Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from Bormida Mechanical Services Inc. Here in Springfield, and almost everywhere else across the country, we have plenty of sunlight, and we don’t pay for it to appear. That’s why a SunSource® Home Energy System can save you dollars on your utility bills. Plus, the system can be added to as your energy needs also expand. How does a solar energy system help lower utility costs? Solar modules convert energy from the sun into electricity that you can use to power your home. Depending on the size and power of your equipment, you could generate enough energy to power a number of your appliances or potentially your whole home. If you look at a typical home’s yearly utility costs, roughly half of the total amount of energy consumed is spent on heating and cooling systems. Even if your solar panels are only generating enough to power your furnace and AC, your annual energy costs could still be cut in half because the energy used to power the HVAC systems was generated by the sun and not the utility grid. Say hello to serious savings! Many residential solar systems may actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, too. These might include other appliances, lights, TVs and computers, and all those other things you’d plug into an electrical socket. That means you’d be paying small amounts, if anything at all, in bills to your local utility company in Springfield. If your system doesn’t produce enough to cover the entire house, that’s okay. Your system will be connected to the utility systems, allowing you to use electricity from the grid when your SunSource isn’t generating energy. Learn more about how solar energy systems work.
