Getting Started with Solar Solutions has Never Been Easier. Adding solar-powered equipment to your home is a smart investment that will help you become more environmentally responsible and less dependent on the utility company. But it can require a little preparation before the system can be installed. We’ve mapped out the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc in Mobile. Just call or book your appointment using our online scheduler , and we’ll go through our detailed solar planning checklist and figure out whether your home meets requirements for a SunSource® Home Energy System installation. Step 2: Determine the space and sunlight available on your roof. We install solar modules on your roof, so the roof will need enough space that’s almost shade-free to place the panels. Each module requires 15 square feet of roof space. Your Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc representative will help you decide how many solar panels you need to install to generate enough energy for your home. Step 3: Investigate possible building restrictions. If you’re a member of a neighborhood or Mobile Homeowner’s Association, you might need to submit your solar energy system installation plans ahead of time. Step 4: Make sure your internet is solar-ready. Don’t worry – the SunSource doesn’t necessitate an elaborate new internet connection. It just requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s never turns off so you can take advantage of the system’s web-based performance monitoring capabilities. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies commonly have solar rebates and incentive policies to help offset the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to ask if the utility offers net-metering, which will let you get credit for additional electricity your SunSource system generates. Our professionals can help you find and fill out these forms. With these few steps, getting started with solar is a breeze . Don’t let us forget to mention the savings you’ll add up when the system is in place.
