Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from Bormida Mechanical Services Inc.

Using free energy from the sun to power your house will substantially lower your utility costs. You only need a system to harvest this energy. That’s where we mention the SunSource® Home Energy System.

How can solar energy reduce utility costs?

Each solar module takes in energy and turns it into electricity that’s used mostly 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 imagine, even if your solar energy system only produces enough electricity for the AC and furnace, you can still likely cut your electric 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 equipment will be used to power other appliances in your home, such as your refrigerator and washing machine, 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, as well, 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 nicer is that with net-metering, you can still take power from the grid if you need to, and you’ll be credited for any extra power your system generates that feeds back into the utility’s grid.

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 know 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 used with other ENERGY STAR-qualified products, such as our Lennox Signature® Series air conditioners and gas furnaces , you’ll save even more.
