Why You Should Consider a Solar A/C System in Atlanta

March 19, 2015

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 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, and not have to worry about escalating energy costs or the impact on the environment?

The answer is a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Peachtree Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning knows what you’re thinking - “Innovation like that will eventually come down the road, maybe another five years at least.” But you don’t need to wait… it’s already here, right now... today! We are happy to share with you the first integrated solar-assisted residential heating and air conditioning system: The SunSource™ Comfort System from Lennox®:

Environmentally Responsible

The industry's top solar-assisted central heat pump utilizes solar energy and electricity to noticeably decrease home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant allows remarkable comfort without encountering 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. Also, many states and local municipalities have their own tax credits available, so make sure you explore those additional ways to save.

Extreme 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 offers freely available renewable energy to counterweight the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor runs at low speed a significant amount of the time, which means it's less expense to operate and allows more consistent comfort. Finally, it's specifically built to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for greater comfort control.

Quiet Operation

The SilentComfort™ fan grille uses patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology that minimizes the noise of airflow passing through the unit, providing a tranquil environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to soften the operating sound, producing very low sound pollution.

Reliable Performance

Constructed of heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and tested in the most extreme environments to offer top durability, the system also comes with the industry-leading onboard cooling system diagnostic tool, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which always monitors system performance and confirms dependable operation and quick troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (not including the solar panel).

Other Thoughts

SunSource™ is recommended as the first product a Atlanta 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 climate, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it the ideal system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
