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 eco-friendly and less dependent on the utility company. But it will require some preparation prior to installing the system. We’ve mapped out the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Quality Refrigeration in Baltimore. Just call or use 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 virtually shade-free to place the panels. Each module takes up 15 square feet of roof space. Your Quality Refrigeration representative will let you know 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 Baltimore Homeowner’s Association, you may 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 require an elaborate 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 frequently have solar rebates and incentive programs 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 enable you to get credit for extra electricity your SunSource system generates. Our experts can help you find and fill out these forms. With these easy steps, getting started with solar is a cinch . And we didn’t even mention the savings you’ll rack up once the system is in place.
