Use Solar Products to Help Lower Utility Costs.

When you’re using free energy from the sun to power your house, you’re sure to significantly lower utility costs. You only need a system to take in 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 mostly to power your HVAC systems, such as your air conditioner and furnace. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 48 percent of the energy used in a typical U.S. home comes from heating and cooling. Just imagine, 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 produce. Energy that isn’t used for your heating and cooling systems will be used to power other appliances in your home, such as your washer and dryer, or lights and any other items you plug into an outlet. We’re talking TVs, computers – anything! Now if your solar energy system is generating electricity for these devices, too, you’re substantially reducing your dependence on the utility company. In fact, each month you may find yourself paying less and less to the utility company at all. What’s even sweeter is that with net-metering, you can still take power from the grid if needed, and you’ll be credited for any extra power your system generates that feeds back into the utility’s grid.
