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

Summer in Denton can tend to bring with it some very hot days and the possibility 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 through summer without costing you a lot 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 comes back to you.

So, what is solar-ready air conditioning? A solar-ready air conditioner is essentially 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 generated is first used to heat and cool your home. Energy that’s captured but not needed by your air conditioner can be taken advantage of 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 can you know if solar-ready air conditioning is a good choice for you? Consider these questions and, if your answers are mostly “yes,” give Oak Point Heating and Air LLC a call and we’ll help you get started with solar power:

  • Do you have an area to place 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?

The U.S. government provides a Solar Tax Credit, 25D, for homeowners who buy 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 could also raise 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 costs.
