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

Technology

Summer in Anaheim inevitably brings with it some very hot days and the potential for some unpleasant 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 costs. In fact, it may save so much that it’ll pay for itself in a matter of a 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 takes advantage of solar power. Solar panels, like those in the Lennox® SunSource® Home Energy System, captures the sun’s radiant energy and takes 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 remaining, it can potentially be sold back to your utility company.

So, how might you know if solar-ready air conditioning is the right way to go for you? Ponder these questions and, if your answers are mostly “yes,” give Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. a call and we can help you get started with solar power:

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

If you’re uncertain of your answer to any of these questions, Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. can help.

Most people are concerned with the expense involved with solar-ready air conditioning. Over time, your reduction in utility expenses will pay you back, plus years of additional 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 might 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 get 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 indicated that home values increase by an average of $20 for every $1 reduction in annual utility expenses.
