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

March 19, 2015

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 reduce that cost in a greener way is a priority to many Kitchener homeowners. The question is this: When will someone create an air conditioning system that can keep our house cool 24/7, but not worry about increased energy costs or the environmental impact?

The answer is a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts 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! Introducing the first integrated solar-assisted residential heating and air conditioning system: The SunSource™ Comfort System from Lennox®:

Environmentally Responsible

The industry's first solar-assisted central heat pump utilizes solar energy and electricity to help lower overall 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. 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. 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 a lot of money each 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. Plus it's specifically developed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for added comfort control.

Quiet Operation

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

Reliable Performance

Manufactured with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and examined in the most intense environments to ensure 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 assures reliable operation and prompt troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (not including the solar panel).

Additional Factors

SunSource™ should be the first product a Kitchener consumer needs to consider when exploring an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). Although heat pumps are not for use in every region of the country, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it the preferred system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
