Lower Utility Costs 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 capture this energy. That’s where the SunSource® Home Energy System comes in. How can solar energy reduce utility costs? Each solar module collects energy and turns it into electricity that’s used mainly to power your HVAC units, such as your air conditioner and furnace. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 48 percent of the energy used in a typical U.S. home comes from heating and cooling. Just think, even if your solar energy system only produces 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 products will be used to power other appliances in your home, such as your refrigerator and washing machine, or lights and any other items you plug into an outlet. We’re talking TVs, chargers – anything! Now if your solar energy system is generating electricity for these devices, as well, you’re substantially cutting back your dependence on the utility company. 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 necessary, and you’ll be credited for any surplus power your system generates that is put back into the utility’s grid. Find out how these residential solar systems work. ENERGY STAR® qualified The Lennox® SunSource system reached ENERGY STAR qualification for meeting certain U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines for energy efficiency.
