Getting Started with Solar Solutions has Never Been Easier. Adding solar-powered equipment to your home is a good investment that will help you become more environmentally responsible and less dependent on fossil fuels. But it will require a little preparation before the system is installed. We’ve mapped out the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc in Huntsville. Just call or book your appointment using our online scheduler , and we’ll walk you 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, so the roof will need enough space that’s virtually shade-free to place the panels. Each module requires 15 square feet of roof space. Your All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc representative will let you know 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 Huntsville Homeowner’s Association, you could need to share 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 require a brand new internet connection. It only 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 frequently have solar rebates and incentive policies to help reduce 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 . And we didn’t even mention the savings you’ll accumulate once the system is in place. If you have other questions or concerns leading up to your solar product installation, just call All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc at 256-852-8825.
