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 eco-friendly thinking and living, how to decrease that cost in a greener way is a priority to many Kingston homeowners. The question is this: Why can’t we have an air conditioning system that can keep our house cool 24/7, and not have to worry about escalating energy costs or the impact on the environment?
Enter the idea of 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®:
The industry's top solar-assisted central heat pump combines solar energy and electricity to help lower overall home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant allows remarkable 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. Also, many states and local municipalities have their own tax credits available, so make sure you explore those additional ways to save.
Unbelievable 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. 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 functions at low speed the majority of the time, which means it's inexpensive to operate and allows more consistent comfort. In addition, it's specifically designed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for enhanced comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille uses patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to reduce the sound of airflow passing through the unit, providing a tranquil environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to soften the operating sound, thereby exhibiting low sound pollution.
Manufactured with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and examined in the most intense environments to ensure maximum durability, the system also comes with the original onboard cooling system diagnostic device, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which continuously monitors system performance and promises reliable operation and prompt troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (the solar panel itself is not included).
SunSource™ is the first product a Kingston customer needs to consider when researching an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). Although 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.
