With the dog days of summer typically comes the buzz about air conditioning costs. In the age of “green” thinking and living, how to decrease that cost in a greener way is foremost on many consumers’ minds. The question is this: Why hasn’t someone built an air conditioning system that can keep our home cool 24/7, without worrying about increased energy costs or negatively impact our environment?
Enter the idea of a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Jack Nelson Service Experts 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! 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 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 remarkable comfort without incurring 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. Remember to also check on any state or local municipality incentives that may save you more money for being eco-friendly.
Tremendous 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 most of the time, which means it's inexpensive 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.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille incorporates patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to lessen the sound of airflow passing through the unit, providing a quieter environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to muffle operating sound, resulting in extremely low sound pollution.
Constructed of heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and evaluated in the most intense environments to provide supreme durability, the system also comes with the industry-leading onboard cooling system diagnostic tool, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which continuously 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).
SunSource™ is the first product a Tulsa consumer needs to consider when learning about 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 preferred system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
