Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from Gordon Air Conditioning.

When you’re using the sun’s energy to power your home, you’re going to experience lower utility costs. You just need a system to harvest this energy. That’s where we mention the SunSource® Home Energy System.

How can solar energy reduce utility costs?

Each solar module harvests energy and turns it into electricity that’s used primarily to power your HVAC systems, such as your air conditioner and furnace. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 48 percent of the energy used in a typical U.S. home comes from heating and cooling. Just think, even if your solar energy system only produces enough electricity for the AC and furnace, you can still likely cut your electric bill in half every year.

However, the more modules you install, the more electricity you could generate. Energy that isn’t used for your heating and cooling products will be used to power other appliances in your home, such as your refrigerator and washing machine, or lights and any other items you plug into an outlet. We’re talking TVs, chargers – anything! Now if your solar energy system is producing electricity for these devices, also, you’re significantly decreasing your dependence on the utility company. Actually, you could find yourself paying less and less to the utility company at all. What’s even better is that with net-metering, you can still use power from the grid if you need to, and you’ll be credited for any additional power your system generates that feeds back into the utility’s grid.

ENERGY STAR® qualified
