Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve decided to add a solar energy system to your house. What’s your next move? Thanks to our simple list, getting started with solar in Redford is a breeze. But if you have additional questions, just give us a call at 313-537-8111. Step 1: Call Airtronic Heating & Cooling in Redford for a consultation, or set one up online. We’ll go through our detailed planning checklist to determine 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 professionals can help you choose how many modules you will need or want. In addition, your roof needs to be mostly 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 Redford 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 an internet connection that’s always on 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 technician from Airtronic Heating & Cooling will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and inspect 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 is an option. Net-metering lets you receive credit for extra electricity generated by your solar energy system. The utility company should also provide information on 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 once it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills decrease. Curious about how much you can save? Call Airtronic Heating & Cooling at 313-537-8111 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.
