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

March 19, 2015

Its been a while since that air conditioner was running, but the heat of summer is just around the corner, which means A/C Trip Charges. In the era of sustainable thinking and living, how to decrease that cost in a greener way is a priority to many Charlotte homeowners. The question is this: Why can’t we have an air conditioning system that can keep our family cool 24/7, and not have to worry about escalating energy costs or negatively impact our environment?

Enter the idea of a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Komfort Air knows what you’re thinking - “Innovation like that will eventually come down the road, 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 Responsible

The industry's top solar-assisted central heat pump utilizes solar energy and electricity to noticeably decrease home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant allows remarkable comfort without encountering a costly environmental toll.

ENERGY STAR® Qualified

The system meets or exceeds U.S. EPA guidelines for energy efficiency. This air conditioning and heating 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. The solar panel offers freely available clean energy to counterbalance 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 low-cost to operate and allows more consistent comfort. Finally, it's specifically designed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for enhanced comfort control.

Quiet Operation

The SilentComfort™ fan grille incorporates patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to reduce the noise of airflow passing through the unit, providing a quieter environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to stifle operating sound, producing very low sound pollution.

Reliable Performance

Manufactured with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and tested in the most intense environments to ensure 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 reliable operation and fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (the solar panel itself is not included).

Additional Thoughts

SunSource™ is the first product a Charlotte 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 ideal system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
