Solar energy: A brilliant idea for saving money—and the planet.
A Lennox SunSource® solar HVAC system is good for the planet—and great for your budget. While initial installation costs may be slightly higher, a SunSource system lets you harness a completely free and reliable energy source—the sun—to save up to 50% on your heating and cooling energy costs.
Here’s how it works:
Solar panels, or modules, comprised of photovoltaic (PV) cells, capture and convert solar energy into electricity that can be used to power appliances, lights and other devices in your home. During sunlit hours, the PV unit powers your heat pump or air conditioner, or if your unit isn’t running, the solar electricity can be diverted to operate appliances or lights. At night, when there’s no sun, you will still be connected to the grid, so your electrical service will continue without interruption. *
A customized system:
Begin your system with a heat pump or air conditioner from the Lennox Signature® collection. These high-efficiency units are also solar ready, and allow you to add up to 16 solar modules for each outdoor unit. With a SunSource system you can start small, with only one or two modules, and add as you wish.
Your SunSource system automatically sends performance information for each solar module to a monitoring website, where you can see your system status and energy production. See the savings, feel the comfort with a SunSource system from Environment Masters!
* Stand-alone systems are also available and provide an ideal solution for homes or structures in rural areas where electrical service isn’t readily available.
