Solar Makes Sense for Home Heating and Cooling

Have you ever considered solar to help offset your energy usage?

Heating and cooling costs account for up to 56% of the average homeowners’ energy costs and today’s heating and air conditioning systems are far more energy-efficient than those on the market just a few years ago.  Some manufacturers also offer heating and A/C systems with integrated solar technology, and these units can reduce your monthly energy bills by as much as 50%.

Solar heating and air conditioning systems offer a number of benefits. In addition to reducing your monthly energy costs, solar energy reduces your dependence on the electric grid which can be a huge benefit during local electrical outages caused by excessive demand and severe weather.

Solar systems also reduce your carbon footprint which is good for the environment.

Finally, going solar also allows you to take advantage of various federal, state and local incentives, including tax credits. Check with your local electric utility to see if they offer additional incentives.

The Lennox Solar SunSource Home Energy System is an ideal choice. In addition to providing electric power for your heating and A/C unit, the SunSource system also generates power for your lights and small appliances.

To learn more about the advantages of solar heating and cooling, contact your local heating and air conditioning, contractor.  They’ll be able to offer advice on the types of solar HVAC systems available and give you an idea of much money you can save by converting from your current system.
