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

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 decrease that cost in a greener way is a major consideration to many London homeowners. The question is this: Why hasn’t someone built an air conditioning system that can keep our family cool 24/7, without worrying about escalating energy costs or the impact on the environment?

Enter the idea of a solar assisted air conditioner. Now Roy Inch & Sons 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! So here is the system you’ve been waiting for - the first integrated solar-assisted residential heating and air conditioning system: The SunSource™ Comfort System from Lennox®:

Environmentally Responsible

The industry's first solar-assisted central heat pump utilizes solar energy and electricity to help lower overall home electric usage. Chlorine-free R410A refrigerant allows remarkable comfort without encountering a costly environmental toll.

ENERGY STAR® Qualified

The system meets or exceeds U.S. EPA guidelines for energy efficiency. The SunSource™ Comfort 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 hundreds of dollars a 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 operates at low speed most of the time, which means it's inexpensive to operate and allows 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 incorporates patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology that minimizes the noise of airflow passing through the unit, providing a virtually silent environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to stifle operating sound, thereby exhibiting low sound pollution.

Reliable Performance

Manufactured with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and evaluated in the most intense environments to offer 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 confirms steadfast operation and fast troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (not including the solar panel).

Additional Thoughts

SunSource™ is the first product a London consumer 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 climate, the environment-friendly features of the SunSource Comfort System make it a system of choice for today’s energy and cost-conscious families.
