Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from Triton HVAC & Refrigeration.

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

How can solar energy reduce utility costs?

Each solar module takes in energy and tranforms it into electricity that’s used primarily to power your HVAC equipment, 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 generates enough electricity for the AC and furnace, you can still likely cut your utility 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, computers – anything! Now if your solar energy system is generating electricity for these devices, as well, you’re substantially reducing your dependence on the utility company. Actually, you could find yourself paying less and less to the utility company at all. What’s even sweeter is that with net-metering, you can still take power from the grid if you need to, and you’ll be credited for any additional power your system generates that goes back into the utility’s grid.
