(Submit Articles) New for 2010, Lennox has begun to release their new solar powered heat pump and air conditioner product lineup. Referred to as "SunSource Solar Ready" units, these new heating and cooling units come with built-in controls and electronics to allow the home owner to attach anywhere from 1 to 15 solar power power collectors to each unit. However, it is not necessary to use solar power to run these SunSource units as they are also able to use your home's electrical supply just like all other heat pumps and air conditioners do. This allows the financial flexability of installing a heat pump or air conditioner now and to add on panels in the future.
In more southern areas, with good south-facing exposure, the solar panels can collect almost 300% more power than is required to operate the a/c or heat pump. Through the addition of the iComfort controller / thermostat, the excess power collected by the solar panels can be fed back into your home's electrical system. The excess power can even be sold back to your electrical utility's grid (if this service is offered in your local area) to further reduce your utility monthly costs.
Also, consider the green environmental impact is we were to remove the entire air conditioning load from the existing electrical power grid. A few less brown-outs would be appreciated, too.
Current models available are the XP21 Heat Pump, the XP17 Heat Pump and the XC17 Air Conditioner. New models are expected to be released by Lennox throughout the year, so stay tuned.
