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®:
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.
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.
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).
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.
