As a Lennox Dealer, we are very excited about the Lennox SunSource Solar-Ready heat pumps and air conditioners. Lennox has designed multiple heat pump and air conditioner options to plug and play with solar panels from SolarWorld, which is a solar panel manufacturer located right in Hillsboro, OR. These Lennox heat pumps and air conditioners are able to be installed on their own, just like any other heat pump or air conditioner, with the ability to add solar later, or they can be installed along with the solar panels. The solar portion of the system is installed by mounting the solar panels, and wiring them directly to the heat pump or air conditioner. The Lennox unit will run off the power generated by the solar panels, or if the heat pump is not using the full amount of power being produced, excess power will run back through the existing wiring for the heat pump, and will power other items in the home.
Not only are these Lennox comfort systems extremely efficient on their own, but the SunSource solar system takes heating and air conditioning efficiency to a whole new level. If you would like more information regarding one of these Lennox solar ready heat pumps or air conditioners, please contact us at (503) 304-1320.
