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

March 19, 2015

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

We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning 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! We are happy to share with you the first integrated solar-assisted residential heating and air conditioning system: The SunSource™ Comfort System from Lennox®:

Eco-Friendly

The industry's first solar-assisted central heat pump utilizes solar energy and electricity to help lower overall home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant permits exceptional comfort without incurring 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. Remember to also check on any state or local municipality incentives that may save you more money for being eco-friendly.

Tremendous 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 clean energy to offset the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor functions at low speed most of the time, which means it's inexpensive to operate and allows more consistent comfort. In addition, it's specifically built to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for greater comfort control.

Quiet Operation

The SilentComfort™ fan grille utilizes patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to lessen the noise of airflow leaving 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

Built with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and tested in the most intense environments to offer top 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 fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (the solar panel itself is not included).

Final Considerations

SunSource™ is the first product a Orlando consumer needs to consider when researching an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). While heat pumps are not for use in every region of the country, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it the ideal system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
