Using Solar Power To Help Your HVAC Energy Bills

solar-techniciansIn the state of California, there is probably one resource we are never short on and that is sunlight. Most parts of our state have more than 250 days of sunshine throughout the year on average! So, why not make the most of that sunshine?

While we aren’t discouraging you from getting out of the house and enjoying the nice weather, that isn’t exactly what we are talking about here. Instead, we want you to think about putting the radiant energy that comes from sunlight to use to subsidize your home’s energy needs.

That’s right, we want to talk about using solar power in Fresno to keep your HVAC and overall energy bills more affordable.

When it comes to using solar power in your home, you have options. You can choose to have one or more appliances set up to use solar energy or you can have solar power that helps power everything in the house. Whatever you choose, it will end up benefiting you with lower energy bills!

The Perks of Using Solar Energy For Your HVAC Systems

When you work with a professional to get your HVAC system hooked up to a solar power array, you’ll enjoy the following benefits:

The sun powers both your heater and your AC unit

When it comes to using solar energy for your home, you aren’t going to use it to only cool or heat your home. In most cases, your HVAC systems are on the same circuit that the solar power will feed which means that this single power source can help to keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter. This remains true whether you have a central AC and furnace or a heat pump system.

Solar energy can reduce your bills by a good deal

By connecting solar panels to your HVAC system, you can save up to 70% of the energy needed to power your air conditioner and heater. This can save you a good deal of money throughout the year. This can, of course, vary based on your use of your HVAC, whether you have a grid-tied solar system to fill in the gaps when there is less sunlight, etc.

The energy is clean and eco-friendly

There is no wood or coal or any other fuel burned when it comes to creating solar energy. It’s just a conversion process that feeds the energy already within sunlight in order to help power your home’s HVAC system. This means you can run these systems easily without worrying about harming the environment to get that electricity.

Ultimately, using solar power to help power your HVAC system is going to provide benefits all year long. However, this will only apply if your solar system is set-up and kept up with the help of a professional team. We are here to provide the services you need.

We strive to provide honest answers and solutions to the problems our customers experience while remaining highly competitive in price, and offer the fastest turnaround you can find! Contact the team at Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning to schedule an appointment today.
