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

Technology

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

So, what is solar-ready air conditioning? A solar-ready air conditioner is essentially 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 produced 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 can you know if solar-ready air conditioning is a good option for you? Ponder these questions and, if your answers are mostly “yes,” give House of Heating Incorporated a call and we can help you get started with solar power:

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

If you’re uncertain of your answer to any of these questions, House of Heating Incorporated can help.

Most people are concerned with the expense involved with solar-ready air conditioning. Over time, your lower utility costs will pay you back, plus years of additional savings. Take a look at 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 can receive federal rebates on your investment and you may even be eligible for state incentives.

The U.S. government offers a Solar Tax Credit, 25D, for homeowners who purchase and install equipment that uses solar energy to produce 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 boost 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 expenses.
