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

March 19, 2015

Summer is finally on the way and with it comes air conditioning and any needed maintenance to your system.. In the era of sustainable thinking and living, how to lower that cost in a greener way is a priority to many Denver homeowners. The question is this: Why can’t we have an air conditioning system that can keep our family cool 24/7, without worrying about increased 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.” Actually… 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®:

Environmentally Responsible

The industry's leading solar-assisted central heat pump utilizes solar energy and electricity to reduce home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant allows outstanding 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. 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 a lot of money each year compared to a standard heat pump. A single solar panel provides freely available climate-friendly energy to counterweight the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor operates at low speed a significant amount of the time, which means it's less expense to operate and allows more consistent comfort. Finally, it's specifically designed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for enhanced comfort control.

Quiet Operation

The SilentComfort™ fan grille utilizes patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to lessen the sound of airflow passing through the unit, providing a tranquil environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to muffle operating sound, producing very low sound pollution.

Reliable Performance

Constructed of heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and tested in the harshest environments to offer top durability, the system also comes with the original onboard cooling system diagnostic device, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which constantly monitors system performance and assures reliable operation and quick troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (not including the solar panel).

Additional Considerations

SunSource™ is recommended as the first product a Denver consumer 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 all climates or regions, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it a system of choice for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
