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

March 19, 2015

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 decrease that cost in a greener way is a priority to many Clearwater homeowners. The question is this: When will someone create an air conditioning system that can keep our home cool 24/7, without worrying about increased energy costs or negatively impact our environment?

We have an answer: 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! Introducing the first integrated solar-assisted residential heating and air conditioning system: The SunSource™ Comfort System from Lennox®:

Environmentally Sensitive

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. 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. 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 most of the time, which means it's less expense 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.

Quiet Operation

The SilentComfort™ fan grille utilizes patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to reduce the sound of airflow leaving the unit, providing a virtually silent environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to soften the operating sound, thereby exhibiting low sound pollution.

Reliable Performance

Built with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and evaluated in the most intense environments to provide supreme durability, the system also comes with the original onboard cooling system diagnostic device, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which always monitors system performance and confirms reliable operation and fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (the solar panel itself is not included).

Other Factors

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.
