Are you tired of paying more and more each year for heat and electricity? Are you becoming more aware of the hazards of carbon emissions and want to do your part to reduce global warming? Adding solar energy to supplement your home’s heating, cooling and electricity needs has never been easier.
Saving Money With Solar Energy
Using abundant, free solar energy in your home is easier than ever, and solar energy savings can quickly add up. An added incentive is the solar energy tax credits available to U.S. homeowners that invest in solar HVAC products for their residence. These credits are offered through 2016, but why wait to take advantage of these solar energy savings?
To get started, contact a quality Lennox HVAC contractor. Together, evaluate your roof to see if it gets enough sun for solar cells to make sense. You’ll need about 15 square feet of roofing space for a solar panel. Before you decide on a solar system, it’s also wise to check any zoning regulations and homeowner association rules to make sure that solar systems are permitted.
Solar Products For Your Home
A variety of HVAC systems are available for residential use and more come to the marketplace each year. The most comprehensive system uses solar panels that sit on your roof and collect and store the energy from the sun. This energy can be used to power your lights, appliances, air conditioning unit and even your electronic equipment. Packages are even available that give you 24/7 real-time access via the Internet on how your system is working and how much energy it is generating. Solar energy can also be used to power your electric heat pump and water heater.
If you’re ready to start reducing your carbon footprint by harvesting the sun’s energy, let Powers Heating & Air help you choose the solar system that’s right for your home and your family’s needs.
