With the dog days of summer typically comes the buzz about air conditioning costs. In the age of “green” thinking and living, how to decrease that cost in a greener way is a major consideration to many Memphis homeowners. The question is this: When will someone create an air conditioning system that can keep our home cool 24/7, and not have to worry about escalating energy costs or the impact on the environment?
We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning knows what you’re thinking - “Someday it will happen, maybe another five years at least.” Believe it or not… 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 leading solar-assisted central heat pump uses a combination of solar energy and electricity to help lower overall home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant permits exceptional comfort without exacting a costly environmental toll.
ENERGY STAR® Qualified
The system meets or exceeds U.S. EPA guidelines for energy efficiency. This advanced Lennox® 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.
Unbelievable Comfort & Energy Efficiency
Efficiency ratings of up to 18.20 SEER and 9.70 HSPF can save hundreds of dollars a year compared to a standard heat pump. A single solar panel facilitates freely available clean energy to counterbalance 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 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.
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 muffle operating sound, thereby exhibiting low sound pollution.
Manufactured with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and examined in the most intense environments to provide top 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 reliable operation and fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (not including the solar panel).
SunSource™ is the first product a Memphis customer needs to consider when researching an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). Although heat pumps are not for use in every all climates or regions, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it the preferred system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
