Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from Ken Parker Service 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 primarily to power your HVAC systems, such as your air conditioner and furnace. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 48 percent of the typical U.S. home’s energy usage comes from heating and cooling. Just consider this, even if your solar energy system only produces enough electricity for the AC and furnace, you can still potentially cut your energy bill in half every year.

However, the more modules you install, the more electricity you could generate. 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 producing electricity for these devices, too, you’re significantly decreasing your dependence on the utility company. Actually, you could 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 additional power your system generates that goes back into the utility’s grid.

ENERGY STAR® qualified

The Lennox® SunSource system reached ENERGY STAR qualification for meeting certain U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines for energy efficiency. You can see which have been recognized with title by looking for the blue ENERGY STAR label on the product’s packaging or website. When the solar energy system is used with other ENERGY STAR-qualified products, such as our Lennox Signature® Series air conditioners and gas furnaces , you’ll save even more.
