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 age of “green” thinking and living, how to decrease that cost in a greener way is a priority to many Gaithersburg homeowners. The question is this: When will someone create an air conditioning system that can keep our home cool 24/7, without worrying about higher energy costs or the impact on the environment?
We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Parker Pearce Service Experts knows what you’re thinking - “It’s going to be a thing of the future, 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 top solar-assisted central heat pump utilizes solar energy and electricity to reduce home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant permits remarkable comfort without encountering 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. Also, many states and local municipalities have their own tax credits available, so make sure you explore those additional ways to save.
Extreme Comfort & Energy Efficiency
Efficiency ratings of up to 18.20 SEER and 9.70 HSPF can save hundreds of dollars a year compared to a standard heat pump. A single solar panel facilitates freely available climate-friendly energy to counterbalance the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor functions at low speed the majority of the time, which means it's inexpensive to operate and allows more consistent comfort. Finally, it's specifically built to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for added 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 muffle operating sound, resulting in extremely low sound pollution.
Built with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and examined in the most extreme environments to ensure maximum durability, the system also comes with the original onboard cooling system diagnostic device, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which always monitors system performance and confirms reliable operation and prompt troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (excludes the solar panel).
SunSource™ is recommended as the first product a Gaithersburg consumer 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 preferred system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
