Why You Should Consider a Solar A/C System in Austin
Its been a while since that air conditioner was running, but the heat of summer is just around the corner, which means A/C Trip Charges. In the era of sustainable thinking and living, how to reduce that cost in a greener way is foremost on many consumers’ minds. The question is this: Why can’t we have an air conditioning system that can keep our home cool 24/7, and not have to worry about escalating energy costs or the environmental impact?
Enter the idea of a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing knows what you’re thinking – “Someday it will happen, maybe another five years at least.” Actually… it’s already here, right now… today! We are happy to share with you the first integrated solar-assisted residential heating and air conditioning system: The SunSource™ Comfort System from Lennox®:
The industry’s leading solar-assisted central heat pump uses a combination of solar energy and electricity to noticeably decrease home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant ensures remarkable comfort without encountering a costly environmental toll.
ENERGY STAR® Qualified
The system meets or exceeds U.S. EPA guidelines for energy efficiency. This air conditioning and heating system also qualifies for a federal tax credit to reduce your expense; visit the ENERGY STAR website to learn more. Don’t forget to check with your local utility provider for any state tax credit opportunities.
Unbelievable Comfort & Energy Efficiency
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. The solar panel facilitates freely available climate-friendly energy to counterbalance the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor operates at low speed a significant amount of the time, which means it’s low-cost to operate and allows more consistent comfort. In addition, it’s specifically developed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for greater comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille incorporates patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to reduce the sound of airflow exiting the unit, providing a virtually silent environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to stifle operating sound, resulting in extremely low sound pollution.
Manufactured with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and examined in the most extreme environments to offer top durability, the system also comes with the original onboard cooling system diagnostic device, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which always monitors system performance and promises steadfast operation and fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (not including the solar panel).
SunSource™ is recommended as the first product a the U.S. homeowner needs to consider when learning about an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). While heat pumps are not for use in every climate, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it a system of choice for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
