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

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 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 expenses. In fact, it may 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, collect 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 gathered but not needed by your air conditioner can be taken advantage of to power electronics and small appliances, and if energy still remains, it can potentially be sold back to your utility company.

So, how might you know if solar-ready air conditioning is a great 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:

  • 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 costs.
