Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy .

Adding solar-powered products to your home is a good investment that will help you become more eco-friendly and less dependent on fossil fuels. But it does require a little preparation prior to installing the system. We’ve mapped out the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready.

Step 1: Schedule a consultation with iTemp Heating and Air Conditioning in Chicago. Just call or book your appointment using our online scheduler , and we’ll come over to go through our detailed solar planning checklist and determine 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, meaning the roof needs enough space that’s virtually shade-free to place the panels. Each module requires 15 square feet of roof space. Your iTemp Heating and Air Conditioning representative will let you know how many solar panels you need to install to produce enough energy for your home.

Step 3: Investigate possible building restrictions. If you’re a member of a neighborhood or Chicago Homeowner’s Association, you could need to show them 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 need a fancy new internet connection. It just requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s always on so you can utilize the system’s web-based performance monitoring abilities.

Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies frequently have solar rebates and incentive policies to help reduce the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to see if the utility offers net-metering, which will allow you to get credit for surplus electricity your SunSource system generates. Our professionals can help you find and fill out these forms.

With these easy steps, getting started with solar is a cinch . And we didn’t even mention the savings you’ll accumulate when the system is in place. If you have other questions or concerns prior to your solar product installation, just call iTemp Heating and Air Conditioning at 773-704-0640.
