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 era of eco-friendly thinking and living, how to lower that cost in a greener way is foremost on many consumers’ minds. The question is this: When will someone create an air conditioning system that can keep our family cool 24/7, and not have to worry about escalating energy costs or the environmental impact?
We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Eveready 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! Introducing 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 noticeably decrease home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant permits remarkable comfort without exacting 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. Also, many states and local municipalities have their own tax credits available, so make sure you explore those additional ways to save.
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 offset 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 inexpensive to operate and results in more consistent comfort. Plus it's specifically built to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for greater comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille utilizes patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to reduce the noise of airflow exiting the unit, providing a tranquil environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to muffle operating sound, producing very low sound pollution.
Manufactured with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and tested in the most intense environments to ensure 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 (the solar panel itself is not included).
SunSource™ is the first product a Richmond consumer needs to consider when researching an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). Although heat pumps are not for use in every all climates or regions, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it the ideal system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
