Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from Nisair Air Conditioning. Using free energy from the sun to power your house will substantially lower your utility costs. You only need a system to harvest this energy. That’s where the SunSource® Home Energy System comes in. How can solar energy reduce utility costs? Each solar module harvests energy and converts it to 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 a typical U.S. home’s energy consumption comes from heating and cooling. Just imagine, even if your solar energy system only generates enough electricity for the AC and furnace, you can still potentially 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 washing machine, 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, also, you’re substantially 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 nicer is that with net-metering, you can still take power from the grid if necessary, and you’ll be credited for any extra power your system generates that feeds back into the utility’s grid. Discover how these residential solar systems work.
