With the dog days of summer typically comes the buzz about air conditioning costs. In the era of eco-friendly thinking and living, how to lower that cost in a greener way is foremost on many consumers’ minds. The question is this: Why can’t we have an air conditioning system that can keep our home cool 24/7, but not worry about higher energy costs or the environmental impact?
We have an answer: a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Bryant Heating & Cooling 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®:
The industry's top solar-assisted central heat pump uses a combination of solar energy and electricity to help lower overall home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant provides exceptional comfort without incurring 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. Remember to also check on any state or local municipality incentives that may save you more money for being eco-friendly.
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 facilitates freely available renewable energy to counterbalance the electric usage of the heating and cooling system. A two-stage scroll compressor runs at low speed a significant amount of the time, which means it's less expense to operate and results in more consistent comfort. Plus it's specifically built to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for added comfort control.
The SilentComfort™ fan grille incorporates patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology to lessen the sound 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.
Manufactured with 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 always monitors system performance and assures dependable operation and fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (excludes the solar panel).
SunSource™ is the first product a Windsor homeowner needs to consider when exploring an air conditioner or HVAC system replacement (the second being a hybrid home comfort system). While heat pumps are not for use in every climate, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it the preferred system for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
