Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning. When you’re using free energy from the sun to power your house, you’re sure to significantly lower utility costs. You only need a system to capture this energy. That’s where we mention the SunSource® Home Energy System. How can solar energy reduce utility costs? Each solar module takes in energy and tranforms it into electricity that’s used mostly to power your HVAC systems, such as your air conditioner and furnace. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 48 percent of the energy used in a typical U.S. home comes from heating and cooling. Just imagine, even if your solar energy system only produces enough electricity for the AC and furnace, you can still potentially cut your utility bill in half every year. However, the more modules you install, the more electricity you could create. Energy that isn’t used for your heating and cooling equipment will be used to power other appliances in your home, such as your washer and dryer, or lights and any other items you plug into an outlet. We’re talking TVs, chargers – anything! Now if your solar energy system is generating electricity for these devices, also, you’re significantly reducing your dependence on the utility company. In fact, each month you may find yourself paying less and less to the utility company at all. What’s even better is that with net-metering, you can still take power from the grid if necessary, and you’ll be credited for any surplus power your system generates that feeds back into the utility’s grid. Find out how these residential solar systems work. ENERGY STAR® qualified The Lennox® SunSource system earned ENERGY STAR qualification for meeting certain U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines for energy efficiency.
