Here in the Pinehurst, Texas, area, we experience a warm climate throughout much of the year. Keeping your home cool and comfortable can become very expensive, especially during the summer months, but solar options make cooling more affordable.
SunSource Solar Modules
Lennox is well-known in the HVAC industry as one of the top manufacturers of heating and cooling products. Its product line now includes the SunSource Home Energy System, which allows the user to create and harness solar energy. Using your own storage of solar energy reduces the need to rely on electric companies for this type of power, helping to lower your energy bills each month. You could even qualify for a credit on your electricity bill if you don’t end up using all of the solar energy you store in a month.
How It Works
As the system attracts and generates solar energy from the sun, it will first use that stored energy to provide power to the heat pump and/or air conditioner, depending on which you are currently using. But if neither the heat pump or air conditioner is running, the solar energy also works to provide power to any electronics and appliances within your home. The extra power that you don’t use goes back to the utility company, which can earn you a credit, as mentioned above. The installation process is simple and doesn’t require major home renovations or changes, which is necessary for many other solar energy options.
Benefits of Solar Energy
Not only can using solar energy save you a lot of money on heating and cooling costs, but it can also reduce your impact on the environment. The typical homeowner uses a lot of energy to keep the home comfortable, which requires power plants to generate that electricity. Power plants produce greenhouse gas emissions, which are harmful to our environment. As people use less power, the power plants can operate less. Instead of relying on any other type of power source, solar energy simply harnesses the power of the sun to reduce the cost of the HVAC operations in your home.
Cost of SolarSource
Investing in a solar-powered system might seem like it’s way out of your price range, but the options available through SunSource Home Energy Systems are surprisingly affordable. You can simply upgrade to a Lennox high-efficiency heat pump and/or air conditioner, which will come ready to use with solar energy. Start small with a few solar modules, and add more as your budget allows. You only need four to six modules to get started with solar energy, but as you increase the number, you'll find that you have more solar energy available for use.
Homeowners may also qualify for tax credits when they upgrade to solar-powered HVAC systems, which can help offset the initial cost.

Here in the southeastern Texas, the climate is ideal for heat pumps and solar energy because of our warm climate. A heat pump is more efficient than a furnace and works well in areas that don’t get too cold during the wintertime. Using a solar-compatible heat pump can further increase energy efficiency and save you a lot of money on heating costs.
