Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from KDM Service Corporation. 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 take in 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 turns it into electricity that’s used primarily to power your HVAC equipment, such as your air conditioner and furnace. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 48 percent of a typical U.S. home’s energy consumption 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 likely cut your utility bill in half every year. However, the more modules you install, the more electricity you could produce. Energy that isn’t used for your heating and cooling products will be used to power other appliances in your home, such as your refrigerator and oven, or lights and any other products you plug into an outlet. We’re talking TVs, chargers – anything! Now if your solar energy system is producing electricity for these devices, too, you’re substantially decreasing your dependence on the utility company. Each month you may find yourself paying less and less to the utility company at all. What’s even sweeter is that with net-metering, you can still use power from the grid if necessary, and you’ll be credited for any extra power your system generates that feeds back into the utility’s grid. Discover how these residential solar systems work. ENERGY STAR® qualified The Lennox® SunSource system received ENERGY STAR qualification for meeting certain U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines for energy efficiency. You can tell which have earned this title by looking for the blue ENERGY STAR label on the product’s packaging or website. When the solar energy system is combined with other ENERGY STAR-qualified products, such as our Lennox Signature® Series air conditioners and gas furnaces , you’ll save even more.
