Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve settled on adding a solar energy system. What’s your next move? Thanks to our short list below, getting started with solar in Greencastle is a breeze. But if you have additional questions, just give us a call at 717-597-9900 . Step 1: Call Premier HVAC Services LLC in Greencastle for a consultation, or set one up online. We’ll walk you through our detailed planning checklist to figure out whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Determine whether your roof has enough space and gets enough sun. Each solar panel takes up 15 square feet of surface area. Our team can help you decide how many modules you will need or want for your home. Also, your roof needs to be relatively clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is best, and our techs will perform tests to discover your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Greencastle neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may need 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 combined 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 Premier HVAC Services LLC will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and test your home’s distribution panel to make sure you have all the necessary specifications. You may want to check with your utility company and see if a net-metering program is available. Net-metering allows you to 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 when it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills decrease. Want to get an idea of your savings beforehand? Call Premier HVAC Services LLC at 717-597-9900 if you have more 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.
