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 environmentally friendly and less dependent on the utility company. But it will require a bit of preparation before the system can be installed. We’ve mapped out the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling in Liberty and the Kansas City Metro Area. Just call or use our online scheduler , and we’ll come over to go 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 virtually shade-free to place the panels. Each module requires 15 square feet of roof space. Your Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling representative will let you know 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 Liberty and the Kansas City Metro Area 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 require an elaborate new internet connection. It only requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s constantly on 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 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 let you get credit for surplus electricity your SunSource system generates. Our experts can help you find and fill out these forms. With these few steps, getting started with solar is easy . And we didn’t even mention the savings you’ll rack up after the system is in place.
