What Options Do You Have for Solar Air Conditioning in East Bernard?

Technology

Summer in East Bernard can tend to bring with it some really hot days and the chance for some unkind cooling bills. What if we told you there’s a way to prevent that costly energy spike in the summer? A solar air conditioner can keep you cool throughout summer without costing you a fortune in utility expenses. In fact, it could save so much that it’ll pay for itself in a matter of a few years. After that, all that savings goes straight into your wallet.

So, what is solar-ready air conditioning? A solar-ready air conditioner is essentially a traditional air conditioner that takes advantage of solar power. Solar panels, like those in the Lennox® SunSource® Home Energy System, captures the sun’s radiant energy and sends it to the air conditioner after it’s been converted to electrical current. The solar energy that’s created is first used to heat and cool your home. Energy that’s gathered but not needed by your air conditioner can be used to power electronics and small appliances, and if energy is still left over, it can potentially be sold back to your utility company.

So, how might you know if solar-ready air conditioning is a good choice for you? Think through these questions and, if your answers are mostly “yes,” give E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service a call and we’ll help you get started with solar power:

  • Do you have an area to place solar panels that has unobstructed sunlight?
  • Is this area large enough to house solar panels?
  • Are there any local laws that would prohibit you from benefitting from solar panels?

If you’re not sure of your answer to any of these questions, E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service can help.

Many people are concerned with the cost involved with solar-ready air conditioning. Over time, your lower utility bills will pay you back, plus years of additional savings. View this solar calculator to get a good idea of the money you’ll save plus how much you’ll be helping the planet. What’s even better is that you can receive federal rebates on your investment and you might even be eligible for state incentives.

The U.S. government provides a Solar Tax Credit, 25D, for homeowners who get and install equipment that uses solar energy to create electricity. It covers:

  • Up to 9% of the total retail cost* of the solar-ready air conditioner, when solar modules are applied.
  • 30% of the cost with no upper limit on solar module installation.**

 

Having a solar system could also increase the value of your home. Surveys conducted by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development have shown that home values increase by an average of $20 for every $1 reduction in annual utility costs.
