Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve settled on adding a solar energy system to your home. Now what? Thanks to our simple list, getting started with solar in York is a breeze. But if you have additional questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 717-383-4479. Step 1: Call Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning in York for a consultation, or make your appointment online. We’ll walk you through our detailed planning checklist to decide whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Determine if your roof is large enough and gets enough sun. Each solar panel takes up 15 square feet of surface area. Our professionals can help you decide how many modules you will need or want. Also, your roof needs to be essentially 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 York neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may need 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 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 Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and inspect your home’s distribution panel to make sure you have the required specifications. You may want to contact your utility company and see if a net-metering program is an option. Net-metering enables you to receive credit for a portion of the 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 plenty to do to prepare for a SunSource® Home Energy System, but after it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills shrink. Curious about how much you can save? Call Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning at 717-383-4479 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.
