With the dog days of summer typically comes the buzz about air conditioning costs. In the era of sustainable thinking and living, how to lower that cost in a greener way is a priority to many Winnipeg homeowners. The question is this: Why can’t we have 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?
We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Winnipeg Supply Service Experts knows what you’re thinking - “Someday it will happen, maybe another five years at least.” Believe it or not… 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 noticeably decrease home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant permits remarkable 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. Remember to also check on any state or local municipality incentives that may save you more money for being eco-friendly.
Unbelievable 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. A single solar panel facilitates freely available renewable energy to counterweight the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor operates at low speed most of the time, which means it's inexpensive to operate and allows more consistent comfort. In addition, it's specifically built to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for added comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille utilizes patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to reduce the sound of airflow leaving the unit, providing a quieter environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to stifle operating sound, producing very low sound pollution.
Manufactured with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and evaluated in the harshest environments to ensure top durability, the system also comes with the original onboard cooling system diagnostic device, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which always monitors system performance and promises dependable operation and fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (the solar panel itself is not included).
SunSource™ is recommended as the first product a Winnipeg customer needs to consider when learning about 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 preferred system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
