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

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 service costs. In the age of “green” thinking and living, how to reduce that cost in a greener way is a major consideration to many Oakville homeowners. The question is this: When will someone create an air conditioning system that can keep our home 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 Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning 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®:

Eco-Friendly

The industry's leading solar-assisted central heat pump combines solar energy and electricity to reduce home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant allows outstanding comfort without incurring 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. 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 a lot of money each year compared to a standard heat pump. A single solar panel provides freely available renewable energy to counterbalance 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 low-cost to operate and provides more consistent comfort. Finally, it's specifically developed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for added comfort control.

Quiet Operation

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

Reliable Performance

Constructed of heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and tested 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 constantly monitors system performance and promises reliable operation and quick troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (not including the solar panel).

Additional Considerations

SunSource™ is recommended as the first product a Oakville homeowner needs to consider when researching an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). Even though heat pumps are not for use in every region of the country, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it the preferred system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
