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 reduce that cost in a greener way is a priority to many Livermore homeowners. 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 escalating 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.” Actually… 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 uses a combination of solar energy and electricity to help lower overall home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant ensures remarkable comfort without exacting 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. Also, many states and local municipalities have their own tax credits available, so make sure you explore those additional ways to save.
Extreme 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 provides freely available renewable energy to offset the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor runs at low speed most of the time, which means it's low-cost to operate and results in more consistent comfort. Finally, it's specifically developed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for greater comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille uses 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, producing very low sound pollution.
Manufactured with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and examined in the most extreme environments to offer 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 confirms reliable operation and quick troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (the solar panel itself is not included).
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). While heat pumps are not for use in every all climates or regions, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it the ideal system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
