Why You Should Consider a Solar A/C System in Jacksonville

With the dog days of summer typically comes the buzz about air conditioning costs. In the age of “green” thinking and living, how to lower that cost in a greener way is a priority to many the U.S. homeowners. The question is this: When will someone create an air conditioning system that can keep our house cool 24/7, but not worry about escalating 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 – “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! Introducing the first integrated solar-assisted residential heating and air conditioning system: The SunSource™ Comfort System from Lennox®

Eco-Friendly 

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. 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 you significant dollars each year compared to a standard heat pump. One solar panel offers freely available climate-friendly energy to counterbalance 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 less expense to operate and provides more consistent comfort. Plus it’s specifically designed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for greater comfort control. 

Quiet Operation 

The SilentComfort™ fan grille uses patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to reduce the commotion of airflow leaving the unit, providing a tranquil environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to muffle operating sound, resulting in extremely low sound pollution. 

Reliable Performance 

Constructed of heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and tested in the harshest environments to ensure 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 reliable operation and fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (excludes the solar panel). 

Final Considerations 

SunSource™ is recommended as the first product a the U.S. customer needs to consider when learning about 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 the preferred system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
