Summer is finally on the way and with it comes air conditioning and any needed maintenance to your system.. 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 can’t we have an air conditioning system that can keep our house cool 24/7, without worrying about escalating energy costs or the environmental impact?
The answer is a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Boehmers/Cronin Emery Home Services by Enercare 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! We are happy to share with you 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 utilizes solar energy and electricity to reduce home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant allows 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.
Tremendous 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 operates at low speed the majority of the time, which means it's inexpensive to operate and provides more consistent comfort. In addition, it's specifically developed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for added comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille incorporates patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to reduce the sound of airflow passing through the unit, providing a tranquil environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to soften the operating sound, resulting in extremely low sound pollution.
Manufactured with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and examined in the most intense environments to provide top durability, the system also comes with the industry-leading onboard cooling system diagnostic tool, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which constantly monitors system performance and confirms reliable operation and prompt 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 Kitchener consumer needs to consider when researching 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 preferred system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
