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

Summer in Robstown can tend to bring with it some really hot days and the potential for some unkind cooling bills. What if we told you there’s a way to prevent that costly energy spike in the summer? A solar air conditioner can keep you cool all summer without costing you a fortune in utility costs. In fact, it can save so much that it’ll pay for itself in a matter of a few years. After that, all that savings comes back to you.

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, captures the sun’s radiant energy and takes 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 collected but not needed by your air conditioner can be used to power electronics and small appliances, and if energy still remains, it can potentially be sold back to your utility company.

So, how might you know if solar-ready air conditioning is the right option for you? Ponder these questions and, if your answers are mostly “yes,” give McNatt Inc a call today to get started with solar power:
