Summer is finally on the way and with it comes air conditioning and any needed maintenance to your system.. 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 family cool 24/7, and not have to worry about escalating energy costs or the impact on the environment?
Enter the idea of a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Midland Air 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! 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 leading solar-assisted central heat pump uses a combination of solar energy and electricity to help lower overall home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant ensures remarkable comfort without exacting 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.
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. One solar panel facilitates freely available renewable energy to counterweight the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor functions at low speed a significant amount of the time, which means it's less expense to operate and provides more consistent comfort. Finally, it's specifically developed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for greater comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille uses patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to lessen the commotion 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 tested in the harshest environments to provide top durability, the system also comes with the original onboard cooling system diagnostic device, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which constantly monitors system performance and promises 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 Columbia consumer needs to consider when learning about an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). While 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.
