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 age of “green” thinking and living, how to reduce that cost in a greener way is a major consideration to many Haltom City 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?
Enter the idea of a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Stark Services knows what you’re thinking - “It’s going to be a thing of the future, 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 incurring 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. Don’t forget to check with your local utility provider for any state tax credit opportunities.
Unbelievable 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 offers 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 the majority of the time, which means it's inexpensive 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 sound of airflow exiting 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 most extreme 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 confirms steadfast operation and quick 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 Haltom City consumer needs to consider when learning about 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 the ideal system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
