Why You Should Consider a Solar A/C System in Saint Charles

March 19, 2015

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 age of “green” thinking and living, how to reduce that cost in a greener way is a priority to many Saint Charles homeowners. The question is this: Why can’t we have an air conditioning system that can keep our house cool 24/7, but not worry about escalating energy costs or negatively impact our environment?

We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Golden Seal Service Experts knows what you’re thinking - “It’s going to be a thing of the future, maybe another five years at least.” Actually… it’s already here, right now... today! So here is the system you’ve been waiting for - the first integrated solar-assisted residential heating and air conditioning system: The SunSource™ Comfort System from Lennox®:

Environmentally Responsible

The industry's top solar-assisted central heat pump utilizes solar energy and electricity to help lower overall home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant allows exceptional 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.

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 offers freely available climate-friendly energy to counterweight the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor operates at low speed a significant amount of the time, which means it's low-cost to operate and results in more consistent comfort. In addition, it's specifically developed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for enhanced comfort control.

Quiet Operation

The SilentComfort™ fan grille utilizes patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology that minimizes the sound of airflow leaving the unit, providing a virtually silent environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to stifle operating sound, thereby exhibiting low sound pollution.

Reliable Performance

Constructed of heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and tested in the most intense environments to offer maximum durability, the system also comes with the industry-leading onboard cooling system diagnostic tool, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which constantly 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).

Final Thoughts

SunSource™ is the first product a Saint Charles homeowner 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 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.
