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

March 19, 2015

Summer is finally on the way and with it comes air conditioning and any needed maintenance to your system.. In the age of “green” thinking and living, how to decrease that cost in a greener way is foremost on many consumers’ minds. The question is this: Why hasn’t someone built an air conditioning system that can keep our home cool 24/7, and not have to worry about increased energy costs or negatively impact our environment?

Enter the idea of a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Stevenson 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 help lower overall home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant provides exceptional comfort without exacting a costly environmental toll.

ENERGY STAR® Qualified

The system meets or exceeds U.S. EPA guidelines for energy efficiency. This advanced Lennox® system also qualifies for a federal tax credit to reduce your expense; visit the ENERGY STAR website to learn more. Remember to also check on any state or local municipality incentives that may save you more money for being eco-friendly.

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 facilitates freely available clean 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 inexpensive to operate and provides more consistent comfort. Finally, it's specifically designed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for greater comfort control.

Quiet Operation

The SilentComfort™ fan grille utilizes patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to reduce the sound of airflow leaving the unit, providing a virtually silent environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to stifle operating sound, resulting in extremely low sound pollution.

Reliable Performance

Constructed of heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and evaluated in the most extreme environments to provide 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 confirms reliable operation and fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (excludes the solar panel).

Final Thoughts

SunSource™ is the first product a Dayton homeowner needs to consider when researching an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). Even though 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.
