Getting Started with Solar Solutions has Never Been Easier. You’ve made the decision to add a solar energy system. Now, how do you know where to begin? Thanks to a short list we’ve made for you here, getting started with solar in Lake Worth is easy. But if you have additional questions, just give us a call at 561-533-6066 . Step 1: Call Smyth Air Conditioning Inc in Lake Worth 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 is big enough and gets enough sun. Each solar panel needs 15 square feet of surface area. Our team can help you decide how many modules you will need or want for your home. Also, your roof needs to be relatively clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is preferred, and we will perform tests to figure out your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Lake Worth 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 an internet connection that’s always on and joined with a broadband router to utilize the SunSource performance monitoring service. Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your professional from Smyth Air Conditioning Inc will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and test your home’s distribution panel to make sure you have the required specifications. You may want to check with your utility company and see if a net-metering program is available. Net-metering enables you to receive credit for a portion of the electricity generated by your solar energy system. The utility company will also let you know whether your solar products will qualify for rebates or incentives*. There’s lots to do to prepare for a SunSource® Home Energy System, but once it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills get smaller. Curious about how much you can save? Call Smyth Air Conditioning Inc at 561-533-6066 if you have any 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.
