Its been a while since that air conditioner was running, but the heat of summer is just around the corner, which means A/C Trip Charges. 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: When will someone create an air conditioning system that can keep our home cool 24/7, without worrying about escalating energy costs or negatively impact our environment?
Enter the idea of a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Coastal 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! Introducing 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 combines solar energy and electricity to noticeably decrease home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant ensures exceptional comfort without incurring 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.
Tremendous 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. A single solar panel provides freely available clean energy to offset the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor functions at low speed a significant amount of the time, which means it's low-cost to operate and allows more consistent comfort. Finally, it's specifically designed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for greater comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille utilizes patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to lessen the noise of airflow exiting the unit, providing a quieter 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 examined in the harshest environments to offer maximum durability, the system also comes with the first onboard cooling system diagnostics in the industry, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which continuously monitors system performance and confirms steadfast operation and quick troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (not including the solar panel).
SunSource™ is the first product a Savannah customer needs to consider when learning about an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). Although heat pumps are not for use in every climate, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it a system of choice for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
