Getting Started with Solar Solutions has Never Been Easier. Adding solar-powered systems to your home is a good investment that will help you become more environmentally responsible and less dependent on oil and gas. But it can require a little preparation before the system can be installed. We’ve listed the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Alltemp Comfort Services LLC in Winnsboro. Just call or book your appointment using our online scheduler , and we’ll go through our detailed solar planning checklist and figure out 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 almost shade-free to place the panels. Each module requires 15 square feet of roof space. Your Alltemp Comfort Services LLC 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 Winnsboro Homeowner’s Association, you may 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 an elaborate new internet connection. It only requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s never turns off 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 usually have solar rebates and incentive policies to help decrease the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to know 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 simple steps, getting started with solar is a breeze . And we didn’t even mention the savings you’ll add up when the system is in place.
