What Options Do You Have for Solar Air Conditioning in Omaha?

Summer in Omaha tends to bring with it some scorching hot days and the chance for some unkind cooling bills. What if we told you there’s a way to get around that costly energy spike in the summer? A solar air conditioner can keep you cool all summer without costing you a fortune in utility bills. In fact, it could save so much that it’ll pay for itself in a short few years. After that, all that savings goes straight into your wallet.

So, what is solar-ready air conditioning? A solar-ready air conditioner is very similar to a traditional air conditioner that uses solar power. Solar panels, like those in the Lennox® SunSource® Home Energy System, collect the sun’s radiant energy and routes it to the air conditioner after it’s been converted to electrical current. The solar energy that’s created is first used to heat and cool your home. Energy that’s captured but not needed by your air conditioner can be taken advantage of to power electronics and small appliances, and if energy is still left over, it can potentially be sold back to your utility company.

So, how might you know if solar-ready air conditioning is a good option for you? Consider these questions and, if your answers are mostly “yes,” give The Frazier Company a call today to get started with solar power:

  • Do you have an area to put solar panels that receives unobstructed sunlight?
  • Is this area large enough to handle solar panels?
  • Are there any local laws that would prohibit you from benefitting from solar panels?

If you’re not sure of your answer to any of these questions, The Frazier Company can help.

Many people are concerned with the monetary investment involved with solar-ready air conditioning. Over time, your reduced utility expenses will pay you back, plus years of extra savings. Check out this solar calculator to get a good idea of the money you’ll save plus how much more green you will be. What’s even better is that you might receive federal rebates on your investment and you might even be eligible for state incentives.

The U.S. government has a Solar Tax Credit, 25D, for homeowners who purchase and install equipment that uses solar energy to create electricity. It covers:

  • Up to 9% of the total retail cost* of the solar-ready air conditioner, when solar modules are applied.
  • 30% of the cost with no upper limit on solar module installation.**

 

Having a solar system could also increase the value of your home. Surveys conducted by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development have shown that home values increase by an average of $20 for every $1 reduction in annual utility costs.
