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

Its been a while since that air conditioner was running, but the heat of summer is just around the corner, which means A/C Trip Charges. In the age of “green” thinking and living, how to decrease that cost in a greener way is a major consideration to many Winnipeg homeowners. The question is this: When will someone create an air conditioning system that can keep our home cool 24/7, but not worry about increased energy costs or the impact on the environment?

Enter the idea of a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Winnipeg Supply Service Experts knows what you’re thinking – “Someday it will happen, maybe another five years at least.” Believe it or not… 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®:

Eco-Friendly

The industry’s leading solar-assisted central heat pump uses a combination of solar energy and electricity to reduce home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant permits remarkable comfort without encountering 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. 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 hundreds of dollars a year compared to a standard heat pump. A single 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 most of the time, which means it’s low-cost to operate and allows more consistent comfort. In addition, it’s specifically designed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for added comfort control.

Quiet Operation

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

Reliable Performance

Manufactured with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and tested in the most intense environments to offer maximum durability, the system also comes with the first onboard cooling system diagnostics in the industry, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which constantly monitors system performance and assures steadfast operation and fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (not including the solar panel).

Additional Thoughts

SunSource™ is recommended as the first product a Winnipeg homeowner 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 the preferred system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
