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 reduce that cost in a greener way is a major consideration to many Tempe homeowners. The question is this: Why can’t we have an air conditioning system that can keep our house cool 24/7, without worrying about increased energy costs or the environmental impact?
We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Bob Brown Service Experts 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! 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 leading solar-assisted central heat pump utilizes solar energy and electricity to noticeably decrease home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant ensures remarkable comfort without exacting 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. One solar panel offers freely available climate-friendly energy to counterbalance the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor runs at low speed a significant amount of the time, which means it's inexpensive to operate and allows more consistent comfort. Finally, it's specifically designed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for greater comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille incorporates patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to reduce the sound of airflow exiting the unit, providing a tranquil environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to soften the operating sound, producing very low sound pollution.
Constructed of heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and evaluated in the most extreme environments to offer supreme durability, the system also comes with the first onboard cooling system diagnostics in the industry, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which always monitors system performance and confirms dependable operation and prompt troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (excludes the solar panel).
SunSource™ should be the first product a Tempe consumer needs to consider when exploring an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). While heat pumps are not for use in every all climates or regions, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it the ideal system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
