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

March 19, 2015

With the dog days of summer typically comes the buzz about air conditioning costs. In the age of “green” thinking and living, how to lower that cost in a greener way is a major consideration to many Jackson homeowners. The question is this: Why hasn’t someone built an air conditioning system that can keep our home cool 24/7, but not worry about increased energy costs or the environmental impact?

The answer is a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Comfortech 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.” But you don’t need to wait… 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 Responsible

The industry's leading solar-assisted central heat pump combines solar energy and electricity to reduce home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant ensures remarkable 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.

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 climate-friendly 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 results in more consistent comfort. Finally, it's specifically built to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for greater comfort control.

Quiet Operation

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

Reliable Performance

Constructed of heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and tested in the harshest environments to provide supreme durability, the system also comes with the industry-leading onboard cooling system diagnostic tool, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which continuously monitors system performance and promises reliable operation and fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (excludes the solar panel).

Final Considerations

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