Benefits of using Solar
Lower utility bills
Having a system that creates solar energy means you use less electricity from your utility company, and that can contribute to lower heating and cooling costs. A SunSource system from Lennox can reduce your heating and cooling bills by up to half.
Tax credits and incentives
The U.S. federal government and some states provide tax credits for renewable-energy systems. Depending on where you live, you may also be eligible for incentives through your utility company.
Higher home value
By lowering heating and cooling costs, an investment in a solar-energy system can help improve 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 bills.
More efficient home, healthier planet
Electricity generated by power plants produces carbon dioxide emissions that may pose serious threats to the environment. By using solar energy to heat and cool your home, you’re taking advantage of an infinitely renewable energy source, while contributing toward a healthier planet.
Solar power provides energy reliability. The rising and setting of the sun is extremely consistent. All across the world, we know exactly when it will rise and set every day of the year. While clouds may be a bit less predictable, we do also have fairly good seasonal and daily projections for the amount of sunlight that will be received in different locations. All in all, this makes solar power an extremely reliable source of energy.
