With the dog days of summer typically comes the buzz about air conditioning costs. In the era of sustainable thinking and living, how to decrease that cost in a greener way is a major consideration to many the U.S. homeowners. The question is this: Why can’t we have an air conditioning system that can keep our house cool 24/7, and not have to worry about higher energy costs or negatively impact our environment?
We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing knows what you’re thinking – “Innovation like that will eventually come down the road, maybe another five years at least.” Believe it or not… it’s already here, right now… today! Introducing the first integrated solar-assisted residential heating and air conditioning system: The SunSource™ Comfort System from Lennox®:
The industry’s first solar-assisted central heat pump uses a combination of solar energy and electricity to help lower overall home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant provides outstanding comfort without exacting a costly environmental toll.
The system meets or exceeds U.S. EPA guidelines for energy efficiency. The SunSource™ Comfort System also qualifies for a federal tax credit to reduce your expense; visit the ENERGY STAR website to learn more. Remember to also check on any state or local municipality incentives that may save you more money for being eco-friendly.
Efficiency ratings of up to 18.20 SEER and 9.70 HSPF can save a lot of money each year compared to a standard heat pump. One solar panel provides freely available renewable energy to counterbalance the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor operates at low speed the majority of the time, which means it’s less expense to operate and results in more consistent comfort. In addition, it’s specifically built to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for greater comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille incorporates patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology that minimizes the commotion of airflow leaving the unit, providing a tranquil environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to muffle operating sound, producing very low sound pollution.
Built with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and examined in the harshest environments to offer supreme durability, the system also comes with the industry-leading onboard cooling system diagnostic tool, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which continuously monitors system performance and confirms steadfast operation and quick troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (the solar panel itself is not included).
SunSource™ is recommended as the first product a the U.S. homeowner needs to consider when researching an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). Although heat pumps are not for use in every all climates or regions, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it the ideal system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
