Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve settled on adding 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 Homer Glen is a breeze. But if you have more questions, feel free to give us a call at 708-301-0170. Step 1: Call Pinnacle HVAC LLC in Homer Glen 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: Determine whether your roof is large enough and gets enough sun. Each solar panel takes up 15 square feet of surface area. Our team can help you determine how many modules you will need or want for your home. Additionally, your roof needs to be relatively clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is best, and our professionals will perform tests to discover your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Homer Glen neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may require 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 paired with a broadband router to take advantage of the SunSource performance monitoring service. Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your technician from Pinnacle HVAC LLC 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 check with your utility company and see if a net-metering program exists. Net-metering lets you receive credit for part 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 after it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills get smaller. Want an idea of how much you could save? Call Pinnacle HVAC LLC at 708-301-0170 if you have any 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.
