Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from iTemp Heating and Air Conditioning.

When you’re using free energy from the sun to power your house, you’re sure to significantly lower utility costs. You only need a system to take in this energy. That’s where the SunSource® Home Energy System comes in.

How can solar energy reduce utility costs?

Each solar module collects energy and turns it into electricity that’s used mainly to power your HVAC systems, such as your air conditioner and furnace. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 48 percent of the typical U.S. home’s energy usage 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 systems will be used to power other appliances in your home, such as your washer and dryer, or lights and any other items you plug into an outlet. We’re talking TVs, chargers – anything! Now if your solar energy system is generating electricity for these devices, too, you’re considerably decreasing your dependence on the utility company. In fact, each month you may find yourself paying less and less to the utility company at all. What’s even nicer is that with net-metering, you can still take power from the grid if you need to, and you’ll be credited for any extra power your system generates that feeds back into the utility’s grid.
