 Want to slice your utility bills in half? The solar-ready system from Lennox uses solar energy to reduce the amount of electricity you use in your home in Westchester or New York City. Here are four ways this solar system could save you cash.

1. It Works With SunSource

 
Lennox solar-ready heat pumps and air conditioners work with SunSource, an energy system that uses solar power and generates free, renewable and sustainable energy for homes and businesses. While the Lennox solar-ready system provides efficient, low-cost energy on its own, the addition of SunSource technology saves you even more money on your utility bills. In fact, you could save around 109 percent on heating and cooling costs per year and reduce 4,903 pounds of carbon dioxide per year — the equivalent of planting 56 trees.
 

2. This Central Air Unit Cools and Heats Your Home First

 
The solar-ready system cools and heats your home or business before it does anything else. Once cooling and heating demands have been met, the system powers other appliances and electronics in your property, such as lights, kettles and fridge-freezers. In short, the technology reduces electric usage, saving you money. If you're looking for a professional HVAC expert, A. Borrelli Mechanical can install this system in your home or business.
 

3. You Could Get Tax Credits, Too

 
Lennox solar-ready air conditioners and air pumps could save you more cash if you use energy tax credits. The Residential Renewable Energy Tax Credit, available through 2021, offers federal tax incentives for homeowners who use solar energy to produce electricity. You could receive up to 9 percent of the total retail cost of solar modules and up to 30 percent of the cost of installation in credits. Also, the Federal HVAC Credit, which is available until the end of 2016, covers up to 10 percent of the cost of solar modules (up to $500) or a specific amount up to $300.
 

4. The Central Air Conditioner Has a High SEER Rating

 
Products in the solar-ready system have a high SEER rating — a measurement that estimates the cooling output of an air conditioning unit — that ranges from 18.5 to 26. Old air conditioners have a SEER rating of 6 or less, so purchasing a brand new system could cut your bills in half.
 
Looking for money-saving air conditioning in Westchester or New York City? The solar-ready system from Lennox has a high SEER rating, cools and heats your home or business quickly, and works with the latest SunSource technology. You could be eligible for tax credits when you take advantage of this efficient solar system, too.
