Technology

Summer in Waxahachie 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 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 back in to your wallet.

So, what is solar-ready air conditioning? A solar-ready air conditioner is essentially a traditional air conditioner that utilizes solar power. Solar panels, like those in the Lennox® SunSource® Home Energy System, gather the sun’s radiant energy and routes 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 collected but not needed by your air conditioner can be utilized to power electronics and small appliances, and if energy still remains, it can potentially be sold back to your utility company.

So, how can you know if solar-ready air conditioning is a great way to go for you? Consider these questions and, if your answers are mostly “yes,” give C&C Refrigeration Inc. a call and we can help you get started with solar power:

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

If you’re not sure of your answer to any of these questions, C&C Refrigeration Inc. can help.

Most people are concerned with the cost involved with solar-ready air conditioning. Over time, your lower utility costs will pay you back, plus years of extra savings. Check out 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 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 may 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.
