What Options Do You Have for Solar Air Conditioning in Las Vegas?

Summer in Las Vegas tends to bring with it some scorching hot days and the chance for some unsettling 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 all summer without costing you a fortune in utility costs. In fact, it could save so much that it’ll pay for itself in a quick few years. After that, all that savings goes back in to your wallet.

So, what is solar-ready air conditioning? A solar-ready air conditioner is essentially a traditional air conditioner that takes advantage of solar power. Solar panels, like those in the Lennox® SunSource® Home Energy System, gather the sun’s radiant energy and sends it to the air conditioner after it’s been converted to electrical current. The solar energy that’s created is first used to heat and cool your home. Energy that’s gathered but not needed by your air conditioner can be used to power electronics and small appliances, and if energy is remaining, it can potentially be sold back to your utility company.

So, how might you know if solar-ready air conditioning is a great choice for you? Consider these questions and, if your answers are mostly “yes,” give Polar Air & Heating Inc a call and we can help you get started with solar power:

  • Do you have an area to install solar panels that has unobstructed sunlight?
  • Is this area large enough to accommodate solar panels?
  • Are there any local laws that would prohibit you from benefitting from solar panels?

If you’re unsure of your answer to any of these questions, Polar Air & Heating Inc can help.

Many people are concerned with the expense involved with solar-ready air conditioning. Over time, your reduction in utility expenses will pay you back, plus years of additional savings. Check out this solar calculator to get a good idea of the money you’ll save plus how much more green you will be. What’s even better is that you could receive federal rebates on your investment and you may even be eligible for state incentives.

The U.S. government provides a Solar Tax Credit, 25D, for homeowners who purchase and install equipment that uses solar energy to produce 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 raise 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.

As you can see, there are quite a number of reasons to love solar-ready air conditioning. Call Polar Air & Heating Inc today at 702-623-0579 to talk about your solar air conditioning choices.
