Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from Red Dog Cooling, Heating, & Plumbing.

When you’re using free energy from the sun to power your house, you’re sure to significantly lower utility costs. All you need is a system to harvest this energy. That’s where a solar energy system like the Lennox® SunSource® comes in.

How can solar energy reduce utility costs?

Each solar module takes in energy and converts it to electricity that’s used mainly to power your HVAC systems, such as your air conditioner and furnace. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 48 percent of the typical U.S. home’s energy usage comes from heating and cooling. Just consider this, even if your solar energy system only generates enough electricity for the AC and furnace, you can still potentially cut your electric 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 refrigerator and oven, or lights and any other devices you plug into an outlet. We’re talking TVs, chargers – anything! Now if your solar energy system is providing electricity to these devices, also, you’re considerably cutting back your dependence on the utility company. Actually, you could find yourself paying less and less to the utility company at all. What’s even sweeter 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 goes back into the utility’s grid.
