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 Canada 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 Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing 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®:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
SunSource™ is recommended as the first product a Canada 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.
