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 era of eco-friendly thinking and living, how to lower 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 home cool 24/7, and not have to worry about higher energy costs or negatively impact our environment?
We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Freschi Service Experts knows what you’re thinking - “Someday it will happen, maybe another five years at least.” Actually… 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®:
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 allows remarkable comfort without incurring 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.
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. The solar panel offers 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. Plus it's specifically designed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for added comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille utilizes patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to lessen the commotion of airflow passing through the unit, providing a virtually silent environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to soften the operating sound, resulting in extremely low sound pollution.
Constructed of heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and evaluated in the most extreme environments to offer top 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 promises dependable operation and fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (not including the solar panel).
SunSource™ should be the first product a Concord 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 climate, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it a system of choice for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
