Why You Should Consider a Solar A/C System in Louisville

March 19, 2015

With the dog days of summer typically comes the buzz about air conditioning costs. In the age of “green” thinking and living, how to reduce that cost in a greener way is a major consideration to many Louisville homeowners. The question is this: Why hasn’t someone built an air conditioning system that can keep our family cool 24/7, without worrying about escalating energy costs or negatively impact our environment?

We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Becht/Givens Service Experts knows what you’re thinking - “Innovation like that will eventually come down the road, 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®:

Eco-Friendly

The industry's first solar-assisted central heat pump utilizes solar energy and electricity to noticeably decrease home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant provides outstanding 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. 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 facilitates freely available climate-friendly energy to counterweight 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 inexpensive to operate and provides more consistent comfort. In addition, it's specifically built to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for added comfort control.

Quiet Operation

The SilentComfort™ fan grille incorporates patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to reduce the sound of airflow passing through 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

Built with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and evaluated in the most extreme environments to offer top durability, the system also comes with the original onboard cooling system diagnostic device, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which continuously monitors system performance and confirms steadfast operation and quick troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (not including the solar panel).

Final Thoughts

SunSource™ is the first product a Louisville homeowner needs to consider when learning about 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.
