If you are considering using green energy in your home, making the switch to a solar HVAC system may be a great option.

Benefits of Solar HVAC Systems

In our increasingly environment-focused society, many people are interested in utilizing green energy - not only for the earth-friendly benefits, but also because they want to be energy efficient and save on utility bills. A solar HVAC system is definitely worth your consideration. Here are two different options for using solar energy:

  1. Heating
  2. It is not only possible to heat our water using solar energy, but we can also use it to heat our air. Warm water and warm air - all though the power of the sun.

  3. Cooling
  4. Solar air conditioning comes in two main forms: 1) a blend of solar and battery or solar and electric called hybrids, and 2) evaporative coolers also referred to as absorption chillers.

Both heating and cooling through solar energy have upfront costs that can reach into the thousands, making them a definite investment. However, like many investments, there are undeniable benefits to switching to a solar HVAC, including:

  • Tax Credits
  • The U.S. federal government offers numerous tax credits for green home improvements, including HVAC units. It is possible to save well over 30% on your purchase as well as your installation, and all federal tax credits are accessible from now through 2016. Contact your HVAC professional to learn how you can qualify.

  • Lower Energy Costs
  • Switching to a solar HVAC unit has a much larger payoff over time. Green energy cuts down on utility bills substantially, adding up to large sums over time. The longer you use solar the more savings you will experience.

Considering 40% of your home's energy comes from HVAC systems, it makes sense to consider the cost-saving benefits solar energy provides. To learn more about how you can take advantage of green energy, contact the pros at Climate Control or call us at 864-269-5576.
