With the dog days of summer typically comes the buzz about air conditioning costs. In the era of sustainable thinking and living, how to lower 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, 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 knows what you’re thinking - “Someday it will happen, 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 combines solar energy and electricity to reduce home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant permits remarkable comfort without incurring 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. Remember to also check on any state or local municipality incentives that may save you more money for being eco-friendly.
Tremendous Comfort & Energy Efficiency
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. One solar panel facilitates freely available clean energy to counterweight 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. Plus it's specifically built to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for enhanced comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille incorporates patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to reduce the commotion of airflow passing through the unit, providing a tranquil 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 evaluated in the most intense environments to ensure maximum durability, the system also comes with the original onboard cooling system diagnostic device, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which constantly monitors system performance and confirms dependable operation and fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (not including the solar panel).
SunSource™ should be the first product a Cocoa customer needs to consider when researching an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). Although heat pumps are not for use in every climate, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it the ideal system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
