Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from True Temp Heating & Air Inc.

When you’re using the sun’s energy to power your home, you’re going to experience lower utility costs. All you need is a system to harvest this energy. That’s where a solar energy system like the Lennox® SunSource® comes in.

How can solar energy reduce utility costs?

Each solar module takes in energy and turns it into electricity that’s used mainly to power your HVAC equipment, such as your air conditioner and furnace. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 48 percent of a typical U.S. home’s energy consumption comes from heating and cooling. Just consider this, even if your solar energy system only converts enough electricity for the AC and furnace, you can still potentially cut your utility bill in half every year.

However, the more modules you install, the more electricity you could produce. Energy that isn’t used for your heating and cooling equipment will be used to power other appliances in your home, such as your refrigerator and oven, or lights and any other items you plug into an outlet. We’re talking TVs, computers – anything! Now if your solar energy system is generating electricity for these devices, also, you’re significantly cutting back your dependence on the utility company. In fact, each month you may find yourself paying less and less to the utility company at all. What’s even sweeter is that with net-metering, you can still utilize power from the grid if you need to, and you’ll be credited for any additional power your system generates that goes back into the utility’s grid.
