Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve settled on adding a solar energy system to your home. Now what? Thanks to our short list below, getting started with solar in Crystal Lake is simple. But if you have additional questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 815-788-6283. Step 1: Call Campbell's Tempracure in Crystal Lake for a consultation, or schedule one online. We’ll walk you through our detailed planning checklist to figure out whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Determine if your roof has enough space and gets enough sun. Each solar panel needs 15 square feet of surface area. Our experts can help you choose how many modules you will need or want. In addition, your roof needs to be essentially clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is best, and our professionals will perform tests to discover your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Crystal Lake 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 utilize the SunSource performance monitoring service. Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your representative at Campbell's Tempracure will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and look at your home’s distribution panel to make sure you meet the product specifications. You may want to contact your utility company and see if a net-metering program exists. Net-metering lets you receive credit for part of the 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 plenty to do to prepare for a SunSource® Home Energy System, but once it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills get smaller. Want to get an idea of your savings beforehand? Call Campbell's Tempracure at 815-788-6283 if you have more 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.
