Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve decided to add a solar energy system to your house. Now, how do you know where to begin? Thanks to a short list we’ve made for you here, getting started with solar in Orrville is easy. But if you have more questions, just give us a call at 330-821-8432 . Step 1: Call Daniel's Heating - Cooling & Electric in Orrville for a consultation, or schedule one 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 takes up 15 square feet of surface area. Our team can help you choose how many modules you will need or want. In addition, your roof needs to be relatively clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is best, and we will perform tests to determine your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Orrville neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may ask you to submit your solar power installation plans ahead of time. Step 4: Upgrade your internet service. You’ll need an internet connection that’s always on and combined with a broadband router to take advantage of the SunSource performance monitoring service. Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your professional from Daniel's Heating - Cooling & Electric will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and look at your home’s distribution panel to make sure you meet the product specifications. You may want to call your utility company and see if a net-metering program exists. Net-metering lets you receive credit for a portion of the electricity generated by your solar energy system. The utility company will also let you know whether your solar products will qualify for rebates or incentives*. There’s a lot to do to prepare for a SunSource® Home Energy System, but when it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills decrease. Want an idea of how much you could save? Call Daniel's Heating - Cooling & Electric at 330-821-8432 if you have additional 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.
