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

Summer in Dallas tends to bring with it some very hot days and the possibility 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 bills. In fact, it can 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 very similar to a traditional air conditioner that takes advantage of solar power. Solar panels, like those in the Lennox® SunSource® Home Energy System, gather 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 generated is first used to heat and cool your home. Energy that’s collected but not needed by your air conditioner can be utilized to power electronics and small appliances, and if energy still remains, it can potentially be sold back to your utility company.

So, how will you know if solar-ready air conditioning is a good way to go for you? Ponder these questions and, if your answers are mostly “yes,” give Tri County Air Care LLC a call and we’ll help you get started with solar power:

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

If you’re unsure of your answer to any of these questions, Tri County Air Care LLC can help.

Many people are concerned with the expense involved with solar-ready air conditioning. Over time, your reduced utility expenses will pay you back, plus years of extra savings. Check out this solar calculator to get a good idea of the money you’ll save plus how much better it will be for the planet. What’s even better is that you could receive federal rebates on your investment and you might even be eligible for state incentives.

The U.S. government provides a Solar Tax Credit, 25D, for homeowners who purchase and install equipment that uses solar energy to produce 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 shown that home values increase by an average of $20 for every $1 reduction in annual utility bills.
