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

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 decrease 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 family cool 24/7, without worrying about increased energy costs or negatively impact our environment?

Enter the idea of a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Church Services 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! So here is the system you’ve been waiting for - the first integrated solar-assisted residential heating and air conditioning system: The SunSource™ Comfort System from Lennox®:

Environmentally Responsible

The industry's top solar-assisted central heat pump uses a combination of solar energy and electricity to reduce home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant provides exceptional comfort without encountering 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.

Unbelievable 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 provides freely available clean energy to counterweight the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor operates at low speed most 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 added comfort control.

Quiet Operation

The SilentComfort™ fan grille incorporates patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology that minimizes the sound of airflow leaving the unit, providing a virtually silent environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to stifle operating sound, producing very low sound pollution.

Reliable Performance

Built with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and evaluated in the most extreme environments to ensure supreme durability, the system also comes with the original onboard cooling system diagnostic device, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which always monitors system performance and promises reliable operation and quick troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (the solar panel itself is not included).

Final Thoughts

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