What Options Do You Have for Solar Air Conditioning in Stuart?

Technology

Summer in Stuart can tend to bring with it some very hot days and the chance for some unsettling cooling bills. What if we told you there’s a way to dodge that costly energy spike in the summer? A solar air conditioner can keep you cool all summer without costing you a lot in utility costs. In fact, it could save so much that it’ll pay for itself in a quick few years. After that, all that savings comes back to you.

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, gather the sun’s radiant energy and takes it to the air conditioner after it’s been converted to electrical current. The solar energy that’s generated is first used to heat and cool your home. Energy that’s collected but not needed by your air conditioner can be used to power electronics and small appliances, and if energy is remaining, it can potentially be sold back to your utility company.

So, how will you know if solar-ready air conditioning is the right choice for you? Consider these questions and, if your answers are mostly “yes,” give Breathe Healthier Air Inc a call and we’ll help you get started with solar power:

  • Do you have an area to place solar panels that receives 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 uncertain of your answer to any of these questions, Breathe Healthier Air Inc can help.

A lot of people are concerned with the monetary investment involved with solar-ready air conditioning. Over time, your reduced utility expenses will pay you back, plus years of extra 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 has a Solar Tax Credit, 25D, for homeowners who buy and install equipment that uses solar energy to generate 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 raise 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.
