Summer is finally on the way and with it comes air conditioning and any needed maintenance to your system.. In the age of “green” thinking and living, how to decrease 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?
We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now A-PLUS Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning 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 help lower overall home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant allows outstanding comfort without exacting a costly environmental toll.
ENERGY STAR® Qualified
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.
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. A single solar panel offers freely available climate-friendly energy to offset 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 inexpensive to operate and results in more consistent comfort. Plus 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 to lessen the sound of airflow passing through the unit, providing a virtually silent environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to muffle operating sound, resulting in extremely low sound pollution.
Manufactured with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and evaluated in the harshest environments to offer supreme durability, the system also comes with the first onboard cooling system diagnostics in the industry, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which constantly monitors system performance and confirms dependable operation and prompt troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (the solar panel itself is not included).
SunSource™ is the first product a Waldorf consumer needs to consider when researching 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 the preferred system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
