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 a priority to many Wheeling homeowners. The question is this: When will someone create an air conditioning system that can keep our house cool 24/7, and not have to worry about escalating energy costs or negatively impact our environment?
We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Comfort Masters Service Experts knows what you’re thinking - “It’s going to be a thing of the future, 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®:
The industry's top solar-assisted central heat pump utilizes solar energy and electricity to reduce 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. Also, many states and local municipalities have their own tax credits available, so make sure you explore those additional ways to save.
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 offers 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 results in more consistent comfort. Plus it's specifically built to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for enhanced comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille uses patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to reduce the sound of airflow passing through the unit, providing a tranquil environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to soften the operating sound, producing very low sound pollution.
Constructed of heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and tested in the most intense environments to provide 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 confirms steadfast operation and fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (excludes the solar panel).
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.
