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

March 19, 2015

With the dog days of summer typically comes the buzz about air conditioning costs. In the age of “green” thinking and living, how to decrease that cost in a greener way is a priority to many Edmonton homeowners. The question is this: Why hasn’t someone built an air conditioning system that can keep our house cool 24/7, and not have to worry about higher energy costs or negatively impact our environment?

The answer is a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Rob's Albertan Service Experts knows what you’re thinking - “Someday it will happen, maybe another five years at least.” Actually… 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®:

Eco-Friendly

The industry's leading solar-assisted central heat pump combines solar energy and electricity to help lower overall home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant provides remarkable 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 you significant dollars each year compared to a standard heat pump. One solar panel provides freely available clean energy to counterbalance 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 low-cost to operate and allows more consistent comfort. In addition, it's specifically designed 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 to lessen the noise of airflow passing through the unit, providing a virtually silent environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to stifle operating sound, resulting in extremely low sound pollution.

Reliable Performance

Constructed of 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 constantly monitors system performance and assures dependable operation and quick troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (excludes the solar panel).

Additional Considerations

SunSource™ is the first product a Edmonton 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 a system of choice for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
