Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve settled on adding a solar energy system to your house. What’s your next move? Thanks to our short list below, getting started with solar in Port Saint Lucie is simple. But if you ever have questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 772-335-3232. Step 1: Call Custom Air Systems Inc in Port Saint Lucie for a consultation, or make your appointment online. We’ll explain our detailed planning checklist to figure out whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Determine if your roof is big enough and gets enough sun. Each solar panel needs 15 square feet of surface area. Our experts can help you decide how many modules you will need or want for your home. Also, your roof needs to be essentially clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is preferred, and our techs will perform tests to discover your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Port Saint Lucie 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 paired with a broadband router to make use of the SunSource performance monitoring service. Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your professional from Custom Air Systems Inc will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and look at 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 exists. 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 when it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills get smaller. Want to get an idea of your savings beforehand? Call Custom Air Systems Inc at 772-335-3232 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.
