With the dog days of summer typically comes the buzz about air conditioning costs. In the era of eco-friendly thinking and living, how to lower that cost in a greener way is a major consideration to many the U.S. homeowners. The question is this: Why hasn’t someone built an air conditioning system that can keep our family cool 24/7, but not worry about higher energy costs or the impact on the environment?
The answer is 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.” But you don’t need to wait… it’s already here, right now… today! So here is the system you’ve been waiting for – 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 combines solar energy and electricity to help lower overall home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant permits exceptional comfort without incurring 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. Also, many states and local municipalities have their own tax credits available, so make sure you explore those additional ways to save.
Efficiency ratings of up to 18.20 SEER and 9.70 HSPF can save you significant dollars each year compared to a standard heat pump. The solar panel provides freely available clean energy to counterbalance the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor runs at low speed a significant amount of the time, which means it’s less expense 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 utilizes patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology that minimizes the commotion of airflow passing through the unit, providing a tranquil environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to muffle operating sound, resulting in extremely low sound pollution.
Built with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and tested in the most intense environments to provide supreme durability, the system also comes with the original onboard cooling system diagnostic device, 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™ should be the first product a the U.S. customer needs to consider when exploring an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). Although heat pumps are not for use in every region of the country, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it the ideal system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
