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

March 19, 2015

Summer is finally on the way and with it comes air conditioning and any needed maintenance to your system.. In the era of sustainable thinking and living, how to lower that cost in a greener way is foremost on many consumers’ minds. The question is this: Why can’t we have an air conditioning system that can keep our house cool 24/7, and not have to worry about increased energy costs or negatively impact our environment?

Enter the idea of a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Comfort Masters 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! 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 allows exceptional 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.

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. One solar panel provides freely available climate-friendly energy to counterweight 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 less expense to operate and provides more consistent comfort. Plus it's specifically built to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for enhanced comfort control.

Quiet Operation

The SilentComfort™ fan grille incorporates patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to reduce the noise of airflow passing through the unit, providing a tranquil environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to muffle operating sound, producing very low sound pollution.

Reliable Performance

Built with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and examined in the most intense environments to ensure top durability, the system also comes with the industry-leading onboard cooling system diagnostic tool, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which always monitors system performance and assures steadfast operation and fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (excludes the solar panel).

Other Considerations

SunSource™ is recommended as the first product a Wheeling 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 all climates or regions, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it the preferred system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
