What Options Do You Have for Solar Air Conditioning in San Angelo?

Summer in San Angelo can tend to bring with it some really hot days and the potential for some unkind cooling bills. What if we told you there’s a way to dodge that costly energy spike in the summer? A solar air conditioner can keep you cool all summer without costing you a ton in utility bills. In fact, it could save so much that it’ll pay for itself in a short few years. After that, all that savings goes straight into 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 created 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 can you know if solar-ready air conditioning is a great choice for you? Ponder these questions and, if your answers are mostly “yes,” give Air-Dynamics Inc a call and we’ll help you get started with solar power:
