With the dog days of summer typically comes the buzz about air conditioning costs. In the era of sustainable thinking and living, how to lower that cost in a greener way is foremost on many consumers’ minds. The question is this: When will someone create an air conditioning system that can keep our home cool 24/7, but not worry about increased energy costs or the environmental impact?
We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now TML Service Experts 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 utilizes solar energy and electricity to noticeably decrease home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant provides outstanding comfort without encountering 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. Remember to also check on any state or local municipality incentives that may save you more money for being eco-friendly.
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. The solar panel facilitates freely available renewable energy to counterbalance the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor runs at low speed the majority of the time, which means it's inexpensive to operate and provides more consistent comfort. Plus it's specifically developed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for enhanced comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille incorporates patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology that minimizes the noise of airflow exiting the unit, providing a quieter environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to muffle operating sound, thereby exhibiting low sound pollution.
Constructed of heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and tested in the most intense environments to provide top durability, the system also comes with the first onboard cooling system diagnostics in the industry, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which continuously monitors system performance and confirms reliable operation and quick troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (not including the solar panel).
SunSource™ should be the first product a Boise 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 ideal system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
