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

Technology

Summer in Tomball tends 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 get around that costly energy spike in the summer? A solar air conditioner can keep you cool all summer without costing you a lot in utility expenses. In fact, it can save so much that it’ll pay for itself in a quick 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 basically 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 taken advantage of 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 option for you? Think through these questions and, if your answers are mostly “yes,” give Premium Air Services LLC 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 prevent you from benefitting from solar panels?

If you’re uncertain of your answer to any of these questions, Premium Air Services LLC can help.

Many people are concerned with the monetary investment involved with solar-ready air conditioning. Over time, your reduced utility costs will pay you back, plus years of added savings. Check out 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 could receive federal rebates on your investment and you might 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 increase 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 bills.
