Its been a while since that air conditioner was running, but the heat of summer is just around the corner, which means A/C service costs. 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 house cool 24/7, without worrying about increased energy costs or negatively impact our environment?
We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Golden Seal 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.” 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®:
The industry's first solar-assisted central heat pump utilizes solar energy and electricity to reduce 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. The SunSource™ Comfort 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 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. Plus it's specifically developed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for enhanced comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille utilizes 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 stifle operating sound, thereby exhibiting low sound pollution.
Constructed of heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and tested in the most intense environments to offer maximum durability, the system also comes with the first onboard cooling system diagnostics in the industry, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which constantly monitors system performance and confirms dependable operation and prompt 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 Saint Charles homeowner 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 region of the country, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it a system of choice for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
