Why You Should Consider a Solar A/C System in Fort Myers

March 19, 2015

With the dog days of summer typically comes the buzz about air conditioning costs. In the era of eco-friendly thinking and living, how to lower that cost in a greener way is foremost on many consumers’ minds. The question is this: Why hasn’t someone built an air conditioning system that can keep our home cool 24/7, and not have to worry about higher energy costs or the impact on the environment?

The answer is a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning 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®:

Environmentally Sensitive

The industry's top solar-assisted central heat pump combines solar energy and electricity to help lower overall 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. This advanced Lennox® 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.

Tremendous 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. The solar panel offers freely available clean energy to counterbalance the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor runs 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 designed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for added comfort control.

Quiet Operation

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

Reliable Performance

Built with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and evaluated in the harshest environments to ensure supreme durability, the system also comes with the original onboard cooling system diagnostic device, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which continuously monitors system performance and confirms reliable operation and prompt troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (excludes the solar panel).

Other Thoughts

SunSource™ is the first product a Fort Myers consumer needs to consider when researching 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 a system of choice for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
