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

Technology

Summer in Englewood inevitably brings with it some very hot days and the possibility 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 through 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 very similar to a traditional air conditioner that uses solar power. Solar panels, like those in the Lennox® SunSource® Home Energy System, collect 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 taken advantage of 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 a good choice for you? Consider these questions and, if your answers are mostly “yes,” give Symbiont Service Corp a call and we can 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, Symbiont Service Corp can help.

A lot of people are concerned with the expense involved with solar-ready air conditioning. Over time, your reduced utility costs will pay you back, plus years of added savings. View this solar calculator to get a good idea of the money you’ll save plus how much more green you will be. What’s even better is that you might receive federal rebates on your investment and you could 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 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 may also boost the value of your home. Surveys conducted by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development have indicated that home values increase by an average of $20 for every $1 reduction in annual utility expenses.

As you can see, there are a variety of reasons to love solar-ready air conditioning. Call Symbiont Service Corp today at 941-306-4161 to talk about your solar air conditioning choices.
