Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc. Here in Carpentersville, and almost everywhere else across the country, we have an abundance of sunlight, and we don’t have to pay anything to get it. That’s why a SunSource® Home Energy System can save you dollars on your energy expenses. Plus, the system can grow with your energy needs. 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 solar energy system, you could generate enough energy to power a portion of your appliances or even your whole home. If you consider a typical home’s yearly utility costs, nearly half of the total amount of energy used goes to powering heating and cooling systems. Even if your solar panels are just 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. That accounts for some major savings! Many residential solar systems could actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, also. 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 Carpentersville. 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 converting energy. Find out more about how solar energy systems work.
