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 reduce that cost in a greener way is foremost on many consumers’ minds. The question is this: Why hasn’t someone built an air conditioning system that can keep our house cool 24/7, without worrying about increased energy costs or the impact on the environment?
We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning knows what you’re thinking - “It’s going to be a thing of the future, maybe another five years at least.” Actually… it’s already here, right now... today! Introducing 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 permits remarkable 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. Don’t forget to check with your local utility provider for any state tax credit opportunities.
Extreme 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 facilitates freely available climate-friendly 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 inexpensive to operate and results in more consistent comfort. Plus it's specifically designed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for added comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille uses patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology that minimizes the noise of airflow passing through the unit, providing a quieter 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 provide top durability, the system also comes with the industry-leading onboard cooling system diagnostic tool, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which constantly monitors system performance and confirms dependable operation and quick 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 Shreveport homeowner needs to consider when learning about an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). Even though 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.
