Why You Should Consider a Solar A/C System in West Chester

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 decrease that cost in a greener way is foremost on many consumers’ minds. The question is this: Why can’t we have an air conditioning system that can keep our home cool 24/7, and not have to worry about increased energy costs or the environmental impact?

Enter the idea of a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Wesley Wood Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning knows what you’re thinking - “It’s going to be a thing of the future, maybe another five years at least.” Actually… 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®:

Eco-Friendly

The industry's top solar-assisted central heat pump uses a combination of solar energy and electricity to noticeably decrease home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant permits exceptional comfort without exacting 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 climate-friendly energy to counterbalance the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor operates at low speed most 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 enhanced comfort control.

Quiet Operation

The SilentComfort™ fan grille incorporates patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology that minimizes the commotion of airflow passing through the unit, providing a quieter 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 intense environments to ensure maximum durability, the system also comes with the industry-leading onboard cooling system diagnostic tool, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which constantly monitors system performance and assures reliable operation and fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (not including the solar panel).

Final Thoughts

SunSource™ is recommended as the first product a West Chester 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 the ideal system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
