What Options Do You Have for Solar Air Conditioning in Manassas Park?

Summer in Manassas Park can tend to bring with it some really hot days and the chance for some unsettling cooling bills. What if we told you there’s a way to get around that costly energy spike in the summer? A solar air conditioner can keep you cool through summer without costing you a ton in utility expenses. In fact, it can 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 basically a traditional air conditioner that uses solar power. Solar panels, like those in the Lennox® SunSource® Home Energy System, gather the sun’s radiant energy and sends 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 gathered but not needed by your air conditioner can be used to power electronics and small appliances, and if energy is remaining, it can potentially be sold back to your utility company.

So, how will you know if solar-ready air conditioning is the right choice for you? Consider these questions and, if your answers are mostly “yes,” give Woody's Sudden Service Inc a call today to get started with solar power:
