Summer is finally on the way and with it comes air conditioning and any needed maintenance to your system.. In the era of sustainable thinking and living, how to decrease that cost in a greener way is foremost on many consumers’ minds. The question is this: When will someone create an air conditioning system that can keep our house cool 24/7, and not have to worry about increased energy costs or the impact on the environment?
Enter the idea of 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.” Actually… 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 ensures outstanding comfort without incurring a costly environmental toll.
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.
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. One solar panel offers freely available renewable energy to counterbalance the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor runs at low speed the majority of the time, which means it’s less expense to operate and provides 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 uses patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology that minimizes the noise of airflow exiting the unit, providing a quieter environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to soften the operating sound, producing very low sound pollution.
Constructed of heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and evaluated in the most intense environments to offer supreme durability, the system also comes with the industry-leading onboard cooling system diagnostic tool, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which always monitors system performance and assures dependable 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 the first product a the U.S. 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 all climates or regions, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it a system of choice for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
