Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve settled on adding 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 Stuart is easy. But if you have additional questions, just give us a call at 772-228-6980. Step 1: Call Breathe Healthier Air in Stuart 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 whether your roof has enough space and gets enough sun. Each solar panel takes up 15 square feet of surface area. Our professionals can help you determine how many modules you will need or want for your home. 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 discover your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Stuart neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may require you to submit your solar power plans prior to installation. Step 4: Upgrade your internet service. You’ll need an internet connection that’s always on and paired 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 Breathe Healthier Air 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 is an option. Net-metering allows you to receive credit for extra 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 decrease. Want an idea of how much you could save? Call Breathe Healthier Air at 772-228-6980 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.
