Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve made the decision to add a solar energy system. What’s your next move? Thanks to a short list we’ve made for you here, getting started with solar in Bloomington is a breeze. But if you ever have questions, feel free to give us a call at 812-638-4045. Step 1: Call All Seasons Heating & A/C Co in Bloomington for a consultation, or schedule one online. We’ll explain our detailed planning checklist to figure out 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 needs 15 square feet of surface area. Our experts can help you choose how many modules you will need or want. Additionally, your roof needs to be essentially clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is best, and our techs will perform tests to determine your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Bloomington neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may ask you to submit your solar power plans before the system is installed. Step 4: Upgrade your internet service. You’ll need internet that’s always connected and joined with a broadband router to make use of the SunSource performance monitoring service. Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your representative at All Seasons Heating & A/C Co will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and test your home’s distribution panel to make sure you meet the product 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 once it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills decrease. Want to get an idea of your savings beforehand? Call All Seasons Heating & A/C Co at 812-638-4045 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.
