Getting Started with Solar Solutions has Never Been Easier. Adding solar-powered systems to your home is a smart investment that will help you become more environmentally responsible and less dependent on the utility company. But it will require some 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 Custom Air Systems Inc in Indian River County. Just call or book your appointment using our online scheduler , and we’ll walk you 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 almost shade-free to place the panels. Each module takes up 15 square feet of roof space. Your Custom Air Systems Inc representative will help you decide how many solar panels you need to install to produce enough energy for your home. Step 3: Investigate possible building restrictions. If you’re a member of a neighborhood or Indian River County Homeowner’s Association, you could 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 simply requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s constantly on 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 frequently have solar rebates and incentive opportunities to help reduce 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 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 a breeze . Don’t let us forget to mention the savings you’ll accumulate after the system is in place.
