With the dog days of summer typically comes the buzz about air conditioning costs. In the era of sustainable 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 family cool 24/7, without worrying about escalating energy costs or the impact on the environment?
We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing knows what you’re thinking – “It’s going to be a thing of the future, maybe another five years at least.” Believe it or not… 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 first solar-assisted central heat pump uses a combination of solar energy and electricity to reduce home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant provides remarkable 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 province 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. A single solar panel offers freely available clean energy to offset the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor operates at low speed most of the time, which means it’s less expense to operate and provides more consistent comfort. In addition, it’s specifically built to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for greater comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille incorporates patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to reduce the noise of airflow exiting the unit, providing a virtually silent environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to soften the operating sound, resulting in extremely low sound pollution.
Constructed of heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and examined in the most extreme environments to provide supreme 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 (excludes the solar panel).
SunSource™ should be the first product a Canada consumer needs to consider when researching 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 region of the country, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it a system of choice for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
