Why You Should Consider a Solar A/C System in Kansas City

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 eco-friendly thinking and living, how to reduce that cost in a greener way is a major consideration to many Kansas City homeowners. The question is this: When will someone create an air conditioning system that can keep our house cool 24/7, and not have to worry about higher energy costs or the environmental impact?

The answer is a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Neal Harris Service Experts knows what you’re thinking - “Innovation like that will eventually come down the road, maybe another five years at least.” Actually… 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 top solar-assisted central heat pump uses a combination of solar energy and electricity to noticeably decrease home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant ensures outstanding 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 hundreds of dollars a year compared to a standard heat pump. A single solar panel offers freely available renewable energy to counterweight the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor functions at low speed the majority of the time, which means it's inexpensive to operate and provides 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 uses patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology that minimizes the commotion of airflow leaving the unit, providing a quieter environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to soften the operating sound, resulting in extremely low sound pollution.

Reliable Performance

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

Additional Thoughts

SunSource™ is recommended as the first product a Kansas City customer needs to consider when researching an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). While 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.
