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

Summer in Dayton can tend to bring with it some very hot days and the possibility for some unkind cooling bills. What if we told you there’s a way to prevent that costly energy spike in the summer? A solar air conditioner can keep you cool all summer without costing you a fortune in utility expenses. In fact, it may save so much that it’ll pay for itself in a short few years. After that, all that savings comes back to you.

So, what is solar-ready air conditioning? A solar-ready air conditioner is very similar to 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 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 captured but not needed by your air conditioner can be used 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 will 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 Jent Mechanical LLC a call and we can help you get started with solar power:

The U.S. government has a Solar Tax Credit, 25D, for homeowners who purchase 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 can also boost the value of your home. Surveys conducted by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development have stated that home values increase by an average of $20 for every $1 reduction in annual utility bills.
