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

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 a major consideration to many Winnipeg homeowners. 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 escalating energy costs or the environmental impact?

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! 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 leading solar-assisted central heat pump uses a combination of solar energy and electricity to noticeably decrease 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. Don’t forget to check with your local utility provider for any province tax credit opportunities.

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. The solar panel facilitates freely available clean energy to offset 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 inexpensive to operate and provides more consistent comfort. Finally, it’s specifically developed to work with a Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for greater comfort control.

Quiet Operation

The SilentComfort™ fan grille uses patent-pending, vortex-suppression technology that minimizes the noise of airflow leaving the unit, providing a quieter environment. A fully insulated compressor compartment uses vibration-isolating mounts to muffle operating sound, resulting in extremely low sound pollution.

Reliable Performance

Manufactured with heavy-gauge, pre-painted steel and tested in the harshest environments to offer top durability, the system also comes with the first onboard cooling system diagnostics in the industry, the Lennox® System Operations Monitor, which constantly monitors system performance and assures steadfast operation and prompt troubleshooting. A 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components (the solar panel itself is not included).

Other Thoughts

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