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

Technology

Summer in Shreveport tends to bring with it some very hot days and the possibility for some unpleasant 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 through summer without costing you a ton in utility expenses. In fact, it could save so much that it’ll pay for itself in a quick 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 essentially 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 generated 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 is still left over, it can potentially be sold back to your utility company.

So, how will you know if solar-ready air conditioning is the right choice for you? Ponder these questions and, if your answers are mostly “yes,” give Moon's Air a call and we can help you get started with solar power:

  • Do you have an area to place solar panels that gets unobstructed sunlight?
  • Is this area large enough to house solar panels?
  • Are there any local laws that would prevent you from benefitting from solar panels?

If you’re unsure of your answer to any of these questions, Moon's Air can help.

A lot of people are concerned with the monetary investment involved with solar-ready air conditioning. Over time, your lower utility costs will pay you back, plus years of added savings. View this solar calculator to get a good idea of the money you’ll save plus how much better it will be for the planet. 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 provides a Solar Tax Credit, 25D, for homeowners who buy 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 can also boost the value of your home. Surveys conducted by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development have indicated that home values increase by an average of $20 for every $1 reduction in annual utility costs.
