Getting Started with Solar Solutions has Never Been Easier. Adding solar-powered equipment to your home is a great investment that will help you become more eco-friendly and less dependent on oil and gas. 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 Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. in Denver. 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, which means the roof needs enough space that’s virtually shade-free to place the panels. Each module takes up 15 square feet of roof space. Your Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. representative will help determine 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 Denver 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 need an elaborate new internet connection. It only requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s always on so you can make use of the system’s web-based performance monitoring service. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies frequently have solar rebates and incentive programs to help decrease the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to see if the utility offers net-metering, which will enable you to get credit for additional electricity your SunSource system generates. Our team 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. If you have other questions or concerns before your solar product installation, just call Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. at 303-452-4146.
