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 a short list we’ve made for you here, getting started with solar in Dallas is easy. But if you have additional questions, just give us a call at 469-617-3437. Step 1: Call Tri County Air Care LLC in Dallas for a consultation, or schedule one online. We’ll walk you through our detailed planning checklist to decide whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Find out if your roof is large enough and gets enough sun. Each solar panel requires 15 square feet of surface area. Our team can help you determine how many modules you will need or want. Additionally, your roof needs to be relatively clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is ideal, and we will perform tests to determine your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Dallas neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may need you to submit your solar power plans prior to installation. Step 4: Upgrade your internet service. You’ll need internet that’s always connected 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 technician from Tri County Air Care LLC will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and inspect your home’s distribution panel to make sure you have all the necessary specifications. You may want to call your utility company and see if a net-metering program is available. Net-metering enables you to receive credit for extra 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 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. Curious about how much you can save? Call Tri County Air Care LLC at 469-617-3437 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.
