What Options Do You Have for Solar Air Conditioning in Marietta?

Technology

Summer in Marietta can tend to bring with it some scorching hot days and the possibility for some unkind 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 ton in utility costs. In fact, it could save so much that it’ll pay for itself in a quick few years. After that, all that savings comes back to you.

So, what is solar-ready air conditioning? A solar-ready air conditioner is essentially a traditional air conditioner that uses 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 created is first used to heat and cool your home. Energy that’s gathered 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.
