With the dog days of summer typically comes the buzz about air conditioning costs. In the era of eco-friendly thinking and living, how to lower that cost in a greener way is a priority to many Concord homeowners. The question is this: Why can’t we have an air conditioning system that can keep our family cool 24/7, and not have to worry about higher energy costs or negatively impact our environment?
Enter the idea of 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! 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 combines solar energy and electricity to help lower overall 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 a lot of money each year compared to a standard heat pump. The solar panel offers freely available clean energy to offset 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 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 greater comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille utilizes patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to lessen the commotion of airflow exiting the unit, providing a virtually silent environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to soften the operating sound, producing very low sound pollution.
Built with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and evaluated in the harshest environments to offer top durability, the system also comes with the industry-leading onboard cooling system diagnostic tool, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which continuously monitors system performance and promises dependable operation and quick troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (not including the solar panel).
SunSource™ is the first product a Concord customer needs to consider when exploring an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). Although 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.
