Its been a while since that air conditioner was running, but the heat of summer is just around the corner, which means A/C Trip Charges. In the age of “green” thinking and living, how to decrease that cost in a greener way is a major consideration to many Fort Worth homeowners. The question is this: When will someone create an air conditioning system that can keep our home cool 24/7, without worrying about higher energy costs or the environmental impact?
We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Stark Services knows what you’re thinking - “Someday it will happen, maybe another five years at least.” But you don’t need to wait… 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®:
The industry's leading solar-assisted central heat pump combines solar energy and electricity to help lower overall 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. The SunSource™ Comfort 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 a lot of money each year compared to a standard heat pump. One solar panel provides freely available climate-friendly energy to offset 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 results in more consistent comfort. Plus it's specifically developed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for added comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille utilizes patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology that minimizes the noise of airflow passing through the unit, providing a quieter environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to stifle operating sound, thereby exhibiting low sound pollution.
Constructed of heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and evaluated in the harshest environments to offer 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 assures steadfast operation and fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (excludes the solar panel).
SunSource™ is recommended as the first product a Fort Worth consumer needs to consider when learning about an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). While 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.
