduler , and we’ll come over to 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, which means the roof needs enough space that’s almost shade-free to place the panels. Each module requires 15 square feet of roof space. Your Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning 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 Bossier City Homeowner’s Association, you might 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 need an elaborate new internet connection. It simply requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s never turns off so you can utilize the system’s web-based performance monitoring capabilities. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies frequently have solar rebates and incentive policies to help reduce the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to see if the utility offers net-metering, which will let you get credit for extra electricity your SunSource system generates. Our team can help you find and fill out these forms. With these easy steps, getting started with solar is a cinch . We should also mention the savings you’ll rack up when the system is in place. If you have other questions or concerns prior to your solar product installation, just call Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning at 800-COOLING.
