Here in the United States, much of the country enjoys sufficient solar energy saturation, which puts us in the perfect location to utilize solar power efficiently. Much of the southeast, including the Charlotte, NC area, enjoys nearly five solar insulation hours, or full sun hours, each day on average, making using solar for power a viable option for reducing our dependence on fossil fuels. What is even more exciting is that, as a nation, we are quickly approaching grid parity, which means that before long, the cost of residential solar power will be less than other energy sources.
One industry where we are already seeing a huge amount of interest in solar power is solar air conditioning. As fossil fuel costs rise and summers continue to get hotter, it can be quite expensive to keep the average home cool in the summer. By incorporating solar air conditioning, a homeowner can expect to save enough to recoup the cost in far less time than ever before. If you are not enjoying this summer’s utility bills, it just might be the ideal time to consider making a change.
Solar air conditioning is not just more affordable than ever– it is the right thing to do. We have an obligation to safeguard our planet’s environment so that future generations can enjoy it without fear of the outcomes from pollution and climate changes. While you are enjoying up to 40% savings on your power bills, as well as the increased value for your home, you are doing something that is noble as well.
If you have questions about how solar air conditioning works, or would like a quote for making this change at your home, give us a call at Acosta Heating and Cooling. We have watched the heating and cooling industry change through the years ever since we started in 1972, and we’re excited about the newest technology and how it is changing our world for the better.
