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

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 eco-friendly thinking and living, how to reduce that cost in a greener way is a major consideration to many Charlotte homeowners. The question is this: Why can’t we have an air conditioning system that can keep our family cool 24/7, and not have to worry about higher energy costs or negatively impact our environment?

The answer is 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.” Actually… 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 uses a combination of solar energy and electricity to help lower overall 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. 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.

Unbelievable Comfort & Energy Efficiency

Efficiency ratings of up to 18.20 SEER and 9.70 HSPF can save a lot of money each year compared to a standard heat pump. A single solar panel facilitates freely available renewable energy to offset the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor operates at low speed the majority of the time, which means it's less expense to operate and results in more consistent comfort. Finally, it's specifically designed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for added comfort control.

Quiet Operation

The SilentComfort™ fan grille uses patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to reduce the sound of airflow passing through the unit, providing a quieter 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 examined in the most intense environments to offer maximum 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 promises reliable operation and prompt troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (the solar panel itself is not included).

Additional Thoughts

SunSource™ is recommended as the first product a Charlotte customer needs to consider when exploring 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 a system of choice for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
