Summer is finally on the way and with it comes air conditioning and any needed maintenance to your system.. In the era of eco-friendly thinking and living, how to reduce 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, but not worry about escalating energy costs or negatively impact our environment?
Enter the idea of a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Midway Services 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 leading solar-assisted central heat pump utilizes solar energy and electricity to noticeably decrease home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant permits exceptional 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. Don’t forget to check with your local utility provider for any state tax credit opportunities.
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. One solar panel provides freely available climate-friendly energy to counterweight 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 results in more consistent comfort. Finally, it's specifically developed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for enhanced comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille utilizes patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology that minimizes the noise of airflow leaving the unit, providing a quieter environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to muffle operating sound, thereby exhibiting low sound pollution.
Built with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and evaluated in the most intense environments to provide maximum durability, the system also comes with the original onboard cooling system diagnostic device, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which always monitors system performance and assures dependable operation and fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (the solar panel itself is not included).
SunSource™ is recommended as the first product a Clearwater customer 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 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.
