Sometimes the rays of our Florida sun feel like they are melting us into a puddle. But those same rays of intense heat can also help to cool your home with solar power.
Solar air conditioning systems are becoming increasingly popular as a means to avoid dependency on fossil fuels and save money on monthly utility costs by harnessing the free power of the sun.
At Freedom Air and Heat, we are eager to learn about the latest advances in home comfort technology so that we will be fully equipped to install them for our customers. Here are some of the major benefits of a solar HVAC system.
Utilizing reusable energy sources like sunlight for power is not only environmentally friendly, it is also helpful for your personal needs. Your HVAC unit can operate at maximum energy efficiency, especially in our sunny Florida climate! The hotter and brighter it gets, the more energy your solar panels will soak up.
Lower Utility Bills
The cost of solar panels upfront might seem intimidating at first glance, but this can be easily offset by the long-term money you will save on your utility bills. Although you will still need some electrical power to run your AC, most of your energy will obviously come from the sunlight, which is 100% free. The cost of electricity in your home on a monthly basis should drastically drop after you install solar panels, and it will stay low forever. A solar panel system purchase truly is a long-term investment.
Tax Credits and Incentives
According to Energy STAR, you can deduct 30% of the total cost of your solar panels (including installation costs) from your taxes. This can help cut down on the initial cost so you can start focusing on saving money and energy over time.
Raise the Value of Your Home
With an investment like solar panels, the overall value of your home will increase. If you install a solar HVAC system and then decide to sell your home a few years later, it is important to take into account the upfront cost you spent and the years of savings future homeowners will enjoy when you are setting a price for your home.
One of the best benefits to solar HVAC is, of course, their positive impact on the environment. Less electric energy is consumed by your HVAC over all, and unlike fossil fuels, solar energy emits very little greenhouse gas like carbon dioxide. If you want to decrease the size of your carbon footprint while you simultaneously increase your satisfaction, installing a solar HVAC system is the way to go.
