Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from Schagrin Gas Company.

Using free energy from the sun to power your house will substantially lower your utility costs. You only need a system to capture this energy. That’s where a solar energy system like the Lennox® SunSource® comes in.

How can solar energy reduce utility costs?

Each solar module takes in energy and tranforms it into electricity that’s used mostly to power your HVAC equipment, 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 converts enough electricity for the AC and furnace, you can still possibly cut your electric bill in half every year.

However, the more modules you install, the more electricity you could create. Energy that isn’t used for your heating and cooling systems will be used to power other appliances in your home, such as your refrigerator and oven, or lights and any other devices you plug into an outlet. We’re talking TVs, cell phones – anything! Now if your solar energy system is producing electricity for these devices, as well, you’re significantly cutting back 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 sweeter is that with net-metering, you can still utilize power from the grid if necessary, and you’ll be credited for any additional power your system generates that is put back into the utility’s grid.
