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 can’t we have an air conditioning system that can keep our home cool 24/7, and not have to worry 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 - “Someday it will happen, maybe another five years at least.” Actually… it’s already here, right now... today! We are happy to share with you 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 ensures exceptional comfort without encountering a costly environmental toll.
ENERGY STAR® Qualified
The system meets or exceeds U.S. EPA guidelines for energy efficiency. This advanced Lennox® 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.
Unbelievable 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 provides freely available clean energy to counterbalance the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor functions at low speed most of the time, which means it's less expense 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 utilizes patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to reduce 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.
Built with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and examined in the most extreme environments to ensure maximum durability, the system also comes with the first onboard cooling system diagnostics in the industry, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which continuously monitors system performance and confirms reliable operation and quick 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 Ocala homeowner needs to consider when researching an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). While heat pumps are not for use in every climate, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it a system of choice for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
