What Options Do You Have for Solar Air Conditioning in Lake Worth?

Summer in Lake Worth tends to bring with it some scorching 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 throughout summer without costing you a fortune in utility costs. In fact, it can save so much that it’ll pay for itself in a quick few years. After that, all that savings goes back in to your wallet.

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, captures 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 taken advantage of to power electronics and small appliances, and if energy still remains, it can potentially be sold back to your utility company.

So, how might you know if solar-ready air conditioning is a good choice for you? Ponder these questions and, if your answers are mostly “yes,” give Smyth Air Conditioning Inc 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 handle solar panels?
  • Are there any local laws that would prohibit you from benefitting from solar panels?

  • 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.**
