Getting Started with Solar Solutions has Never Been Easier. Adding solar-powered products to your home is a great investment that will help you become more environmentally friendly and less dependent on oil and gas. But it will require a bit of preparation prior to installing the system. We’ve outlined the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Payless Heating & Air Inc in Valencia. Just call or set up an appointment using our online scheduler , and we’ll walk you through our detailed solar planning checklist and discover 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, which means the roof needs enough space that’s nearly shade-free to place the panels. Each module takes up 15 square feet of roof space. Your Payless Heating & Air Inc representative will help determine how many solar panels you need to install to have enough energy for your home. Step 3: Investigate possible building restrictions. If you’re a member of a neighborhood or Valencia Homeowner’s Association, you might 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 necessitate an elaborate new internet connection. It just requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s never turns off so you can utilize the system’s web-based performance monitoring capabilities. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies usually have solar rebates and incentive programs to help offset 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 additional electricity your SunSource system generates. Our experts can help you find and fill out these forms. With these easy steps, getting started with solar is a breeze . We should also mention the savings you’ll accumulate when the system is in place.
