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

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 reduce that cost in a greener way is a priority to many Naples homeowners. The question is this: Why hasn’t someone built an air conditioning system that can keep our house cool 24/7, but not worry about higher energy costs or negatively impact our environment?

The answer is a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning knows what you’re thinking - “Innovation like that will eventually come down the road, maybe another five years at least.” Believe it or not… 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®:

Environmentally Sensitive

The industry's first solar-assisted central heat pump combines solar energy and electricity to noticeably decrease home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant allows remarkable comfort without encountering 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.

Tremendous 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. A single solar panel facilitates freely available renewable energy to counterbalance the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor functions at low speed most of the time, which means it's less expense to operate and provides 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 uses patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology that minimizes the sound of airflow exiting the unit, providing a virtually silent environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to muffle operating sound, resulting in extremely low sound pollution.

Reliable Performance

Built with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and tested in the harshest 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 promises dependable operation and prompt troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (excludes the solar panel).

Additional Thoughts

SunSource™ is the first product a Naples consumer needs to consider when exploring 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 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.
