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

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: When will someone create an air conditioning system that can keep our family cool 24/7, and not have to worry about increased energy costs or negatively impact our environment?

We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning knows what you’re thinking - “Innovation like that will eventually come down the road, 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®:

Environmentally Sensitive

The industry's first solar-assisted central heat pump uses a combination of solar energy and electricity to reduce home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant ensures remarkable 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. The solar panel offers freely available renewable energy to offset the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor operates at low speed the majority of the time, which means it's low-cost to operate and provides more consistent comfort. Finally, it's specifically developed 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 noise of airflow leaving the unit, providing a quieter environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to soften the operating sound, resulting in extremely low sound pollution.

Reliable Performance

Manufactured with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and examined in the most extreme environments to offer maximum durability, the system also comes with the original onboard cooling system diagnostic device, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which always monitors system performance and assures dependable operation and quick troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (excludes the solar panel).

Final Factors

SunSource™ is the first product a Livermore customer needs to consider when learning about 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 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.
